J&R McCrackens Most Popular Irrigators:



Whether it’s said over coffee at their favorite diner or at the dinner table, Valley® growers call the 8000 series center pivot the “Cadillac” of the pivot industry. It doesn’t matter if your field is large or small, you can rely on our 8000 series pivot to help you manage your farming operation and give you something positive to talk about.

New: Valley is offering new pivot point riser and lower elbow options. Now you have the option to integrate a Seametrics Flowmeter or Nelson Valve into the riser pipe, helping you meet regulatory or management needs in a compact installation. And, you can also choose a Clemons filter option instead of a lower elbow to ensure debris in your irrigation water doesn’t plug your sprinklers, giving you consistent water application throughout the growing season.
