Overcome the Toughest Terrain and Make Quick Cycles Easier

Valley® Irrigation engineered the high-speed center drive in response to growers who want to reduce or eliminate many of the expenses of applying crop protectants. The Valley X-Tec ®   family of products lets growers apply protectants uniformly and at the proper concentration directly through the pivot.

Speed like this can benefit a wide variety of crops and is ideal for precise application during germination and for cooling your high-value crops in the heat of the day.

Get ready to optimize your machine and your inputs as the investment in an X-Tec high-speed center drive can reduce labor, equipment rentals, and maintenance costs.

Valley Irrigation keeps moving irrigation forward with industry-leading technology. X-Tec center drives give operators the option to move 4 times as fast as a standard pivot 34 RPM drive with the X-Tec 136 or 10 times faster with the X-Tec 343, completing a standard circle in just 90 minutes.

X-Tec Drive Benefits

  • 2x to 10x faster passes – Enable light water applications, ideal during germination or for cooling the crop canopy.
  • Constant move results in less wear on the machine and increased uptime.
  • Reduce labor and costs – Apply crop protectants directly through the pivot.
  • Simplify your operation – Allows operators to quickly move the machine to work in the field.
