Vaderstad adds eight-row option to Tempo maize drill range

A high-speed Tempo L8 maize drill has been launched by Vaderstad, which joins its current 12- and 18-row offerings.

The new eight-row model has a 3,000-litre fertiliser hopper and row spacing of 700-800mm.

However, there is the option to make it a 12-row model with narrower row widths – these can be down to 450-508mm.

The 3,000-litre fertiliser hopper is now available across all three drills in the range and it comes with the same Fenix 3 metering system as the 5,000-litre seed hopper.

Vaderstad says it is capable of dropping material up to rates of 350kg/ha at 15kph.

Production for the Tempo L 8 begins in November 2019, with prices yet to be announced.
