See our QuickStart guides for your Tempo R.
The Tempo R 12-18 is a rigid, mounted high-speed planter available with 12 or 18 row units and optional granular fertilizer system. With easily adjustable row spacing, it is possible to plant numerous crops with the same unit for maximum versatility. The three-point linkage provides excellent maneuverability on tight headlands. Additionally, the rigid frame benefits from fewer moving parts, minimal weight and reduced maintenance without compromising excellent precision.
The Väderstad Tempo is a new generation high-speed planter, delivering unmatched precision at double the speed of traditional planters. No-till, min-till or conventional tillage – the Tempo performs exceptionally well in all conditions. It gives your crop the best start possible with even emergence.
The Tempo R frame allows easy setup of numerous row spacings and number of row units, including odd numbers.
The row spacing on the 18-row Tempo R 18 can be set as narrow as 17.7", while the 12-row model can be configured between 27.6" to 31.5". This results in more acres per season and consequently lowered costs.
Equipped with optional transport wheels and drawbar, the Tempo R 12 and Tempo R 18 can be easily transported between fields.
Despite the wide working width, this feature reduces transport width to less than 10 feet.
The FH 2200 front-mounted granular fertilizer hopper enables precision application.
The 62.4-bushel hopper is equipped with an electric Fenix III metering system, built for high capacity and high working speeds in the field. The FH 2200 integrates with the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control or the ISOBUS terminal of the tractor.
The iPad-based control system, Väderstad E-Control, wirelessly delivers data about each seed that travels through the planter, including seeding quality, skips, doubles, spacing and rate.
You benefit from user-friendly remote setup and calibration, as well as easy, real-time monitoring and control.
Through the iPad, you can download the most recent software updates, allowing your system to always stay current with future developments.
The Tempo is able to band fertilizer using the FH 2200 front hopper. The fertilizer coulters maintain a high level of precision even at high speeds.
Row cleaners are optional on the Tempo. They're used to remove crop residue, clods and rocks ahead of the disc openers. The need to use row cleaners is much higher when planting into no-till conditions or other fields with large amounts of residue.
After the seed is planted, the closing wheels cover the seed trench, creating perfect conditions for germination. Several industry-standard, third-party closing wheel solutions can also be used, depending on the needs of each farm.
