And another.

Centre Pivot irrigator in New Zealand (not sure of the exact location on this one).

Re: Irrigation Gear from New Zealand
The Briggs booms have become very popular, because they suit the smaller operator who may not want the expense of a large centre pivot or linear machine.

They have the advantage over the gun type travellers of not being so susceptible to strong wind, which results in poor coverage / reduced wetted width.

Two rotorainers working at Rokeby, one on cereal, the other on grass or fescue for seed.

Another of a rotorainer, in the distance (looks like it might be watering a flowering brassica seed crop). Looks like a lucerne crop in the foreground.
