The RAPTOR Hydro is a multifunctional carrier, which is possible to use all the year round thanks to a wide range of adapters. The RAPTOR Hydro is first of all designed to fit to the hands perfectly and to be comfortable for the user, ergonomics and well-balancing of the machine were the main priorities while developing this machine. The Raptor Hydro is equipped with a powerful four-stroke KOHLER COMMAND PRO 224 engine, a hydrostatic gearbox with the automatic differential lock and a NORAM-VARI centrifugal clutch and brake.
The KOHLER COMMAND PRO CV224 engine, which powers the RAPTOR Hydro carrier, is above all characterized by a high torque, a cast-iron cylinder sleeve, an oil pump and filter and also by a professional force feed lubrication. A four-stage cyclonic air filter ensures input of clean air to the suction, which is a great advantage while cutting long grass, hay tedding and while using a sweeping brush. These features will be definitely appreciated especially by technical experts.
The Raptor Hydro carrier copes with all kinds of operations concerning the grass maintenance and transport of needed material. It is possible to attach a drum mower or a mulcher, a hay tedder, a sweeping brush, a dozer blade or to connect a seat or a trailer.
The change of adapters is very easy and last few minutes.
The machine design, its toughness, balancing and lifetime is defined by the tough pressed chassis, which was designed using the latest 3D SOLIDWORKS technologies. It brought the elements of the automotive field to the production of the small garden machinery.
The main advantage of the hydrostatic gearbox is the continuous change of gear and machine direction – both forward and reverse regardless of the engine revolutions. Thus, the machine perfectly adapts the conditions and the walking speed of the operator. The differential in the gearbox enables easy operation and manoeuvrability of the machine. Moreover, is the gearbox equipped with an automatic axle lock, which in case that one wheel stars slipping clamps and transfers the output to both wheels. Thanks to this feature manages the Raptor Hydro to move in a very hard terrain conditions. The fluent start and at the same time quick stop of the accessories drive is ensured by the patented centrifugal clutch with the NORAM-VARI brake. This solution influences the long lifetime of the accessories drive and the operator´s comfort as well. The Raptor Hydro is equipped with an additional tank, which increases the total fuel tank volume to 5,9 litres, what markedly improves its radius and working time with no need to add fuel.
In addition, the operator’s comfort is improved with the continuous height and side handlebar adjustment, ergonomic levers with a low pressure to the hands and air chambers in the grips, which eliminate the microvibrations. For more comfortable work it is possible to connect the trailer with the seat or a separate sprung seat. Better terrain pass ability is ensured by the big 8” wheels with a grass pattern.
In the middle of the year 2022 a fuel pump and new covers of the carburettor gate were installed on the engine. We achieved a maximum usage of both fuel tanks on slopes and in tilt as well, and thus the total fuel tank volume of 5,5 litres. And a robust allover cover of the carburettor gate protect the subtle linkage of the carburettor and the regulator in hard working conditions.
