Lindsay Introduces New 8 5/8 Inch Pipeline Option

September 2, 2012

(OMAHA, Neb., ) – January 2012—Lindsay Corporation, maker of Zimmatic irrigation systems, announces the addition of an 8 5/8 inch pipe diameter option to its 9500 Series line of pivots.

“We’ve added this new pipe diameter to our product line for increased flexibility and efficiency in cost, machine set-up and operation,” says Tanner Hoffman, Zimmatic product manager. “Lindsay has made the capital investments necessary to produce this popular pipeline size, and we are proud to offer the new 8 5/8 inch diameter pipe to our irrigation customers around the world.”

Initially offered in galvanized steel, the new pipe diameter is available in standard, medium and high clearance tower options and in a variety of span lengths and extensions.

“Incorporation of 8 5/8 inch spans into the Zimmatic 9500 Series product line allows even more flexibility to design a machine that is the perfect fit for each specific grower’s needs. The 8 5/8 inch spans can be used in many different applications to reduce friction loss, lower overall upfront machine costs and provide the span length clearance options needed to match nearly any terrain or field design,” Hoffman says.

With this addition, growers now have access to a total of six different pipe diameters in the 9500 Series: 4 1/2 inch, 5 9/16 inch, 6 5/8 inch, 8 inch, 8 5/8 inch and 10 inch. All Zimmatic 9500 spans, including the new 8 5/8 inch diameter pipeline, are built using heavy wall 11 gauge pipe.

Additional machine options are planned in the coming months.
