Hardi North America Inc. has announced the introduction of their first self-propelled sprayers in the North American market. The sprayer launch includes the Saritor 4000 and 5000 models and the Presidio 2700 model. Hardi has been a well-known manufacturer of trailer sprayers.
The Saritor 4000 and 5000 sprayers have tank capacities of 1,100 and 1,300 gal. respectfully, and are powered by Cummins QSB 6.7L 275-hp engines. The sprayers will reach road speeds of 33 mph. The 4-wd hydrostatic, Sauer-Danfoss H1 technology optimizes performance to provide speed, torque, traction control and progressive acceleration. When cruise control is selected, power and bias to maintain the operating speed is automatically managed.
The cab is large and spacious with a fully adjustable, air-ride operating seat. The SprayCenter armrest has joystick hydrostatic control, sprayer operations and spray controls attached that move in unison with the driver’s seat.
The Hardi HC 9500 controller offers guidance, data logging, application report generation, automatic steering and the Hardi AutoTerrain boom management system. It is ISOBUS compliant.
The DynamicFluid4 fluid system delivers the target rate without delay regardless if sections are switched on/off, changing speeds, or turning in or out of headlands. The system’s processor analyzes the spraying data 20 times a second, altering the pump speed with pinpoint precision.
The Terra Force boom is built strong with heavy-duty three-dimensional truss construction. It is available in sizes of 90-, 100-, 120- and 132-foot spans.
The Presidio 2700 is equipped with a 700-gal. main tank and 70-gal. flush tank. It is powered by a 173-hp, 6-cyl. Deutz TCD2012 engine. It features a 4-wd, 3-speed, hydrostatic transmission.
The cab on the new Presidio is operator friendly, comfortable and quiet. The work platform provides easy entry to the cab and easy access to the tank.
The sprayer offers Hardi SmartValve fluid system and is powered by a Hardi 650 wet seal run dry centrifugal pump. The Hardi Eagle boom installed on the new sprayer is available in sizes from 75 to 90 ft.
