Rapid is iconic
Rapid is a robust and sustainable machine that helps farmers streamline their agricultural activities through reduced effort and improved harvests. It offers a very high chance of plants growing regardless of the season. With Rapid the farmer can drill twice as fast as when using conventional drilling and soil cultivation. In parallel with this, tractors have been developed and technical developments have gone well.
- “I think that the machines will get bigger and bigger and that we will broaden their application. But their original versatility, quality and reliability will always remain. There is also good demand for used Rapids; Rapid is just getting bigger and bigger,” says Crister.
At Väderstad they say that it is the power of innovation that creates their success. There is now yet another version of Rapid using new technology, new IT features, new maintenance-free bearings and so on.
-“We were also the first to use E-Control, which, using an iPad as the only control unit, now opens up a whole new market. Our competitors said “that will never work”, but they were wrong. The iPad communicates wirelessly with the drill’s Gateway and is absolutely superb in its simplicity and user-friendliness. A system pretty much without limitations,” says Crister.
Rapid may be compared with Bahco’s adjustable spanner or Lockheed’s Hercules aircraft, i.e. a concept and quality that stands the test of time and can be constantly developed.
- “As long as we can see ahead, we can improve the concept further. We already have a number of ideas for increasing precision and making it even more attractive to our customers, and they support us in our work. Some products are immortal, Rapid is iconic,” concludes Crister.
