The Valley brand is a world leader in Center Pivot and Linear Move irrigators, specialist machines that complement Briggs’ linear booms and its other irrigation systems, including hosereels and Roto Rainer self travelling irrigators.
The Valley brand is owned by Valmont Industries, the world’s largest producer of mechanised irrigation systems, operating in over 100 countries.
Valley Center Pivot & Linear Move irrigators are ideal for growers who need to routinely irrigate large areas with minimum manpower.
In the UK, a single machine might typically irrigate around 60 - 150 acres with the added benefits of very high water application uniformity and low pumping costs due to the low pressure requirements of the machine.
Valmont is based in Nebraska USA and has been manufacturing Center Pivot irrigators since 1954. The company has manufacturing facilities around the world and estimates its equipment irrigates 17 million acres annually.
On their introduction to the UK in 1980, Valley irrigators were distributed and maintained by E Rand and Sons of Great Blakenham, near Ipswich. Briggs Irrigation and Rand and Sons now work together to maintain existing units, making best use of the experience and expertise in both companies.
