MOUNTVIC 454889 1 Center-pivot sprinkler irrigation system either
Center-pivot sprinkler irrigation system
I was not going to post the following photos that I took here in south Florida today.

But now after seeing Marv's post, I taught it might be interesting for some of you to see.

Tony, TC is right they´re very nice photos. D you know what crop are they going to irrigate with that central pivot? I´m glad you like the 9630 pictures I sent you today.

Thoose pivot's are impressive. I think it is unbeliveble that not all of them do as in Marv's pictures - they seems to be soo under-dimensioned, but that is excellent engineering!

Great photos, but it looks more like a pivoting lateral move irrigator with its furrow guidence wheels folded up.

You could be right there 4 Crops.

Also, I though in the last shot that it was an unusual place to be parked next to a power pole & for some reason the sprinklers seem to be flicked back over the top of the boom.

Re: Center-pivot sprinkler irrigation system
why are the wheels of the last section turned 90degrees?

Re: Center-pivot sprinkler irrigation system
T C looks like it might run at right angles to the road, and its pivoted out of the way. A good strong wind can blow sprinklers up there but don't know about all of them.

Re: Center-pivot sprinkler irrigation system
Maybe it is some sort of corner system. I have seen one here (not working though, only stationary).

I too have seen sprinklers blown over, in strong winds, so maybe thats all it is?

Re: Center-pivot sprinkler irrigation system
The wheels are turned so it can pivot, then are turned back the same as the other towers to go in a straight line.

Re: Center-pivot sprinkler irrigation system
4 crops is right, it is a lateral moving irrigation system (linear move).

Victor I am not sure what crop they will be seeding in this field. It likely will be edible beans.
