High-precision seed metering

The technology behind the new Väderstad Tempo Central Seed Fill system is very intuitive. There is no central motor metering out seeds - instead each row unit regulate the number of seeds needed to assist its individual high-precision PowerShoot seed metering system.

High capacity hopper

Underneath the central 3 000 litre seed hopper, there is a feeding system for the row units. If there is an airstream in one particular gate, that gate will pick up seeds and send it out to the row unit. Every gate supports two row units thru a divider on the wings.

Seed collector

On each row unit there is a collector on top of the PowerShoot seed metering system. The collector works as a small buffer of seeds. When the collector is full of seeds the airstream in the feeding system stops, meaning that the transport of seed stops for that row unit.

Calling for seeds

When the seed level in the collector later starts to run low, the airstream starts again making the Central Seed Fill system transport seeds to fill up the collector. This means that each row unit will call for seeds, when needed, by themselves.

Telescopic wheel axle

To ensure the transport wheels follow the row spacing, Tempo L is fitted with a telescopic wheel axle which can be easily adjusted from the cab. So whatever the row spacing, the transport wheels can be adjusted to always run between the seed rows. The wheel axles are easily set to 3m width for transport.

Zone 1 - Row cleaners (option)

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.
