HARDI Self-Propelled Sprayers will be Sold Direct in WA
In a move that will save W.A. farmers tens of thousands of dollars, HARDI Australia has announced that it will in future sell its self-propelled sprayers direct in that state.
This means primary producers will be able to negotiate the very best deal directly with HARDI’s Western Australian Territory Manager, Tom Slatyer.
Originally from a farm in Cowaramup, Mr Slatyer has lived and breathed W.A. agriculture his whole life – including four years working for ag equipment dealer McIntosh&Son in Wongan Hills. He says HARDI’s factory direct option as a real game-changer.
“I’ve helped a lot of farmers test drive these HARDI sprayers over the past few years,” he says, “ and they’ve all come away very impressed by the performance.”
“I want to make it easier for those guys to put a top sprayer in their shed,” he adds.
Tom emphasises that despite selling direct, HARDI will support its SPs with a comprehensive network of parts and service partners. “The game is changing here in WA. Some very capable Service Technicians have set up on their own and are now part of a new model that is emerging in the state’s Ag Machinery supply chain. We believe this new model will deliver more value to farmers and we are taking the plunge”.
“Our largest self-propelled machine is the HARDI RUBICON which has a main tank capacity of up to 9,000 litres and aluminium boom options of up to 54 metres,” he said. “That’s an acre-eating combination that can really boost a grower’s productivity – especially on the big properties that dominate our wheatbelt.”
Both RUBICON 9000 & 6500 and the rear boom mounted SARITOR 62 ACTIVE are available with an advanced nozzle management technology called H-SELECT. This multi-tier system automatically controls droplet size and application rate. Importantly, H-Select offers “curve control” which is these days on most sprayer shopping lists.
SARITOR 62 ACTIVE gives farmers the benefits of HARDI’s AutoTerrain technology, which proactively manages boom height to deliver what is arguably the industry’s best boom ride. This is especially valuable for accurately maintaining a lower boom height – to ensure nozzles are working at the correct height and reduce drift in windy conditions. It also assists to eliminate the risk of ground strikes on crab hole country.
“We don’t just roll our sprayers out of a container and onto farm,” says Tom. “Each one is effectively built to order in our Adelaide factory. So customers won’t just save money by dealing with us directly, they can also get their new machine built exactly as they want it.”
Having that build expertise locally also means HARDI can provide unmatched support, including parts replacement and technical expertise from specialists at the factory as well as through a network of local technicians.
