Hardi Sprayer

Hardi Presidio 2700

Hardi North America enters the self-propelled sprayer market with two new series of machines—Presidio and Saritor. The Presidio 2700 features a 700-gal. tank, boom options of 80' or 90', a hydrostatic drive, a Deutz TCD2012 Tier 3 engine and groundspeeds of up to 25 mph. The
Presidio sprayer is equipped with the Eagle boom, which is designed to accurately apply at high speeds on rugged terrain such as no-till fields. It offers 58" of crop clearance. Its empty weight of 16,225 lb. makes it the lightest sprayer in its class, and its design is built for even weight distribution.

The Saritor line features two models—the 4000 (with a 1,100-gal. tank) and the 5000 (with a 1,300-gal. tank). Both can operate with a boom up to 132' wide and offer clearance of 48" to 54". Groundspeeds range from 31 mph for the 4000 to 33.5 mph for the 5000. Both are powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 3 engine and equipped with a new Terra Force boom that has a 3-D truss construction supported by an extra-wide paralift. The AutoTerrain boom management system provides on-the-go stability control. Its automatic height system allows the operator to plug in a predetermined height for consistent application.

The new Hardi sprayers are outfitted with the DynamicFluid4 system to deliver the precise target rate without delay. The DynamicFluid4 processor analyzes spraying data 20 times per second and provides preemptive rate control capability, precisely altering pump speed. Price: Presidio list price ranges from $215,993 to $219,606; Saritor 4000 list price ranges from $301,300 to $313,300; and the Saritor 5000 ranges from $311,500 to $322,500.
