See our QuickStart movies for Tempo F.
Tempo F is a trailed high-speed planter, available with 6 or 8 row units and fertiliser application as an option. The placement and design of the support wheels maintain the seed depth in all conditions which ensures an even crop. Tempo F offer very high fertiliser capacity with individual row shut-off, resulting in maximised uptime and fertiliser savings.
Väderstad Tempo is a new generation high-speed planter, delivering an unmatched precision at double the speed of traditional planters. No-till, min-till or conventional tillage – Tempo performs exceptionally in all conditions. The crops gets the best start possible which results in an even emergence.
To ensure optimal depth control, Tempo F is equipped with hydraulic support wheels mounted between the row units, this avoids any tilting in hilly conditions. The wide tyre profile maintains the working depth irrespective of soil type. The large diameter ensures a smooth ride at high speeds, improving planting precision.
The eight-row Tempo F 8 has four support wheels which are coupled as a hydraulic bogie unit – walking tandem.
This ensures that the load on all wheels are the same in the field, giving the machine a smoother ride on uneven ground.
Tempo is designed to fit most tractors. It has a low hydraulic requirement, self-sufficient electric power and requires low draught force.
Tempo F has the option to equip the planter with a PTO-driven fan, this reduces the dependency of the tractor whilst still maintaining high precision planting.
Tempo F can be equipped with a large fertiliser hopper and disc fertiliser coulters. Depending on model, the fertiliser hopper contains 1275 or 1700 litres.
The hopper is easy and safe to access via a platform and its large opening improves filling time and reduces downtime in the field.
Electric motors enable variable fertiliser rate, offering higher yield with the same amount of fertiliser.
Together with the seed metering, the fertiliser metering has individual row shut off. This maintains the correct application even on irregular fields.
The fertiliser is metered through short hoses which improves the reaction time.
Individual row shut off provides equal conditions for the plant which leads to an even crop emergence and reduces fertiliser costs.
The advantage of a trailed planter is less weight placed on the tractor. With this reduced weight a smaller tractor can be used and also lower tyre pressures. The weight is distributed between the tractor and the planter which in turn reduces the soil compaction rate. The benefit of this is a healthy soil structure and an even crop emergence.
The iPad-based control system, Väderstad E-Control wirelessly delivers data about each seed that travels through the machine, including seeding quality, skips, doubles, distance in the row, and rate.
You benefit from user-friendly remote set up and calibration, as well as easy, real-time monitoring and control.
With the iPad you can upload the most recent program software which allows you to benefit from future developments.
Disc fertiliser coulters and a large fertiliser hopper makes it possible to place fertiliser together with the main crop.
The row cleaners are an option on Tempo. The task of the row cleaners is to remove crop residues, clods and stones. The demand for row cleaners is much higher when planting into no-till or when planting into fields with large amount of residues.
With Tempo, planting can be carried out at very high speed, without compromising exceptional precision and accuracy. Tempo is extremely accurate and the seed meter assures perfect placement for every seed. This precision is of greatest importance to maximise the yield.
When the seed is planted the closing wheel shut the seed slot and ensures perfect conditions for germination. Depending on farming requirements, the interface further allows for several industry-standard third-party closing wheel solutions.
