Vaderstad launches central-fill high speed Tempo drill

A new central-fill function is an option for the high speed planter Tempo L to increase capacity to this already world-record holding drill. It will be on show for the first time at Agritechnica 2019, with 12-24 row unit versions –Tempo L 12, Tempo L 16, Tempo L 18 and Tempo L 24 – available on the market early 2021.

Central-fill functionality means that instead of filling seed in each of the row units, the operator will only have to fill one large central 3000 litre seed hopper. The Tempo L drill will then take care of seed distribution to each row unit.

The central-fill feature works as a pressurized system, constantly feeding the seed meters at which point the patented PowerShoot technology ensures excellent establishment.
