Tempo L 32 will be the largest Tempo planter yet
In 2021, Väderstad takes the next step for the high-speed Tempo planter by introducing a new model to the Tempo L family. The all-new Tempo L 32 will be the largest Tempo planter to date.
The new Väderstad Tempo L 32 is equipped with 32 row units and a 3 000-litre seed hopper.
- Tempo L 32 will be introduced in row spacings of 375mm or 15 inches, and Central Seed Fill will be standard. To manage the narrower row spacings, we have made an offset of every second-row unit. We also made a narrower row cleaner angle and a narrower gauge wheel, says Jörgen Dahl, Commercial Product Manager Planters, at Väderstad.
While the Tempo L 32 increases capacity, it still maintains the high precision that has made Väderstad’s Tempo family a favorite among farmers all over the world. For a wide range of crops, the number of row units planting can easily be adjusted to increase the number of uses even more.
- By raising half of the machine hydraulically, you can lock them in an upper position and continue to plant with only half of the row units. This makes it possible to for example plant oilseed rape or soya with 32 rows on a 375mm row spacing, and then changing for maize on 16 rows with 750mm row spacing, says Jörgen Dahl.
Seed Hawk combination in Canada.
For the Canadian market, there is a possibility to attach the Tempo L 32 to a Seed Hawk 660 Air Cart. The Seed Hawk 660 Air Cart is able to hold up to 23 000 litres of fertiliser.
- The Tempo L 32 and Seed Hawk 660 combination will provide enormous capacity and planting precision to the vast fields of the Canadian prairies. The fertiliser can be applied in two different ways - either 7cm beside the seed furrow, or together with the seed in the seed furrow, says Jörgen Dahl.
On all other markets, Tempo L 32 will be available as a seed-only version. The new Tempo L 32 will be available from June 2021.
