A robust and compact machine
The Hydro Boxer 4 x 4 self-propelled sprayer comes equipped with an MWM 4.10 TCA engine and features an EGR exhaust gas recirculation system to reduce emissions of nitrous oxides. With 4 cylinders of 4.3 liters, it uses an aftercooler system and 92.6-kW output at 2200 rpm. The engine configuration meets MAR-I pollutant emission standards and is approved to work with B10 Biodiesel (up to 10% in the mixture). Among the features of the 10 series are individual cylinder heads, wet cylinder liners, ribbed connecting rods and components such as water and oil pumps, in addition to the oil cooler built into the engine block.
Ultra-resistant frame and axles
Designed in a single structure, the frame of the Hydro Boxer 4 x 4 self-propelled sprayer is formed by tubular steel beams, joined by high-strength welding metals and several reinforcement points to improve safety and durability in uneven terrain. Its low weight also favors less soil compaction. In addition, the axles and legs are also reinforced to withstand the most diverse operating conditions, terrain, drive and steering systems, as well as making the connection between the tires and the frame. In addition, the Boxer has a 2.5 meter fixed track width adjustment axis, with adjustable option from 2.5 to 3.3 meters.
The Hydro Boxer self-propelled sprayer has a 4 x 4 hydrostatic transmission, with a dual pump that transforms output into oil flow. The first pump supplies the front motors and the second the rear motors. This system provides better control of the torque distribution on the wheels, avoiding skidding. In addition, the Hydro Boxer uses Danfoss KC 45 wheel motors which, in combination with the transmission, provide the power required to do the job. Add to this the fact that the 11 HPA planetary gearboxes work with a wide range of gear reductions, are resistant, compact in size and light in weight. Finally, operating a machine with hydrostatic transmission system is easier because, apart from offering greater comfort and lower noise level, it increases yield, reduces the cost of operation and maintenance, and also decreases mechanical wear and fuel consumption.
Spraying efficiency with Boxer H
The Boxer H self-propelled sprayer comes equipped with the Isoview display: technology featuring an easy-to-use intuitive interface, which starts a job in just three clicks, bringing intelligence to production without increasing complexity. This onboard controller comes with integrated GPS and autopilot to guide the operator, making it possible to significantly reduce the amount of inputs, avoiding overlap during application. In addition, Isoview controls the spraying and the 7 sections, working with terrain compensation and electronic sensors to prevent deviations due to unevenness, holes or ditches. Another feature that stands out in this system is the Dedo-Duro software, which comes pre-installed in the equipment and allows for maps and work reports on your personal computer, tablet or smartphone!
Spraying boom and frame
The Hydro Boxer 4 x 4 features 25 or 27 meter booms that ensure great operational capacity. In addition, its central frame has a spring-damping system which, by means of adjustment, ensures minimal oscillation. The preload on the springs must be adjusted: the higher the preload, the more rigid the mechanism will be. The Boxer H self-propelled sprayer also has several hydraulic accumulators to cushion the dynamic movements that the spraying booms and frame components undergo. These accumulators are used in the extending and retracting cylinders, in the frame height and geometry cylinders.
Spraying control and pump
The Hydro Boxer 4 x 4 self-propelled sprayer uses a centrifugal pump with electronic flow control to ensure uniform pressure in the system. In order to optimize its service life, it can be made from cast iron or stainless steel and is driven by a hydraulic motor with 170 L/min at 2 bar capacity at the tip of the nozzle. Also, the mechanical seal on the pump is standard silicon carbide. Spraying is controlled by an electronic controller that offers the best performance, maintaining pressure in the nozzles even with speed variations. Electric valves are responsible for actuating spraying in the 7 sections.
Duo React System
Optional in the Hydro Boxer self-propelled sprayer, Duo React consists of a double-nozzle pneumatic valve body and a compact control system. This system allows for increasing yield, because the operator can vary the speed range, maintaining the same droplet aspect, automatically alternating nozzles based on pressure and droplet size. It also optimizes operating performance, as the operator doesn’t need to leave the cab to change nozzles when switching the application rate: a simple console performs automatic or manual switching between nozzle A, nozzle B or nozzles A+B.
Premium features built into all machines
Access ladder and chemical inductor
The hydraulically actuated front ladder provides comfort and convenience to the operator: with a simple touch of the pedal, it raises or lowers. The chemical inductor in turn has 30 liter capacity and a built-in lifting handle. It is made from polyethylene and uses a Venturi suction system integrated with the drain valve for reduced overall dimensions. In addition, its profile and surface shape are optimized to facilitate rinsing and to prevent chemical stagnation. The Hydro Boxer also has a rotating nozzle for cleaning chemical tanks and a special mixing nozzle, suitable for both granular and powder products.
The Hydro Boxer 4 x 4 self-propelled sprayer is equipped with an active pneumatic suspension system and leveling valves that identify soil unevenness and act to fill or empty the air in the pneumatic cushions. This circuit provides optimal operator comfort and minimal oscillation transfer to the booms. In addition, pneumatic suspension increases tire life, reduces fuel consumption and entails a lower maintenance cost, as there are no spring breaks or lubrication points. Furthermore, replacements are easier, load distribution between axle units is balanced and the total dead weight is reduced.
Cab and wheel set
Designed to provide ergonomics and operator safety, the Hydro Boxer 4 x 4 self-propelled sprayer’s cab has a large window area, offering a privileged view of the work space, including the main tank and spraying booms. It also has cooling and ventilation systems that ensure greater comfort. As for the wheel set, the Boxer comes equipped with 12.4 x 36 diagonal tires, with 12 plies (standard), or IF 320/85 R36 radial tires (optional), ensuring longer service life and flotation, as well as less soil compaction. Furthermore, the farmer has the possibility of purchasing the Boxer with a tubular or rounded row opener to reduce crop crushing during operation.
