CAPACITY AT A NEW LEVEL
Tempo L with Central Seed Fill is equipped with a 3,000-liter hopper that delivers seed to the row units via on-demand airflow. It also is equipped with Tempo’s well-proven Gilstring metering unit with PowerShoot technology, which ensures the best possible seed distribution, depth, and germination.
PRECISION AND VERSATILITY
Tempo L with Central Seed Fill offers unmatched seeding capacity and accuracy.
In addition, it handles the full range of seeds, from small seeds such as canola to corn and high densities of soybeans.
SEED METERING SYSTEM
The technology behind the new Tempo Central Seed Fill from Väderstad is very intuitive. There is no central drive to meter the seeds; instead, each row has its own electric motor that adjusts the number of seeds needed to assist its high-precision PowerShoot metering unit.
Underneath the central 3 000-liter seed hopper, there is a feeding system for the row units. If there is an airstream in one particular gate, that gate will pick up seeds and send it out to the row unit. Every gate supports two row units thru a divider on the wings.
On each row unit there is a collector on top of the PowerShoot seed metering system. The collector works as a small buffer of seeds. When the collector is full of seeds the airstream in the feeding system stops, meaning that the transport of seed stops for that row unit.
CALLING FOR SEEDS
When the seed level in the collector later starts to run low, the airstream starts again making the Central Seed Fill system transport seeds to fill up the collector.
This means that each row unit will call for seeds, when needed, by themselves.
When the seeds reach the Tempo row units, with PowerShoot technology, each row unit takes control and, with positive air pressure, shoots the seeds at a speed between 40 and 50 km/h down the tube into the soil, ensuring the best seed distribution, depth, and germination possible.
In addition, it handles the same wide range of seeds, from the smallest seeds such as canola to corn and high-density soybeans.
The new Tempo L Central Seed Fill offers the same world-record capacity and accuracy as all Tempo models.
The Tempo L planter with Central Seed Fill is available in versions from 12 to 24 rows, always in even number.
The spacing between rows is 45 and 50cm. The rows are staggered, with 25cm difference between long and short rows, which makes the stubble flow easier.
