In 2021, Väderstad takes the next step for the high-speed Tempo planter by introducing a new model to the Tempo L family. The all-new Tempo L 32 will be the largest Tempo planter to date.
The new Väderstad Tempo L 32 is equipped with 32 row units and a 85 bu (3 000-litre) seed hopper.
– Tempo L 32 will be introduced in row spacings of 15" (375 mm), and Central Seed Fill will be standard. To manage the narrower row spacings, we have made an offset of every second-row unit. We also made a narrower row cleaner angle and a narrower gauge wheel, says Jörgen Dahl, Commercial Product Manager Planters, at Väderstad.
While the Tempo L 32 increases capacity, it still maintains the high precision that has made Väderstad’s Tempo family a favorite among farmers all over the world. For a wide range of crops, the number of row units planting can easily be adjusted to increase the number of uses even more.
– By raising half of the machine hydraulically, you can lock them in an upper position and continue to plant with only half of the row units. This makes it possible to for example plant Canola or soybeans with 32 rows on a 15" (375 mm) row spacing, and then changing for corn on 16 rows with 30" (750 mm) row spacing, says Jörgen Dahl.
Seed Hawk combination
FIn Canada, there is a possibility to attach the Tempo L 32 to a Seed Hawk 660 Air Cart. The Seed Hawk 660 Air Cart is able to hold up to 660 bu (23 000 litres) of fertilizer in 4 tanks with a split of 40+160+160+300 bushels.
– The Tempo L 32 and Seed Hawk 660 combination will provide enormous capacity and planting precision to the vast fields of the Canadian prairies. The fertilizer can be applied in two different ways - either 2.75" (7 cm) beside the seed furrow, or together with the seed in the seed furrow, says Jörgen Dahl.
On all other markets, Tempo L 32 will be available as a seed-only version. The new Tempo L 32 will be available from June 2021.
