Zimmatic® center pivots provide farmers worldwide with the best quality, highest performing irrigation systems. Year after year, these systems prove themselves in varying types of terrain, cropping situations and irrigation requirements. This is because of our dedication to service and unique design features including:
The superior construction of our pivot points, support structure and towers provide you the stability where it counts the most. Zimmatic's pivot structural designs include some industry-leading features including our exclusive Uni-Knuckle connector, exclusive split coupler, exclucive formed outlet to eliminate leaking and rust and external collector ring that eliminates water flow restriction. Every component is designed for peak reliability, performance and efficiency.
MAXfield Custom Corner
Why the MAXfield Custom Corner is the "acre maker"
A MAXfield Custom Corner system can minimize acres lost to obstacles such as buildings as well as to irregular borders along ditches and streams. When you use a MAXfield corner system to "square up" a standard 160-acre quarter section (65 ha) you will typically gain about 23 acres (9 ha). You can gain up to 51 acres (20 ha) where the MAXfield system can swing out to pick up both ends of a 240-acre (97-ha) rectangular field.
Zimmatic drivetrain technology continues to set all industry standards for efficiency and longevity. Our center drive and gearbox designs save energy costs while extending the life of the drivetrain. With the high efficiency features of drivetrain design, it's easy to see why our center drives have logged more than 500 million hours of operation.
GrowSmart Control Technology
Zimmatic offers a complete line of advanced GrowSmart irrigation control systems that utilize the most up-to-date computer technology. These systems allow you to remotely program and monitor pivot operation more efficiently, saving you time, labor, water, energy, chemicals and money.
From tire sizes to sprinkler packages, Zimmatic center pivots come equipped with the specific options you need for the most efficient use of your water and time.
MAXfield's durable High-flow joint eliminates the external hoses found on other types of corners. This design greatly reduces the chance of leakage resulting in reduced water friction loss and lower pumping costs. The rugged "H" frame assures robust operation in challenging terrain. Corner reliability is further enhanced by the aggressive steering capability of the steerable tower with wheels which can turn as much as 90°. While the heavy-duty gearbox and variable-speed motor allow the corner arm to move continuously and provides fast speeds for Chemigation and frequent water applications.
Lateral Move Systems
The design of Zimmatic's® lateral move systems allow farmers to irrigate up to 98 percent of a square or rectangular fields, as well as handle "L-shaped" fields. With a choice of water supply and guidance systems, each lateral move system can be customized to individual needs and situations.
The GEOlateral is a pivoting lateral that combines the ease of pivot irrigation with the coverage of lateral systems. It is ideal for converting wheel-line or flood irrigation systems to a more efficient form of irrigation.
Mobile Pivot Systems
Zimmatic® mobile pivots allow growers to bring more acres into production while spreading equipment costs over separate fields. Farmers to irrigate from ten acres up to a full quarter section (4.5 to 65 hectares) and then quickly move to a new location with minimum time and labor. Each mobile pivot--whether a two-, three- or four-wheel design--uses the same heavy-duty drive, collector ring, alignment and structural components found in our fixed pivots and are specially reinforced to handle the stress of movement over uneven terrain. Each system is easily adapted to any towing situation because the hubs on the Zimmatic towable towers swivel 90 degrees.
Why a Mobil pivot system?
-Spread your investment over as many acres as possible
-Save time and labor when compared to solid-set or traveling gun systems
-Apply water to dryland fields to increase yield where a dedicated system may not initially be considered
Versatile for use in fields up to a quarter section, the Zimmatic three-wheel mobile is designed so its wheels can be easily swiveled into towing position through a four-step procedure:
-Use the tractor or manual jack to lift the pivot's wheels slightly off the ground
-Remove cotter pin in each axle and swivel wheels 90 degrees
-Hitch tow bar to tractor
-Disconnect pipeline and tow to next location
