COMMANDER – Intelligent spraying - Fields ahead
The COMMANDER is designed to meet the demands of the modern professional farmer world-wide. This generation of sprayers is designed to lead the way in capacity, reliability, safety, optimization, ease of operation and precision.
The COMMANDER is a highend performer designed for continuous use by demanding operators. An example of the functional design is the logical layout of the left hand side of the sprayer, where all primary operations are located.
Take a closer look at some of the features making the COMMANDER the best choice on the market for trailed sprayers.
TWIN boom - World's best application system
Let’s take control. With the HARDI TWIN system, air will help you control the wind. You are in control of the speed and angle giving you the possibility of covering the whole plant, from top to bottom.
Spray drift from conventional sprayer can be so strong that the operator has to stop before having the spray job done. With efficient drift control it is much easier for the operator to be able to spray the entire field.
Under most conditions the farmers get at least twice as many hours for a safe and efficient spray job with the TWIN sprayer compared to conventional spraying.
The TWIN FORCE is available in sizes from 18 to 36 m.
DELTA FORCE boom - Compact in transport - wide in field
DELTA FORCE is designed to be a large boom. The selection of features and the layout of the boom structure are targeted to perform at high driving speed and high performance at boom widths of 24-39 m. The result is a boom with many simple and strong solutions which together give a high-performing and reliable boom with a simple setup, low maintenance and a great design.
A very advanced, but yet simple centre part controls the movements of the DELTA FORCE boom. The five pendulum settings allow to adjust the boom performance, either to a pendulum, which follows the sprayer movements, or to follow the level of the terrain.
HARDI DELTA FORCE is available in:
3-fold: 39/27/15 m, 36/27/15 m, 36/24/13 m, 33/25/15 m, 32/25/15 m.
2-fold: 30/15 m, 28/14 m, 27/14 m.
The HARDI SafeTrack is available on the COMMANDER (optional). This revolutionary design merges the benefits from other traditional systems into one high performance system. With the HARDI SafeTrack you do not have to choose between either tight turning radius or stability.
This ensures a minimum of crop damage combined with safe and user-friendly operation. A computer constantly monitors forward speed and turning radius to make sure that the correction made by the tracking system is as safe as possible.
SafeTrack ensures that the boom is always 100% perpendicular to the tramlines. This ensures perfect application when turning at the end of the fields.
The DynamicFluid4 system will calculate the consequences of the increased RPM and make the regulation instantly. The DynamicFluid4 property of pro-acting is based on 4 sensors in the fl uid system measuring RPM, position of regulation valves, flow and pressure. Combined with a specific new software and a new, unique ceramic regulation valve, DynamicFluid4 is offering precision in the application rate giving the best performance available on the market.
The sensors of DynamicFluid4 each have their individual task, but they will also work as backup for each other, and the regulation will continue. Regulation can be done manually.
AutoSelect – Change nozzles "on the go"
WIth AutoSelect you have the possibility to change between 4 functions:
- Spray with nozzle A
- Spray with nozzle B
- Spray with nozzle A and B
- Auto mode – here AutoSelect can work with pre-defined pressure settings or working speeds.
Excellent at speed changes
If you need to run with big changes in speed, AutoSelect can automatically, and instantly change between two sizes of nozzles, so one nozzles work can be taken over by a larger nozzle, at higher speeds. This will result in a higher droplet quality and a better application.
Change of dose during the spray job
If you need to change dose in the field, this can be done by changing to a more suited nozzle on the go - without compromising the spray quality. You have the possibility to use 9 to 13 sections and maximum 8 nozzles per section. AutoSelect works with air pressure, if you have a pneumatic brake system on your tractor your air source is already provided. If not, an air compressor is available as an option.
DELTA FORCE – 25 cm Nozzle space
- On-Center solution - the extra injectors are positioned between the 50 cm standard nozzle holders
- Available for: NAVIGATOR 4000 / 5000 / 6000
- Available for: COMMANDER: 4500 / 5000
- DELTA FORCE: 27-36 m
- 9 section EFC two-folded booms 27 / 28 / 30 m
- 13 sections EFC three-folded booms 32 / 33 / 36 m
- Stainless steel nozzle tubes as standard
The main argument for a distance of 25 cm is to reduce the height of the boom to 30 cm and to reduce the potential for spray drift. The low boom height requires a good boom management system. The best system on the market is the DELTA FORCE boom series along with HARDI AutoTerrain. The other advantage is a smaller nozzle VMD (volume median diameter) which increases the coverage.
