The centre on the non towable and the heavy duty mobile pivot are manufacture as a 4 legs and 3 legs mobile centre. The Kimberley pivot mobile pivot lets you spread the cost of the system over more hectors, making automated irrigation more affordable than ever. The tripod is made to irrigate fields from 22 ha and more the heavy duty unit is towed from one field to another by a wheel mounted same (same as on the towers) tripod point.
The 4 leg centre is made from 80 x 80 x 6mm angle iron with 50 x 50 x 6 angle cross bracings available in a 165mm and 219mm centre feed pivot points.
Each Tower consists of 2 standard wheel gearbox ratios (Ratio of 50:1) and (2 x 8, 5" x 16") pivot tyres. The Centre drive gearbox is also standard power saver with a ratio of 40:1 water driven pivot use a standard 30:1 C " Face type gearbox with a spindle.
Multi Directional Flex joint:
Not only flexes up and down and back and forth, it can also twist to accommodate tension stresses, common on rough ground. This flexibility is a principal reason why the Kimberley pivot will operate on slopes of up to 30%. The flex joint is designed to eliminate costly replacement and maintenance; it is not subject to wear, common with expensive metal to metal couplings. If a hose must be replaced, it is a simple, low cost operation.
The Truss rods are designed to absorb tension and provide maximum support for the pipeline. Unlike most, the
Kimberley pivot truss rods are slotted and welded on all 4 sides for maximum strength to assure rigid strong spans.
We widened the distance between the truss rods thereby lowering the machine's overall centre of gravity.
As all parts are manufactured in South Africa, they are readily available from our factory in Kimberley as well as from our distributors. Electrical components are also locally manufactured and always available.
