The European Evolution
SimTech Aitchison are supplying low-cost New Zealand machines to livestock farmers for predominant grassland use. It is a mark of the effectiveness of the system in a variety of conditions that the two areas with the greatest densities of these drills are Ireland and Corsica - opposite climatic extremes, in European terms!
In New Zealand where extensive grassland management is the norm, quantities of vegetation tend to be modest than often is the case in Europe. In addition, they have millions of sheep to keep the grass cropped short when required. Thus the models developed for New Zealand use have limitations when used in the context of a more challenging volume of vegetation.
So alongside these machines, George Simon has been developing a new range of drills based on the New Zealand principle but adapted to European requirements and with an unrivalled versatility.
The 3m SimTech T-SEM has now proved itself on farms and with contractors covering the full spectrum of agricultural use.
There is now a 4.8m model and a 6m version equipped with Accord type distribution systems. For arable use, the 3m and 6m models are also available with wider row spacing 18.75cms instead of the standard 15cms and the 4.8m with 18.5cms.
