The history of Vaderstad begins in 1962, when Rune Stark began to grow tired of having to build a new wooden harrow at the beginning of every season. Such harrows were cheap, as wood was plentiful, but they tended to wear out and needed replacing every year. Stark therefore decided to build his own metal rigid tine harrow on his farm in Vaderstad, Sweden.

The machine was a success and was admired by other farmers, who began to place orders with Stark to build metal harrows for them. So the business was born. The company went on to build a stable folding harrow, taking advantage of the increasing availability of tractors with PTOs. In 1968, the company added a cultivator to its growing equipment range.

Initially, the company made its equipment on the family farm, but increasing orders meant that in 1972 a new factory had to be built to house the 20 staff. A location was found close to Vaderstad, and the company remains at this site today.

The toughness of Vaderstad machines led to them being very popular in the Holstein area of Germany, where dry clay soils proved too much for lesser machines. The company’s HV ring roller was a great success, and thousands were sold across Europe and as far afield as South Africa. They were also built under licence in the Soviet Union.

In 1982, the company produced the NZ cultivator. This rigid, fully welded machine went on to become the most successful cultivator in Scandinavia. It was also built under licence in New Zealand, hence the ‘NZ’ name, and in Soviet Union. The Rollex ring roller was added to the line-up along with a revolutionary new direct seed drill, the DS-drill.

By 1990 the company has 125 employees, and by the middle of the decade that had increased to 300. The Rapid seed drill was introduced along with a new Concorde drilling system. The 1990s saw rapid expansion, with the company opening subsidiaries in England, France Poland, Hungary and Germany. The company also partnered with organisations in New Zealand and Saudi Arabia. The 2000s saw the firm expand its interests by buying 49% of Canadian company Seed Hawk, a leader in direct seeding equipment. The company built new premises for its subsidiaries in Poland and Hungary and started new companies in Ukraine and Russia. In 2010, the company began to manufacture in Russia.

The company celebrated its 50th birthday in 2012, and in 2013 Vaderstad completed its acquisition of Seed Hawk and also invested heavily in new manufacturing capabilities. The company has also opened new subsidiaries in Denmark and Romania. 2012 also saw the total number of Rapid seed drills built reach 20,000.

Today the product range of Vaderstad is truly extensive. It covers cultivation equipment, drilling machines and planters. The philosophy of the company remains that of its founder, who said ‘build it to last’. This dedication to the toughest machines is joined by a focus on building simple equipment that can accomplish a number of tasks in a single pass. This is a combination that makes a used Vaderstad machine a very sensible option.
