BENDER30™ & BENDER160™

The Valley Bender is an option added to your center pivot that basically "wraps" it around whatever is in its way: a tree line, a fence, a dairy, or other obstruction. Two barriers are installed by your local Valley dealer on either side of the area that you want to irrigate around. When the pivot reaches the first barrier, the span tower that has the Bender installed, also known as the "bending" tower, keeps irrigating while the rest of the pivot stops. When the "bending" tower reaches the second barrier, it auto-reverses until it becomes flush with the stopped portion of the pivot, which will then resume irrigating in normal fashion. 

•    Bends up to 30 degrees in either or both directions
•    Available on 7000 series and 8000 series center pivots
•    Span diameter options — 6", 6 5/8", 8 5/8", 10" 
•    Utilizes existing structural components — easy to retrofit without required structural change
•    Available with PolySpan® — for use with corrosive water
•    Bends automatically — no operator input required

•    Bends up to 160 degrees in either or both directions
•    Available on 7000 series and 8000 series center pivots
•    Span diameter options — 6", 6 5/8"
•    Can bend in forward and reverse operation
•    Utilizes custom structural components
•    Integrated end gun and auxiliary controls for bending mode
•    Patent-pending

 

DropSpan™

DropSpan™The Valley DropSpan is an option available for both center pivots and linears that literally "drops" one or more of your machine's spans to continue irrigating around a tree line, a fence, a dairy, or other obstruction. You can easily detach the spans from the rest of the machine in less than 15 minutes without tools, gaining you extra land to irrigate in little time! Two barriers are installed by your local Valley dealer on either side of the area that you want to irrigate around. When the pivot or linear reaches the first barrier, the machine stops so that you can detach the towers with the DropSpan. Once the spans have been "dropped," the rest of the pivot or linear continues to irrigate your field. When the machine reaches the second barrier, it auto-reverses until it becomes flush with the stopped portion of the pivot or linear, which will then resume irrigating in normal fashion after the towers with the DropSpan have been reattached.
•    Spans can be dropped or reattached by one person, without tools, in less than 15 minutes!
•    Multiple DropSpans can be installed on one center pivot or linear
•    Available on 7000 series and 8000 series center pivots
•    Available on linears
•    Simple winch and batten leg system to drop and reattach outer spans
•    Simple electrical connector manages span cable and control logic — no re-wiring needed
•    Optional second end gun
