In rectangular fields or other polygonal shapes, usually it is necessary to install several center pivots or part circle pivots to cover the most surface area possible. In those cases, the advantages of a linear system should be considered.
A linear system consists of a self-propelled cart (by electric cable or a generator) that moves along the spans to which it is connected. The supply of water can be obtained through suction from a canal along the system’s path or with pressurized flow through a flexible hose or polyethylene hose.
TYPES OF LINEAR
The perfect system to be used in rectangular fields.
It possesses a four-wheel cart that provides a traction system with greater towing capacity.
The hose connection is centered between the wheels. This allows traction without leverage, distributing the work symmetrically.
The DitchFeed systems capture water from a canal through a suction system.
It’s characterized by its capacity to turn up to 180º from its footing, doubling the surface of irrigation in each direction of the system’s movement.
