Precision Delivery Air Cart 400 – 1000

Smart, flexible, efficient

To bring the highest level of technology and precision to your farm, Väderstad has developed the Precision Delivery line of air carts.

Part of the Seed Hawk concept

A seed’s greatest potential is at the time it is placed in the ground. For over 30 years, Väderstad Air Seeders have been delivering the precision seed-to-fertilizer placement required for outstanding emergence. The metering system is compatible with all types of seed sizes and, combined with the cart size of your choice, allows the Precision Delivery AIr Carts to adapt to a wide variety of cropping preferences.

Individual bin load cells

Individual bin load cells

Stopping to guess how much product you have left in the tank is a thing of the past. The modular tank design of Precision Delivery Air Carts features individual compartment load cells. 

The load cells weigh each bin separately and provide real-time verification of remaining product. The iCon Wireless Control software uses the innovative Acres to Empty feature to calculate how many acres it will cover. This ensures more efficient filling times and allows you to pinpoint your required fill volume.

Fenix III rendering

Fenix III metering

Farming’s most advanced metering technology is engineered for exceptionally precise seeding, reliable performance and easy maintenance. 

Integrated, seamless design defines the Fenix III metering system, ensuring consistent product flow. It means the motor, rollers, housing, inlets and outlets work together flawlessly – and handle products like inoculants, micronutrients and problematic seeds with ease.

Sectional Control Technology™

Sectional control works in conjunction with an independent, toolbar-mounted GPS system to eliminate overlap, save on input costs, and reduce ground disturbance of already seeded areas.

The system controls the meters on your Seed Hawk air cart and the openers on your Seed Hawk toolbar to instantly stop roller rotation and product flow when encountering previously seeded ground. It also lifts the openers so you do not disturb the precision seed and fertilizer placement already completed.

Next level precision is here – introducing SCTx with Turn Compensation. SCTx uses an additional GPS receiver mounted on the tractor to greatly enhance system capabilities. This means more complex manoeuvres in the field and unprecedented capabilities to properly predict where the air drill should turn off and on.

Variable Rate Seeding

The amount of fertilizer and seed required to achieve desired yield will vary across the field and, most times, over the width of the toolbar. Seed Hawk’s iCon system is compatible with industry leading prescription mapping to dial in the exact amount of product desired, reducing the amount of inputs used.Each 10 feet of toolbar has its own seed and fertilizer meter to ensure greater accuracy in variable terrain.

New this year: Updated Prescription mapping will now allow users to achieve 0 rate zones, as well as pause prescription maps during field operations.

Available in Summer 2022 Software Update
