Valley X-Tec: Center Drive Motor

This Center Drive Motor Will Change the Way You Irrigate

The Valley X-Tec delivers the ultimate combination: top performing speed for quick irrigation cycles and dynamic power to take on even the toughest terrain. This new center drive motor combines an advanced DC motor with our patented new alignment system. It features full torque at all speeds, electric braking and a low inertia rotor. Its soft start allows for smooth acceleration of the motor, while its robust design provides long lasting durability.

As a grower, you will be amazed the first time you see your center pivot, equipped with the Valley X-Tec, rumble across the field at up to 136 RPM! In the past, a standard seven-tower machine would take eight hours to make a complete pass around a field. Now, it can be done in four hours. This kind of high-speed irrigation opens up new options for the way you irrigate:

  • Provide a crop cooling pass
  • Reposition a part circle machine for improved watering
  • Make foliar applications of chemicals and fertilizers
  • Keep the ground properly moist during germination

The Valley X-Tec maintains full torque at all speeds, giving it the ability to handle rough terrain, rocks, hills and slopes while maintaining the high-speed irrigation you need.
