Centre Pivots Options - Swing Arm Corner from Reinke

Supplier News

The Reinke Swing Arm Corner (S.A.C.) and Super Swing Arm Corner (S.S.A.C.) are available on all new Reinke (non-tow) systems. Both of these systems allow growers to irrigate more acres without buying more land or purchasing additional systems. Even though S.A.C. and S.S.A.C. are options on all new systems, they can be retrofitted on existing Reinke systems and most competitive systems.

Other Swing Arm Corner Advantages         

Exclusive swing span design uses a simple ball-and-socket hinge, which reduces maintenance and repair costs       
Steering sensor enclosed in PVC for protection and located directly over the wheel for accurate tracking       
Pinpoint accuracy keeps tire track variances less than one-half a wheel width       
Exclusive overhead cantilevered design provides exceptional stability and support to the end boom       
Uniform water application throughout the corner

The S.S.A.C. is a 318-foot swing arm, which has a wetted radius of 408 feet - the longest in the industry.

Energy Saver Package - Reinke’s patented E.S.P. system complements the S.A.C. by maximizing the use of available water via two separate sprinkler packages on the main system. The E.S.P. system also ensures uniform chemical or fertilizer application without changing injector pump settings as the swing arm extends and retracts. The result can be lower energy costs and chemical/fertilizer savings.

GPS - Reinke’s user-friendly, patented GPS guidance option uses advanced satellite technology to precisely guide the Swing Arm Corner system around the field. GPS guidance eliminates the need for the traditional buried wire. With GPS, growers who work with rocky and hard-to-trench soil can experience the benefits of swing arm corner irrigation more conveniently and cost effectively.

In the event field perimeters change, simply enter the new field coordinates into the GPS software, and the corner system’s path is automatically adjusted. Reinke’s GPS technology eliminates lightning damage to buried wire, is virtually maintenance-free, and will save you time and money. The irrigation professionals at your local Reinke dealer handle installation and maintenance of the GPS system.

Accu-Corner - The Accu-Corner system features programmable logic controllers (PLC) that provide exceptional water application control.

When combined with the Reinke E.S.P., the Accu-Corner, S.A.C., and S.S.A.C. can precisely apply one inch of water in about 16 hours less time than comparable corner systems without E.S.P.
