The new Alpha evo is the latest generation of high performance self-propelled sprayers from the HARDI Group. New for the Alpha evo are the Intelligent features first seen on the Commander range. The overall layout of the machine is designed with the operator in mind, which leads to more efficient and comfortable operation of the day to day spraying tasks.
The HARDI TWIN sprayer can give you up to 50% more hours available for spraying. Spray drift from conventional sprayers can be so large that the operator has to stop before having the spray job done. With efficient drift control it is much easier for the operator to be able to spray the entire field with optimal timing. Under most conditions the farmers get up to twice as many hours for a safe and efficient spray job with the TWIN sprayer compared to conventional spraying.
With HARDI TWIN you can spray under sub-optimal wind conditions and still get an optimal result. In most cases wind and rain are the limiting factors for spraying. Rain is difficult to handle - but with the HARDI TWIN sprayer you can spray under windy conditions - and by that increase the number of hours available for optimal plant protection.
The normal guide-line for conventional sprayers is that you have to stop spraying if the wind speed is higher than 4 m/s. This makes perfect sense if you look in the graph below. At 1.5 and 3 m/s the amount of drift is relatively constant, but when the wind gets higher than the 4 m/s the drift curve rapidly increases.
With the HARDI TWIN sprayer this development in the drift curve seems to be delayed - and at 8 m/s there is not more drift than with 1.5 and 3 m/s for the conventional. It is therefore possible to spray at much higher wind speeds and still get the same good result.
