Overview

A lower weight and more spraying days

The HARDI HELLIOS features a 3000 l main tank and aluminium booms of up to 30 m. width – and are thus a very cost effective solution for treating small to medium sized fields.

The HELLIOS III is the lightest sprayer in its category, with a unladen weight of just 7,2 tons. This, combined with its 170 HP engine and unique hydromechanical transmission concept allows the machine a very early start of the season operation – as it easily works on soft soil as well as a superb fuel economy.

Chassis

The Chassis of the Hellios has been designed by our inhouse R&D services and is entirely assembled and welded in our premises. By making use of high resistance steel beams of 6mm thickness we ensure the machine has an exceptional mechanical resistance without generating excessive overall weight.
