ProRain reel irrigator

Widening the choice of reel irrigators, the Bauer ProRain unit comes in two sizes to cover many of the popular hose configurations preferred by UK growers and can be quickly adapted to cover a range of flow rates and rain gun sizes.

Key features of the new reel irrigator include a self-loading rain gun trolley for rapid moves, a hydraulic stabiliser leg operation, optional hydraulic turntable rotation and a fully galvanised finish for corrosion protection.

The design of the ProRain is based on retraction forces that are lower than those of the Bauer Rainstar but still higher than competitors. The drive unit, consisting of a water turbine/gearbox combination, provides sufficient power to cover the performance range for different application rates.

Changing injection cones for various water flows is a one-man task. Prices start at around £18,300 + VAT.
