Spring is a Good Time for Pivot Maintenance


After an especially hard winter in many areas of the country, this spring is a perfect time to check key pivot components and make any necessary repairs or replacements.

Spring is a Good Time for Pivot Maintenance
Omaha, NE, March 26, 2010 --(PR.com)-- No matter what brand of pivot you use, proper maintenance can extend the life and reliability of your pivot and assure a more productive growing season.

After an especially hard winter in many areas of the country, Rick Provaznik, Director of Aftermarket Support at Lindsay, says this spring is a perfect time to check key pivot components and make any necessary repairs or replacements. Provaznik recommends growers, working with their local Zimmatic dealer, perform the following pivot inspection points:

* Lubrication, such as greasing the pivot point and alignment arms
* Drain water from the gearboxes and check the gearbox and center drive motor oil levels
* Drive train and tires, including tire pressure
* Electrical components, including wires to motors
* Sprinkler package efficiency, such as worn or missing sprinklers
* Tower and span bolts
* Pump, chemigation and fertigation systems

“Inspections of your irrigation system can provide peace of mind, increased uptime and ultimately will reduce the cost of ownership,” Provaznik says. “Our Zimmatic dealers offer growers an off-season parts and maintenance program that can help prevent untimely downtime during the critical growing season.”
