Valley 5000 – Specifically designed for smaller field production ag

Valley 5000 series Center Pivot

Specifically designed for smaller field production ag

Valley5000series

The 5000 series has been developed to provide a cost effective irrigation solution for smaller fields up to 60 acres. This durable machine was created specifically for production agriculture and comes with the reliability and aftermarket support that only Valley Dealers can provide.

Unique 5000 series specifications:
• 5” diameter pipeline
• Single phase power option  
• 108” outlet spacing
• 820’ maximum machine length
• 112.5’ to 202.5’ span lengths
•1 HP booster pump option

For Shane Darrington of Declo, Idaho, the Valley 5000 series pivot was a simple answer to several problems. “We’re trying to move everything we can to pivots,” he explained. The challenge, however, was finding a cost effective irrigation solution for his smaller fields that didn’t include the heavy cost of labor. “We use hand lines and wheel lines where we don’t have pivots. Having solid set or hand lines in  the corners takes people to do the work. When I put a pivot in a field, it doesn’t make sense to me to put a pivot there if a pipe mover has to go to the field twice a day to manage the equipment in the corners. If I put automation in a certain field, I want to take care of it without the extra vehicle or extra help to do it.”
