Flotation and Traction

Minimize Ruts with the Right Irrigation Tires and Irrigation Parts

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, your Valley dealer will recommend the flotation or traction irrigation equipment most effective in conquering the primary threat of the opposing field – ruts.

Ruts form as pivots travel down the identical track numerous times. Soil type, terrain, and irrigation practices are the most common factors affecting the severity of rut formation in any given field.
