The intelligent field sprayer
Farming practices are constantly changing. Farmers are met with a daily challenge to improve capacity and reduce operating costs. To help you to meet this challenge HARDI has developed the COMMANDER trailed field sprayers.
With the sprayer being the no. 1 used farm equipment – the COMMANDER is designed to meet the demands of the modern professional farmer world-wide – by saving chemicals, reducing driver stress and reducing the environmental impact.
This generation of sprayers is designed to lead the way in capacity, reliability, safety, optimization, ease of operation and precision.
The COMMANDER is a high-end 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.

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.
This revolutionary design merges the benefits from other traditional systems into one high performance system. The HARDI SafeTrack is available on the COMMANDER as an optional.
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 COMMANDER has a WorkZone where all primary functions are placed in an easy to reach position. Everything you need to operate the sprayer is available in this area, and everything is designed to be simple and logical to understand and operate. The large safety locker is placed right over the WorkZone along with the clean water tank.
All primary functions needed to operate the sprayer when filling or cleaning are located in the centre of the WorkZone. The logically placed handles with easy to read icons make the system very easy to operate. This greatly reduces the start-up and operation time of the sprayer.
The liquid system
Fast and reliable
The COMMANDER’s fluid system (DynamicFluid4) employs advanced fluid dynamics and application rate control to deliver fast response and accurate target rate application.
Pressure, flow, pump speed, forward speed, boom sections and application rate are monitored and processed using advanced computations. The DynamicFluid4 processor analyses the spraying data 20 times a second and provides pre-emptive rate control capability, altering the pump speed with pinpoint precision.
The proportional hydraulics used to control the pump speed are highly accurate and smooth but incredibly fast.
The liquid system can be operated from the cabin or from the ground.
The TWIN FORCE boom
Less chemicals, money and environmental impact
The TWIN FORCE boom employs the world’s best application system to maintain control in windy conditions. Using a combination of targeted airflow, angle and speed, the system can reduce drift by up to 80%. Efficient drift control means more spraying days – up from 31 to 76 days in a spring study.
It will also result in better crop penetration, even in dense fields, thereby reducing the consumption of plant protection products and water by up to 30% Taking the reduced re-filling time and the higher driving speed into consideration, the Twin FORCE boom will increase spraying capacity by up to 100%. This will give you the best return on your investment, both on your financial and environmental accounts.
The TWIN FORCE boom is available from 18 m to 36 m.
The DELTA FORCE boom
Compact on the road – wide in the field
The DELTA FORCE boom is made to perform. It is a practical but strong boom designed for productivity and performance. We have optimised weight and strength to produce a large boom for reliable performance at fast spray speeds. Despite its width, the DELTA FORCE boom is only 2.55 m wide when folded up for transport. The boom’s simple yet effective pendulum suspension controls boom movements, while a low centre of gravity ensures perfect boom balance. With just two parameters to adjust (pendulum and dampening), the DELTA FORCE boom is easy to customise and maintain.
The DELTA FORCE boom is available from 24 m to 39 m.
One boom – two spray widths: HARDI’s boom-folding system allows the operator to spray at two different widths by choosing whether to fold out the last section.
