The WideLining system on the Väderstad Tempo precision drill allows users to spread slurry in a standing maize crop without adversely affecting the yield potential of the field. Setting of the tramlines is accomplished by hydraulically shifting four row units to the side. To do that, the row spacings are reduced from 750mm to 600m. The maximum tramline width is 1,050mm. To set the tramlines relative to the work width of the slurry spreader, the machine computes the field size and sets up the rows automatically. This way it is possible to set up the tramlines in maize without altering the crop spacing within the rows while maintaining the seed rate.
