See our QuickStart guides for your Tempo R.
Tempo R 4-6 is a mounted high-speed planter available with 4 or 6 row units, and fertiliser metering as option. With easily adjustable row spacing, it is possible to plant numerous crops with the same machine, enabling greater usage. Additionally, a rigid frame benefits from fewer moving parts, minimal weight and reduced maintenance without compromising the excellent precision Tempo R offers.
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.
Tempo R has a frame designed to enable simple setup of row spacing and number of row units.
With six rows, the machine can be configured to 450 or 500mm row spacing, while the four-row version can be adjusted to 700, 750, 762 or 800mm.
As an option, Tempo R can be equipped with a 1200 litre fertiliser hopper and disc fertiliser coulters.
The hopper is mounted on the planter, with access to the big opening from steps on both sides. The high capacity hopper result in fewer fillings which 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.
Tempo R is mounted on the tractors three-point linkage, making it easy to manoeuvre in the field.
Without the need of a front hopper, the attached fertiliser hopper takes up little space when stored.
You benefit from small turning radius on headlands and convenient transport between fields.
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.
