The Single Span Engine Drive from Valley can be operated on slopes of up to 10 percent. Mounted directly to the pivot’s base beam, the engine drive operates in forward and reverse modes for maximum flexibility in crop management. No tools are needed because a simple over-center lever allows you to quickly switch the belt direction to run in reverse.

Equipped with a reliable Honda 5.5 horsepower engine, the unit is enclosed for weather protection and can use an auxiliary 19 gallon fuel tank option for extended operation between refills. With standard speed pulleys, the machine can complete a circle in four to nine hours, depending on tire size and engine speed. The high speed pulley option can cover your acreage in half that time. The system can also be moved to different field locations using the optional skid two or four wheel EZ tow.
