Valley® Flotation & Traction
Coaches rely on their equipment manager to outfit the team with an athletic shoe designed to increase traction and secure footing for a specific field surface or condition. The same may be said of your Valley® dealer. After analyzing your field, MaKen Irrigation will recommend the flotation or traction option most effective in conquering the primary threat of the opposing field – ruts.
Ruts form as pivots travel down the same track numerous times. Soil type, terrain, and irrigation practices are the most common factors affecting the severity of rut formation in any given field.
Extensive research and in-field trials led by the world-class team of Valley engineers were the inspiration behind the design of several drive unit flotation and traction options – each customized to maximize performance and minimize downtime.
