Traditional Mobile Pivot Irrigation System
The traditional mobile pivot, a towable pivot, can only be towed by tractor from one place to another and many people are needed to dissemble the links of the u-joint, take off the drive shaft, release the gear box and turn the wheels by hands. Steel cables are needed to lock the first span and last span. After towing, the wheels have to be turned back to working position and all the links of the u-joint and drive shafts need to be reassembled.
Drivable Mobile Pivot Irrigation System
With Rainfine’s new drivable mobile pivot, however, the process of irrigating becomes much simpler as only one person is needed to work the automatic pivot by using the control panel’s on/off switches. Two wheels on the spans and four wheels on the pivot point can be turned automatically by the motor in the center of the drive tube. The self-propelled pivot can be driven by the motors to any place you want and all the wheels can be turned back to irrigation position after towing.
