FastPass technology enables Valley Irrigation's X-Tec Center Drive Motor to operate at up to twice the speed of ordinary center drive motors. The new option is configured similarly to how high-speed center drive motors can be combined with standard speed motors. The hybrid X-Tec pivot configuration uses the high-speed Valley center drive motors on the inner drive units and X-Tec drives on the outer drive units.

The X-Tec Drive offers full torque capabilities at any speed, making it ideal for tough terrain and low spots; consistent, precision alignment; electronic braking; lasting durability; soft starts, resulting in smooth acceleration and the ability for frequent, light application of water to cool the crop canopy, maintain surface moisture during germination and prevent wind erosion.

X-Tec is an ideal solution for sensitive, high-value commodity crops such as potatoes, carrots, onions and alfalfa.
