Vredo Dodewaard B.V.

The beginnings of the company go back to 1947. At that time Mr. B de Vree, a farmer’s son, started an agricultural contractors business. The activities were diverse and machines where often adapted to the specific demands of the heavy clay soils of the local area. The adaption of existing machinery changed, in the course of time, slowly into the development of new machines. The agricultural contracting business changed therefore more and more into an engineering company and later into a fully-fledged factory. In 1976 de Vree introduced a completely self-developed machine, it was the Vredo Overseeder. At the end of the 80’s the same double disc principal was used for the development of the unique Vredo Slurry Injectors. Vredo has a worldwide dealernetwork voor the different productgroups. These dealers are selected by Vredo and they get technical trainingsessions on a regular base.

In 1989 Vredo mounted a slurry tank on top of a Horsch three wheel self-propelled flotation vehicle. This was Vredo’s first foray into working with self-propelled vehicles. Since 1994, Vredo produces and engineres the self-propelled vehicles entirely in-house.

Vredo overseeding principle

  • Double V-shaped discs which make a little cut in the soil.
  • Seed is places in between the discs, in the cut.
  • The soil springs back itself & the slit is closed by the compaction roller.
  • Optimal situation for germination: The seed is in contact with the soil and gets the optimum amount of light and air.
  • The seed is protected against weather influences such as frost and birds.

The combination of Double Discs and the spring and turf guard ensures an optimal seeding depth which means the most efficient usage of expensive seed.

From an article in the newspaper in 1980: ‘‘Ben de Vree, inventor of the overseeder’’

Vredo designs, manufactures and sells high-quality products for agricultural and fine turf sectors.

Vredo has set itself the goal that its products should contribute to the further development of the sectors.

Vredo considers it important that all parties concerned (sales partners, customers and Vredo) are able to achieve a good financial result with Vredo's products.

Turf guard of the overseeder protects the turf, by keeping it into place while the discs make a small cut in the soil

  • Double V-shaped discs which make a little cut in the soil.
  • Seed is places in between the discs, in the cut.
  • The soil springs back itself & the slit is closed by the compaction roller.
  • Optimal situation for germination: The seed is in contact with the soil and gets the optimum amount of light and air.
  • The seed is protected against weather influences such as frost and birds.

The combination of Double Discs and the spring and turf guard ensures an optimal seeding depth which means the most efficient usage of expensive seed.

  • Double discs: V-shaped resulting in a slot cut open in the ground.
  • The slurry is injected into the soil at root-level and none on the grass.
  • Minimum loss of nitrogen.
  • The optimum fertilization conditions.

  • Low wheel pressure.
  • Optimum weight distribution.
  • 4 or 6 wheel drive, four wheel steering and crab steering.
  • Ideal self-propelled slurry tank combination.
  • Ergonomic workstation.

  • Best flow with very low resistance.
  • Low drive power.
  • Pumping action.
  • Contact-free slicing allowing minimal wear.
