The Industry Leader
NAVIGATOR is synonymous with high quality and design which supports functionality. These properties secure the value and ease of use found in the NAVIGATOR. The middle range capacities of 800, 1000, 1200 & 1600 gallons does not prevent this series of trailer sprayer from providing the same benefits and capabilities of today’s most sophisticated farm implements. A large range of high quality features greatly benefits the farmer, making the NAVIGATOR the obvious choice.
Chassis: The heavy-duty NAVIGATOR chassis and axles are designed for high-speed driving under the most demanding field and road conditions. The robust NAVIGATOR frame is made of high-tensile steel and is ready to meet the tough demands of the professional farmer. The concept gives the best compromise between excellent clearance and low center of gravity.
Low center of gravity- The entire NAVIGATOR design has the lowest possible center of gravity without compromising clearance under the sprayer.
Unique design with long drawbar- The long drawbar is one straight line from the coupling point to the axle. Being bolted underneath the frame, it ensures good driving stability and absorbs the up-and-down forces at high-speed driving.
Perfect clearance- The unique design of axle and frame ensures excellent crop clearance, reducing crop damages to the absolute minimum. Nothing is lower than the axle and drawbar.
SmoothRide- The optional SmoothRide suspension system is uncomplicated and reliable. The long-lasting polypropylene dampers require little to no service. The suspension provides a better ride of the sprayer, ensuring higher capacity and comfort.
EAGLE Boom- The 45 - 120 ft EAGLE boom is designed for heavy duty use under the most demanding conditions. The boom is well-known around the world for its performance under the hardest conditions. The EAGLE boom is suspended on two large coil springs with shock absorbers. The horizontal movements are controlled by a heavy-duty trapeze system that allows spraying and turning at very high working speeds.
EAGLE DualFold SPC- HARDI has expanded the line of EAGLE booms with the addition of the 90’-60’ and 120’-90’ DualFold boom sizes. Heavy dual spring suspension with dual shock absorbers on
the 120’ are designed to smooth the boom performance in the roughest no-till fields. Maintenance is kept simple with the EAGLE seven point suspension and easy adjustments for in field performance.
Liquid system- The liquid system of the NAVIGATOR has large dimensions in all valves, tubes and filters. The liquid system is dimensioned to handle large volumes of liquid with minimum pressure loss.
SmartValve- All primary functions needed for filling or cleaning the sprayer are built into two handles located in the center of the working zone. The logically placed handles with easy to read icons make the system very easy to operate. The ergonomic design and 4 position SmartValve saves time when changing between settings.
Pump- The NAVIGATOR liquid system is driven by the grease-lubricated HARDI diaphragm pump or the Ace centrifugal pump. With the diaphragm pump the diaphragms separate the liquid from the vital
parts of the pump such as its bearings and crankshaft, ensuring reliable and durable operation.
HARDI diaphragm pump features:
• Able to run dry without damage
• Easy to service.
• Grease-lubricated crankcase
TurboFiller- The HARDI TurboFiller is developed to handle large quantities of powders and liquids. Its high capacity is a result of high vacuum combined with rotation of the liquid forced by the TurboDeflector placed in the bottom of the hopper. Changing from transport to easy operation height (37.5”) is made simple by the means of a spring-loaded bracket with automatic locking in transport
or working height. A multifunctional 3-valve operating unit and a cleaning wand make the chemical filling easy and efficient. The cleaning of containers and the TurboFiller itself is managed by a rotating
EasyClean filter- The EasyClean filter is a high capacity suction filter. The condition of the filter can be constantly monitored via a SafeSpray vacuum gauge. This ensures that the filter is cleaned when needed and only when needed. When cleaning the filter, all you have to do is to twist the lid 90°. This will close a main tank valve in the bottom of the filter and open the filter for inspection.
CycloneFilter- The CycloneFilter at the pressure side is a unique self-cleaning filter with a high-speed cyclone action that increases the cleaning capacity of the filter significantly. In addition, the CycloneFilter has a unique boost function allowing the filter to be flushed when needed.
