Vaderstad launches its biggest ever Tempo precision drill

Vaderstad has built its biggest-ever Tempo precision drill, capable of sowing 32 rows in a single pass.

The high-speed seeder has narrower 375mm spacings than the smaller Tempo models, achieved by offsetting every other row and reducing the cleaner angle and gauge wheel size.

This has allowed Vaderstad’s designers to accommodate the extra coulters, which should make it useful for crops such as oilseed rape.

It’s also possible to hydraulically lift and lock half of the row units out of work, turning it into a 16-row drill with a 750mm spacing for maize planting. It comes with a 3,000-litre seed hopper and central seed fill.

Prices for the Tempo 32 are yet to be released.
