See our QuickStart guides for your Tempo R.
The Tempo R 4-6 is a mounted high-speed planter available with 4 or 6 row units and optional granular fertilizer attachment. With easily adjustable row spacing, it is possible to plant numerous crops with the same unit for maximum versatility. Additionally, a 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 frame of the Tempo R is designed to easily accommodate various row spacings and number of row units.
With six rows, the planter can be configured to 17.7" or 19.7" row spacing, while the four-row version can be adjusted to 27.6", 29.5", 30" or 31.5".
The Tempo R can be equipped with an optional 34-bushel granular fertilizer hopper and fertilizer opening coulters.
The hopper is mounted on the planter with access to the main opening from steps on both sides. The high-capacity hopper results in fewer fillings to reduce downtime in the field.
Electric motors enable variable fertilizer rates, offering higher yield potential with the same amount of fertilizer.
Like the seed meters, the fertilizer meters have individual row shut-offs. This maintains uniform rates throughout the field, even on irregular fields. The fertilizer is metered through short hoses for fast reaction time when the rows are turned on and off.
The individual row shut off provides equal conditions for each plant, which leads to even crop emergence while reducing fertilizer costs.
The Tempo R is mounted on the tractor's three-point linkage, making it easy to maneuver in the field.
When not needed, the attached fertilizer hopper takes up little space to store.
You benefit from a tight turning radius on headlands and convenient transport between fields.
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.
Fertilizer opening coulters and a large fertilizer hopper make it possible to precisely band fertilizer while planting the crop.
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.
