Here is a more direct (and safer) way:

library(raster)
set.seed(0)
r <- raster(nrows=22, ncols=20, xmn=-58, xmx=-48, ymn=-33, ymx=-22)
s <- stack(lapply(1:5, function(x) {setValues(r, round(runif(22 * 20,
min=0, max=600), digits=0))}))

intervals <- seq(0, 600, 100)

x <- cut(s, intervals, include.lowest=TRUE)
freq(x, merge=TRUE)
