During development work, we test various technical solutions in computer-simulated stress tests and in practical prototype tests in the field.
Quality pays in the long run. We know that good quality is the same as good customer satisfaction. This knowledge influences all aspects of our work, from choice of materials to testing methods, when we are developing our products. When choosing materials and components, we often select the slightly more expensive option if this gives a longer life. A machine that works without problems for a long time and that retains a high second-hand value is cheaper in the long run and more fun to own.
Over the years, Väderstad has built up an industrial testing operation with different types of rigs and a knowledge of how measured data reflect actual wear. The rigs allow scientific testing of different solutions in a short time.
Punishment in the quarry
The graduation exam for newly developed machines takes place in a nearby stone quarry. During this intensive testing, the machines are subjected to the toughest and stoniest conditions possible so that we can quickly separate good solutions from weaker designs.
Seed Hawk warranty
You can purchase Seed Hawk seeding equipment and parts with the confidence of knowing our products have what it takes to keep you running in the field, year after year.

Our machine warranty applies for two years from the date of delivery, or for 1000 hectares per metre working width (e.g. 4000 hectares for a 4m Rapid) depending on which occurs first.
Lifetime warranty on discs
