Getting tired of changing the oil in your hydraulically driven center pivot? Experience the benefits of electric drive technology with a conversion solution from your local Valley® dealer! Convert your pivot to a reliable electric drive with durable Valley parts and irrigation supplies – drive train, alignment, pivot controls, and low-pressure sprinkler packages, all which provide you convenience and versatility while reducing labor and energy costs.
Did you know that a Valley electric drive conversion can save you up to 75% in energy costs (depending on speed)? Plus, with the additional protection of the Valley extensive limited warranty, along with exceptional dealer service and support, the decision to convert your oil hydraulic center pivot to an electric drive has never been so easy.
Electric drive center pivots can use up to 75% less energy* (depending on speed) than your oil hydraulic pivot. The oil hydraulic pumping unit must provide a constant 1,750 - 1,800 PSI operating pressure at all times, no matter at what speed. Electric drive center pivots provide power to the machine only when needed, reducing the overall energy costs.
* Results may vary based on model types, soil conditions, terrain, and speed.
There are many reasons why more than 95% of the world’s center pivots are electric drive machines. Electricity is an everyday form of power. Enjoy the benefits of electric drive technology with a conversion solution from your local Valley dealer: Electric drive center pivots can use up to 75% less energy than oil hydraulically driven machines.
Savings to run electric versus hydraulic drive center pivots can range from $6,000 - $25,000** when compounded at 6% over 15 years (depending on speed, length, hours, and other operating conditions).
Many oil hydraulic drive machines require high pivot water pressures of 50 PSI or more just to operate the end gun efficiently without a booster pump.
Savings from lowering your sprinkler operating pressure by 20 - 40 PSI can range from $600 - $3,500** per year (depending on energy type and cost, water flow rate, and other operating conditions).
Efficient electric drive conversions from Valley are specifically engineered for your oil hydraulic machine, providing you with a solution that looks good and performs under tough conditions.
