Reduce Your Downtime and Repair and Labor Costs
Getting a flat tire on your center pivot irrigation equipment is costly and frustrating. Most flat tires aren’t noticed until the irrigation equipment stops, ruining the tire, rim and sometimes the gearbox. And a flat tire means repairs that can cost $1,000 to $1,500 and downtime during the peak irrigation season, when water is critical to maximizing your yields.
In light of these issues, there has been increasing interest among growers in airless tires for irrigation machines. That's why Valley is starting a revolution in irrigation tires.
The Valley? Revolution? Airless Tire features cutting-edge airless tire technology that will eliminate flats. Its well-proven aperture design is similar to tires used on forklifts. Unlike plastic tires that tend to slip on rocky ground and have poor self-cleaning or steel tires that have no give and can quickly corrode in some field conditions, this compliant rubber tire provides cushioning over ridges and other field obstacles to prevent gearbox overloading. Plus, it won’t slip on rocks or other hard objects.
