Väderstad Tempo F 8 in field

Tempo F 6-8

Maximum responsivity

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.

Selected features

Väderstad Tempo impressive depth precision

Impressive depth control

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 precisio

Väderstad Tempo offers intelligent wheel adaptation

Intelligent wheel adaptation

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.

Väderstad Tempo F high capacity fertiliser hopper

High capacity fertiliser hopper

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.

Väderstad Tempo row shut off saves fertiliser

Row shut off saves 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.

Väderstad high speed planter

Minimal soil compaction

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.

Curve compensation ensures a consistent rate

Active sensors communicate when the machine is turning and adjust each row unit's metering output to ensure a consistent rate over the full Tempo planter width.

Product concept

Zone 1 - Fertiliser placement (option)

Disc fertiliser coulters and a large fertiliser hopper makes it possible to place fertiliser together with the main crop.

Fertiliser kit

Zone 2 - 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.

Floating row cleaners

Zone 3 - Seed placement

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.

Zone 4 - Closing

When the seed is planted the closing wheel closes 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.

Narrow closing wheel 25mm

Wide closing wheel 50mm

Treaded closing wheel 50mm

Pointed closing wheel

Spiked closing wheel
