Väderstad Rapid A 400-800S Seed Drill

The pneumatic seed drill Rapid A 400-800S is a powerful drill ready for future farming. The three seed drills in the product family are seed-only versions equipped with a high precision metering system. Rapid A 400-800S is designed with the driver in focus, while never compromising on the important seeding precision and crop quality.

The simplicity in construction, paired with a high machine quality ensures a long working life and low operating costs. 

Features & Benefits

Rapid A 400–800S has a centralised platform with access from both sides, saving time for the operator. Both the hopper and the fan can be accessed when required from the platform.

  • The metering system Fenix can handle seed rates from 1.5kg/ha up to 500kg/ha without any parts having to be changed. Thanks to the hydraulic drive, high seed rates can be metered without lowering the driving speed. 
  • Väderstad SeedEye is a unique system for seed counting and seed monitoring. With SeedEye farmers can easily set the number of seeds per square metre, without the need for calibration. SeedEye ensures excellent seeding results with full control.
  • The dynamic tramlining function makes tramlining simpler and more reliable than ever before. The function is easy to setup with the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control.
