The new Tempo L 18, which is added to the previous two Tempo L models, Tempo L 12 and Tempo L 16, has 18 row units and is available with 500 or 508mm row spacing.
- Tempo L 18 delivers exceptional planting precision and very high capacity when planting crops requiring a narrower row spacing, such as oilseed rape and sugar beet, says Mattias Hovnert, Sales & Marketing Director at Väderstad.
One machine – multiple crops
- To be able to plant a wide range of crops on the farm, Tempo L 18 can be rebuilt from 18 to 12 row units. In the 12-row configuration, the row spacing can be set between 700-800mm allowing for crops such as maize, and sunflower to be planted. The result is increased efficiency and minimised machine costs per hectare, says Mattias Hovnert.
The all-new Tempo L 18 was presented for the first time at Agritechnica 2017 and will be in production from June 2018.
