Tempo L 24

Väderstad introduces the new high-speed precision planter Tempo L 24. With a row spacing from 450 to 508mm, Tempo L 24 is the largest high-speed precision planter for sugar beet and oilseed rape to date.

- The world-record Väderstad Tempo planter is known for combining enormous capacity with an outstanding planting precision. Now, the Tempo family is growing and we are introducing the all-new Tempo L 24, says Mattias Hovnert, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Marketing at Väderstad, and continues:

- Tempo L 24 is designed for high capacity precision planting of small seeded crops, such as oilseed rape and sugar beet.

Tempo L 24 have 24 row units and is available with a row spacing at 450, 457, 500 or 508mm. Each seed hopper holds 25 litres and the machine can be equipped for fertiliser metering with a 5000 litre fertiliser hopper.

- Thanks to the Tempo seed meter with the patented PowerShoot technology, each seed is granted the exact same start in all conditions. PowerShoot takes full control of the seed all the way down to the soil; gravity, vibrations and slopes are removed from the equation. Thereby, Tempo delivers an unmatched precision at very high speed, says Mattias Hovnert.

The new Tempo L 24 will have its world premiere on Canada’s Farm Progress Show in June. Tempo L 24 will go into production in November 2018.
