A common feature of the SPL Ultra range of points, wings and shins is the use of tungsten tiles to protect the most vulnerable soil-engaging surfaces. The first items available to order in the UK and Ireland are designed for a number of specific subsoilers and cultivators.

These include a heavy-duty point and reversible lower shin for the Spaldings Flat-Lift subsoiler and the subsoiling point with 75mm wings and wide-wing option for the Keeble Progressive cultivator. Other components in the new range are designed for cultivators and drills from Väderstad, Simba/Great Plains, Horsch, Kuhn, Kverneland and KRM.

“Listening to our customers’ experiences has enabled us to identify soil-engaging parts that would benefit from enhanced performance,” says Steve Constable, managing director at Spaldings. “Detailed analysis of wear patterns by our development engineers on both OEM and non-genuine wearing parts has resulted in design improvements that make a real difference to the life of these parts.”

Further items will be added to the range later this year.
