Internally vented junction box Prevents moisture and contaminants from corroding the wire connections
Crop guard Protects shaft seals for extended life
Integral pinion gear Eliminates coupler, improves reliability
Helical gears More tooth contact than spur gears, providing more torque capacity and quieter operation
Special motor windings for high-torque applications 40% higher operating torque than the competition
  • Large 1 3/16” motor shaft
  • Pinion gear — integral with motor shaft
  • Extra-large intermediate gear bearings — assure longer life
  • 25º tooth angles — provides 40% greater load capacity and wear resistance than other manufacturers’ 14 1/2º  tooth angles

Compare Valley Control Panels

As a grower, you know getting water to your crops when and where it’s needed is key for increased yields. In the past, this meant looking forward to additional costs and worries during peak irrigation times – early morning pivot checks, increased fuel costs from those additional trips to the field, even adding additional labor during the summer months. Some days, it seemed like your irrigation equipment had all the control. It was just a part of the business – until now.

Valley Controls are designed to help you regain control by virtually eliminating unnecessary visits to the field.

Program – With a variety of easy-to-use program options that fit the size and condition of your operation and the pace of your life, you’ll be able to conserve energy and time while greatly improving your yield potential. Use GPS Ready control panels for precise positioning or add GPS Guidance to a Valley Corner or Linear to eliminate buried wire.

Monitor – Monitor all of your equipment with easy-to-use tools that provide an at-a-glance view of your irrigation set-up to ensure more efficient, less stressful irrigation. Complete safety checks and monitor field position.

Control – Our communications options bring advanced technology and give you “control-on-the-go” 24/7 SmartPhone or the Web. Start and stop your irrigation equipment, change direction and application depth, plus much more.

Relax – From monitoring your equipment and accessing alarm indicators to programming your irrigation machines, these options deliver peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re operating at maximum efficiency, saving resources and reducing downtime.

Valley Gearboxes…built to last

The Valley Gearbox is designed and built to work under today’s most demanding growing conditions. There’s a stronger, heavier bull gear…pre-loaded worm gear…and new shaft seals that keep oil in and problems out. A heavy-duty bronze bull gear is an available option for severe applications. Exclusive Valley Gearbox input and output seals help ensure long life for gearbox components. A Valley exclusive, these seals are standard on all new Valley equipment, or retrofit any existing Valley Gearbox.

Largest capacity rubber diaphragm — expands with heat and pressure to minimize water condensation.
Input and output bearings — American made and case hardened to provide the highest quality and load rating available in the industry to insure long trouble-free life.
Worm gear — high strength ductile iron provides significantly longer wear life then steel when combined with a cast iron bull gear.
Tooth design — industry exclusive 250 tooth angle provides 40% longer life and better reliability in tough conditions compared to normal 14 1/20 tooth designs.
Largest bull gear neck and keyway — for strength in critical load-bearing area.
Expansion chamber — cap made of noncorrosive cast aluminum; rubber diaphragm allows oil to expand and contract during operation. Vented cap prevents pressure buildup,
Threaded endcap — allows accurate bearing preload, to increase bearing life. Prevents seal from leaking.
Bull gear — high strength cast iron provides the highest load capacity in the industry and longest life. Optional bronze gear is available for extreme conditions.
Multi-viscosity gearbox oil — exceeds 85w140 GL5 oil for long gear wear under extreme load conditions.
Heaviest gearbox housing — more material in high stress areas. Designed to distribute loads more evenly.
Longest output shaft (steel) — exclusive to Valley gearboxes. Provides extra clearance between the gearbox and wheel flange, reducing mud buildup, resulting in reduced seal damage and extended gearbox life. Special offset rims position the tire back close to the gearbox to minimize bearing loads… another Valley exclusive.

All these factors add up to one thing — the best quality gearbox in the industry, giving you long, trouble-free economical equipment life.
