Frame

Heavy-duty chassis manufactured in high tensile steel
The COMMANDER chassis is built in highstrength steel ensuring exceptional strength, at a relatively low weight. Time has shown that the chassis can stand fatigue year after year.

The chassis is designed with a low center of gravity
A sprayer with a high center of gravity can be very dangerous to operate. Consequently, great efforts have been made to ensure that the COMMANDER has the lowest possible center of gravity without compromising clearance under the sprayer.

Excellent clearance
The unique design of the axle and frame ensures excellent crop clearance. No brake rods or steering components are lower than the axle.

The drawbar on the tractor and the axle on the sprayer will therefore always be the lowest points on the sprayer. The clearance under the axle will vary between 2.3 - 2.6 ft. depending on tire and wheel set-up.

All cabling, wires and hoses are mapped for each model. Routing is primarily made in cable trays. The cable trays are designed so wires and cable hoses are separated from hoses which will move when pressure is added and relieved.

Service area

Easy tank inspection
The lid is located in close proximity to the platform to allow easy inspection of the tank. The design of the tank allows the operator excellent visibility of both sides and the bottom of the tank. COMMANDER 5500 and 7000 l have an integrated footstep and a safety handle giving access to the tank lid.

Fold-down ladder for easy access
The fold-down ladder simply pulls down for easy access to the platform.

Low platform placement
The sprayer design gives the possibility of a low placement of the platform.

SafeTrack

The HARDI SafeTrack is available as an option on the COMMANDER. This revolutionary design merges the benefits from other traditional systems into one high performance steering system. With the HARDI SafeTrack you do not have to choose between a tighter turning radius or better stability.

Narrow track width
With the SafeTrack, wheel track widths down to 60 - 120 in. wide tire is possible. This can be done without compromising the turning radius.

Axles, brakes and crop protection

Excellent crop clearance
The brake system is designed in such a way that no brake components, like brake arms or cylinders, are lower than the main axle.

Underbelly protection
Underbelly crop protection is standard. The shield will protect cables and hoses on the sprayer, and the crop will be protected from corners and edges. The underbelly protection is easily removed which gives good access for service.

Hydraulic suspension

Strong hydraulic cylinders absorb the shock loads instead of transferring them to the boom and tractor. This ensures operator comfort and good application at even higher speeds. 

High comfort level at high driving and spraying speeds. The suspension is adjusted to match tank and boom size from the factory. Suspension does not compromise the clearance of the sprayer.

ParaLift

The HARDI ParaLift ensures high clearance above any crops
The long lift arms allow for very flexible height adjustment, the boom can be adjusted from 15.7 in. to 86.6 in., depending on sprayer wheel combination.

Wide attachment to the boom suspension ensures high performance of the boom
The 3.3 ft. wide ParaLift ensures very stable attachment of the boom.

TWIN FORCE boom from 80, 90, 100 ft., DELTA FORCE 120 - 132 ft. and TERRA FORCE boom have no suspension in the boom center, and here the pushing ParaLift is equipped with suspension. Each of the two ParaLift cylinders is connected to an accumulator with a preloaded pressure corresponding to the boom weight.

Main tank

Very low center of gravity
To make the sprayer as stable as possible the tank is much wider at the bottom. This ensures a low center of gravity.

Liquid is moved forward as the tank is emptied, thereby maintaining weight on the drawbar
This ensures that traction on the tractor is maintained, even when going up slopes with an almost empty tank.

RinseTank

Capacity is 130 gal. on all machines
The same tank is used on all machines providing adequate liquid for both inside and outside cleaning.

Placed on axle for added stability
The RinseTank is typically the last tank to be emptied. By locating it on the rear axle, extra stability is ensured.

Level indicator
The indicator is placed on the front of the sprayer to allow step by step cleaning.
