Overcome the Toughest Terrain and Make Quick Cycles Easier

The Valley® X-Tec®  center drive motor delivers the ultimate combination: top-performing speed for quick irrigation cycles and dynamic power to take on the toughest terrain. Featuring Valley FastPass™ technology, you can apply a light application of irrigation to cool crops, improve chemigation and foliar applications, and deliver even greater uniformity. Patented alignment technology and a robust DC motor keep your center pivot moving at a smooth and consistent pace, even over varied terrain.

X-Tec Drive Benefits

  • Ideal during germination: Frequent, light application maintains surface moisture during germination.
  • Keep crops cool: A light mist creates a cooling canopy for high-value crops during the heat of the day.
  • Avoid erosion: Proper moisture stops loss of topsoil and prevents damage to leaves during early-stage crop growth.
  • Simplify crop protection: Apply pesticides and fertilizer, reducing ground and aerial trips, as well as potential cross-contamination.
  • Save time and money: Chemigate and fertigate quicker; avoid over-watering areas that don’t need it; use less water overall; and manage split crops more effectively.

X-Tec Drive Features

  • More efficient: FastPass technology delivers continuous movement, operating up to twice as fast as standard AC motors
  • Full torque: Advanced DC drive delivers full torque at any speed
  • Add strength: Steel gears provide more strength than powdered metal
  • Longer motor life: Aluminum finned housing runs 20° cooler for a longer motor life with no paint to chip, scratch or corrode
  • Less corrosion: Internally vented junction box prevents moisture and contaminants from corroding the wire connections
  • Durable: Crop guard protects shaft seals for extended life
  • Reliable: Integral pinion gear eliminates coupler and improves reliability
  • Quieter operation: Helical gears create more tooth contact than spur gears, providing more torque capacity and quieter operation

X-Tec Drive Specifications

Extra-large intermediate gear bearings Assure longer life
25° tooth angles 40% greater load capacity and wear resistance than other manufacturers’ 14 1/2º tooth angles
Built-in crop guard over U-joint Prevents crop wrapping in or near oil seals
Stator Can be replaced independent of rotor and is held in place with corrosion-resistant, stainless steel bolts for easy maintenance
Valley-exclusive coating Applied to internal surfaces to prevent corrosion
Watertight seal Between housing components.
Finned aluminum housing For cool-running efficiency. Operates at temperatures 20° F (11° C) lower than comparable motors with steel housing because the Valley aluminum housing and fins dissipate heat more effectively. This doubles insulation life and increases motor life.
Case-hardened steel helical gears More teeth meshed at all times for smoother power transmission
Drain Plug Easily accessible and extra large
