Hillston Irrigation Upgrade
In mid 2014 Pivot Irrigation and Pumping was awarded the contract to supply four 1000m Valley Rainger Ditchfeed Irrigators for a large scale farming operation in Hillston, New South Wales. The remote location of this site presented a number of logistical and operational challenges during construction and commisioning.
The extensive experience of Pivot Irrigation in large scale projects meant that despite these challenges all machines were delivered on time and within budget.
These machines are guided by a Trimble GPS reciever coupled with Valleys advanced GPS Guidance Computer, they have on average 2cm RTK accuracy.
The scale of this operation made it an ideal location for a Valley Basestation Telemetry system. Basestation allows the operator to remotely monitor and control all four laterals from anywhere in the world from their mobile device.
