Vredo Overseeder

Vredo has revealed that its revamped overseeder range will be on display at this year’s Grassland & Muck event.

Updates include a redesigned lid and back-end of the seed hopper, which the company says are more curved to provide a more reliable flow of seed.

Lid chains have also been replaced by gas springs to make things safer while loading.

There’s now the option of a seed grill to protect the agitator shaft and sieve any debris, and the gearbox has a new spindle adjustment for easier calibration.

Also on display will be the VT4556.

The machine now has more power and a lower fuel consumption, thanks to the new Scania 12-litre, six-cylinder engine.

The 450hp block provides 14% more torque at 18% lower rpm than the previous model, the company claims.

With an empty or full slurry tank and the slurry injector in lift position, the weight distribution on the front and rear axles is pretty much 50-50.

Vredo has also introduced NIR sensor technology on the slurry system so N, P and K values of the slurry can be analysed on the go.
