Väderstad presents Swift with integrated packer

Väderstad is expanding the Swift family by launching a Swift with EasyRunner. EasyRunner is an integrated light soil packer available in 5.60m and 7.20m. The L-shape profile of the ribs helps make the packer more aggressive than a conventional cage packer. At the same time, the shape of the ribs contributes to the machine having excellent depth-holding characteristics, as it is supported on a wide track.

“The Swift was launched in 2010 and Väderstad is now taking the next step. The development of a Swift with integrated packer is based on a need which has been expressed by many customers. This has come primarily from farmers who farm on slightly lighter soils and are looking for a combination of material incorporation and reconsolidation. The design of the packer with its L-shaped rib profiles and with a diameter of 382mm, help contribute to Swift’s excellent depth-holding characteristics and ability to break up clods, as well as making it a lot more aggressive than a conventional packer,” says Sales Director Fredrik Lundén.

“The machine has been developed for farmers who want to make things simpler and carry out several jobs in a single pass. The machine is compact and can manage depths down to 20cm,” says Fredrik Lundén.

“For those farmers looking for a heavier and more powerful packer, there is still the option of hitching a roller behind the machine, maintaining the Swift’s versatility,” adds Lundén.

The machine has been developed in Germany and Sweden and will be available for delivery from June 2014.
