Superior precision - enormous capacity

High capacity fertiliser metering

Tempo L is equipped with a 5000 litre fertiliser hopper. The fertiliser is metered via the high capacity metering system Fenix III. The metering capacity for fertiliser is up to 350kg/ha at 15km/h. The electric driven Fenix III has the capability to adapt the fertiliser rate to varying field conditions by using a variable rate system. The high capacity fertiliser system maintains the high precision even at high speed.

Perfect depth control

Tempo L is equipped with hydraulic wing pressure which transfers weight from the inner section of the machine to its outer wings. 

This enables Tempo L to respond to any irregularities on the field and ensure an even emergence.

Telescopic wheel axle

To ensure the transport wheels follow the row spacing, Tempo L is fitted with a telescopic wheel axle which is easily adjusted from the cab. So whatever the row spacing, the transport wheels can be adjusted to always run between the seed rows. The wheel axles are easily set to 3m width for transport.

Zone 2 - Row cleaners (option)

The row cleaners are an option on Tempo. The task of the row cleaners is to remove crop residues, clods and stones. The demand for row cleaners is much higher when planting into no-till or when planting into fields with large amount of residues.

Floating row cleaners (option)

Zone 3 - Seed placement

With Tempo, planting can be carried out at very high speed, without compromising exceptional precision and accuracy. Tempo is extremely accurate and the seed meter assures perfect placement for every seed. This precision is of greatest importance to maximise the yield.
