Improvements to Vaderstad’s Rapid A 400-800S series provide a better working environment for arable farmers by reducing maintenance time and increasing time spent in the fields. The seed drill can also be equipped with the SeedEye seed counter for easy and fully automatic calibration.
The fan has been integrated high up on the front edge of the seed hopper, minimising dust intake and consequently wear. The seed hopper has also been redesigned with integrated working lights and improvements to the platform and steps provide better access to it.
New V30 hubs are being introduced on the machine’s discs. The bearings require no lubrication and with a design that provides better protection against dust and soil they have improved service life.
The new wing lock function makes it easier to switch seed drills from the transport to working position. Wings can be folded hydraulically from the cab, without either Controlbox or E-Control. The new hydraulic wing locks save time and make work safer.
New intermediate packers and wing packers are a new stronger design. The wing packers are equipped with individual suspension of up to 100kg per packer wheel. Individual suspension provides better consolidation packing for the wings and steadies the seed drills. Tracking is excellent, even when operating over uneven ground.
