For small fields under 10 acres, Valmont Irrigation has introduced its Valley Sing Span Engine Drive, to provide growers precision irrigation solutions in fields where there is no power.
The Honda-powered drive system can be operated on slopes up to 10% and can drive in forward or reverse with the pull of a lever. The 5.5 hp. unit carries a 19-gallon fuel tank for extended operation and can complete a circle in 4 to 9 hours, depending upon tire size and engine speed. An optional high-speed pulley is available to cut that circle time in half.
Valmont Irrigation is making sprinkler irrigation available to growers with small fields where no power exists. The Single Span Engine Drive uses a small gasoline engine to move the sprinkler, and add precision watering to plots that might not have had it in the past.
