Valley® X-Tec Center Drive Motor

A Perfect Combination of Speed and Power.

 

The new Valley® X-Tec™ center drive motor delivers the ultimate combination: top-performing speed for high-speed irrigation cycles and dynamic power to take on even the toughest terrains. With Valley FastPass™ technology, you can apply a light application of irrigation to cool crops, gain precision in chemigation and foliar applications, and deliver even greater application uniformity. The patented alignment technology and robust DC motor keep the center pivot moving at a smooth and consistent pace, even over varied terrain.

Valley X-Tec operates at up to twice the speed of a standard, high-speed AC Valley center drive motor. The advanced DC motor design provides constant torque throughout a wide speed range, providing growers with unmatched control and additional options to maximize crop yield.

25° tooth angles Provides 40% greater load capacity and wear resistance than other manufacturers' 14 1/2° 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.
