Proven Irrigation Equipment Performance - the Valley Center Drive

Only the Valley® center drive can provide you with a long-lasting, reliable drive motor to keep your center pivots and linears running for years to come.

Valley Irrigation is a global leader in providing precision irrigation equipment and irrigation supplies, and the high quality of our product offering extends to right down to its core, the Valley center drive. In fact, our standard speed center drive has the lowest power requirements in the irrigation industry due to its efficient and durable helical gearbox, and its efficient, powerful motor.

Extra-large intermediate gear bearings Assure longer life.
25° tooth angles Provides 40% greater load capacity and wear resistance than other manufacturers’ 14 1/2º tooth angles.
Built-in crop guard over U-joint Prevents crop wrapping in or near oil seals.
Double reduction gearing Requires fewer gears, shafts, and bearings for greater reliability and efficiency.
Stator Can be replaced independent of rotor, and is held in place with corrosion-resistant, stainless steel bolts for easy maintenance.
Valley exclusive coating Applied to internal surfaces to prevent corrosion.
Watertight seal Between housing components.
Finned aluminum housing For cool-running efficiency. Operates at temperatures 20° F (11° C) lower than comparable motors with steel housing because the Valley aluminum housing and fins dissipate heat more effectively. This doubles insulation life and increases motor life.
Case-hardened steel helical gears More teeth meshed at all times for smoother power transmission.
Drain plug Easily accessible, extra large.
