The new Spirit 400C/S includes the innovative E-Control control system including ISOBUS Task Control, updated hydraulics, SeedEye blockage monitoring, increased accessibility and an updated design.
- The Spirit family is known to provide impressive precision at high working speeds on the field. The new update of Spirit 400C/S makes it benefit from key features from the larger models in the Spirit range, says Björn Jeansson, Commercial Product Manager for seed drills, at Väderstad.
The four-metre wide Spirit 400C/S is equipped with a high-capacity hopper with an integrated fan. With two platforms and an open machine design, it provides great access to all components throughout the machine. With updated hydraulics, Spirit 400C/s is delivered with active seed coulter pressure, adjustable following harrow pressure, as well as automatic headland sequence control.
- In the field, the driver has full control over the seeding operation via the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control. Equipping Spirit 400C/S with SeedEye blockage monitoring, the seed and fertiliser output can be visualised in real time. If a deviation should occur, the SeedEye system gives an immediate warning so that any impact on the drilling can be quickly solved, says Björn Jeansson.
The new Spirit 400C/S is available as the seed-only version Spirit 400S, as well as the combi versions Spirit 400C FIX and Spirit 400C InLine.
- The FIX version places the fertiliser in 5cm wide strips at 125mm row spacing, in front of every seed row. While, Spirit 400C InLine is designed to apply a low starter fertiliser rate in a separate outlet together with the seeds in the seed coulter, says Björn Jeansson.
The new Spirit 400C/S will go into production in February 2021.
