Frame

The RANGER chassis is built from high tensile steel to give it exceptional strength with relatively low weight. The design also gives the sprayer the lowest-possible centre of gravity, without compromising clearance. 

The unique arrangement of the axle and frame ensures excellent crop clearance. The drawbar on the tractor and the axle on the sprayer will always be the lowest points on the sprayer.

Overall, the chassis is built to last under the most difficult conditions.

Axle and wheels

Adjustable axle
The RANGER axle is easily adjustable in 5 cm steps so that it will fit in with almost any row spacings. Simple loosen the spacing bolts and move them to the appropriate position.

70 cm crop clearance
The underside of the sprayer is free from portrusions and sharp angles that could damage crops. Clearance from axle to the ground, with standard tyres, is 70 cm.

Brakes

For safer towing on hilly ground and public roads, RANGER is available with 4 different brake options.

Be aware that the road transport laws of the different markets must be followed.

Wherever brakes are required to meet local regualtions, hydraulic brakes without a  handbrake is a competitive solution. 

For sprayers that will only be used on flat farmland, having no brakes is also an option.

Service area

Along with the logical, central arrangement of all filling and cleaning controls, RANGER is designed with safe, easy operation in mind.

The main tank lid is placed very close to the forward inspection platform to allow for easy internal inspections. This and the shape of the tank provides a clear view all around the tank's sides and floor.

The inspection platform itself is placed as low as possible, to make access easy. There is also a strong steel hand rail for safety and convenience.

Main tank

The main tank is much wider at the bottom than the top, to give the sprayer a low centre of gravity especially when full. A sloping floor also moves fluid forward as the tank is emptied, to kep weight on the drawbar.

This helps to manage the tractor's balance and traction, even when going up slopes, and ensure excellent agitation towards the sump.

The tank will drain to completely empty, even on slopes of 10 degrees up or down. Draining the tank can be done by pulling a cord, located at the top of the tank for safety.

Agitation is performed by an adjustable-pressure system, so the operator can enure proper chemical mixing without foaming.

CleanWater Tank

An optional 19 l Clean Water Tank, placed by the work zone, provides a source of water for rinsing off gloves and washing contaminated tools.

RinseTank

The RANGER can be equipped with a complete rinsing system, built around a 250 litre Rinse Tank, to help ensure a fast, safe and easy transition between different chemicals.

This system can be used to flush the the control unit, pump, filters and boom lines after spraying, as well as the isnide of the Main Tank via the tank flush nozzle.

The Rinse Tank is placed on the rear axle for stability, and is filled from the left-hand side of the sprayer.

ParaLift boom centre

The HARDI ParaLift gives superior boom performance compared to traditional H-Frame boom mounts, and needs very little lubrication, adjustment etc.

The long lift arms allow for very flexible height adjustment, and the boom can be adjusted from 50 to 170 cm depending on the tyre and boom combination. Widely-spaced attachment points help stabilise the boom in tilt and yaw, for a much smoother ride over sloping or uneven paddocks.
