Why a Zimmatic lateral move system?

A Zimmatic lateral move system from Hall Irrigation lets you combine maximum irrigation coverage with a uniform watering pattern over your entire field. This combination helps ensure a better yield out of every acre for a higher return on your investment in production inputs.

  • Ideal for conversion from flood irrigation. They are a proven way to get more benefit from less water and to reduce pumping costs.
  • Reduce the yield penalties associated with water logging of crops when using flood irrigation.
  • Manage your irrigation in sync with the weather – reduce the risks of flood damage associated with storms after a flood application.
  • Reduce your labour costs – no more starting siphon tubes!

 

Hose Fed

  • Supplied with water through a large diameter hose attached to a pressurised mainline
  • Pivot and/or towing options for use on adjacent fields for increased coverage area
  • Uses 2 wheel or 4 wheel cart (depending on field size) with 102 mm, 153 mm and 203 mm hose (that’s 4, 6 or 8 inch if your prefer!)

Ditch Fed

  • Can use existing ditch at field edge or one in the centre
  • Depending on ditch type, water is supplied through a floating intake or a floating self cleaning filter screen
  • Only available as a 4 wheel

 

Cart & Power Options

  • Two and four wheel carts are available, depending on system requirements.
  • Power can be supplied by an onboard diesel and generator set (plus onboard pump for ditch fed systems) or by commercial power delivered through a heavy duty, mining type cable. (Please Note :: Cable powered systems in hose fed only).

 

Guidance Systems

  • Zimmatic lateral move irrigation systems can be guided by furrow, above ground cable or buried cable methods.

Pipe Options

  • 6 5/8 inch
  • 8 inch
  • 8 5/8 inch
  • 10 inch
  • Span lengths customised to individual farming systems

Precision Application

Systems are computer designed with:

  • Sprinklers: Rotators, spinners, sprays, LEPA, wobbler or impacts to match desired water application rates.
  • Drops: To minimise water loss due to wind and evaporation.
  • Offsets & Boombacks: To expand application area and minimise wheel tracking.
