Väderstad introduces the new BioDrill 500 for Tempo L

Väderstad is bringing a new micro granulate option for the Tempo L 12-24 to the market

The new BioDrill 500

The new BioDrill 500 has pneumatic distribution for precision application of starter fertiliser, slug pellets, or pesticide.

The BioDrill 500 has been displayed for farmers and dealers during an ongoing Väderstad Tour. The name comes from the high-capacity 500-litre hopper, which is centrally placed on the drawbar.

A powerful hydraulic fan on the front of the BioDrill 500 transports the micro granulates from the hopper to the distribution heads at the back of the Tempo L. The well-known Fenix III electrical metering system allows for ISOBUS sectional control with two sections and an output capacity of two to 50kg/ha at a speed of 7.5–15 km/h.


On each wing of the Tempo L there’s one distribution head that divides the micro granulate to each row unit and transports it to the coulter. Having two distribution heads, combined with two Fenix III metering system, also allows the possibility to shut off distribution on one side using Task Control.

To further control output of the micro granulates, the Fenix III electrical metering system has interchangeable rollers, which you can easily change depending on what output you prefer.

The BioDrill 500 can be paired with Tempo L 12-24 row units and is now available to order for selected machines with delivery in Spring 2024.
