The labor cost, hard work and time lost working with hand move and hard hose irrigators can be a thing of the past with T-L Irrigation’s newest innovation in one-span linear irrigation systems, according to the company. The new T-L linear docking system, available from T-L Irrigation dealers, utilizes an innovative pipe valve system, equipped with a series of docking stations, to travel the full length of a field, regardless of the distance.

The heart of the system is a hydraulically powered linear docking unit that follows the water supply mainline, with the aid of a four-wheel guidance dolly. As the docking system approaches each valve on the mainline, guide plates and rollers automatically engage a flange on the valve to lock the unit in place and open the valve to release water.

Designed to accommodate varying field contours and misalignment, the docking system can adjust to variations up to 8” laterally and 20 degrees vertically. After a predetermined period of time at each valve, the docking system disconnects and automatically moves on to the next outlet.
