Upton Centre Pivots give you more time for less money.
The decision has been made – ‘I need a new centre pivot irrigator’. The most common thought is – How much is this going to cost me? Instead we should be thinking – How much money could I save?
The 2 key factors in saving money are – How long is this system going to last? And how much is this system going to cost me (in both time and money) to operate year in and year out? Only then can you really compare apples with apples.
Upton pivots last longer and cost less to own, we use the very best high strength corrosion resistant materials to ensure you get the long lasting pivot available anywhere in the world. In fact, we have never replaced a single pipe due to corrosion on one of our pivots built with high tensile marine grade aluminium pipe.
Our previous newsletters have shown that a lower operating pressure directly relates to lower running costs. Our smooth bore pipe has significantly less friction than the galvanised pipe used by other manufacturers. When designing a pivot system to suit your individual needs we place a high priority on selecting the best pipe sizes that will lower your running cost and save you money, only then can you continue to save money every day for the life of your pivot irrigation system.
Saving time is something that everyone can agree on. Who wants to be driving around the farm starting and stopping pumps and checking pivots when you could be sitting around the BBQ with family and friends? Simple to use automation is the key to this. A couple of clicks on a smart phone app and you know exactly where your pivot is and how much water is being applied. Starting or stopping pumps is done automatically as the pivot requires them to.
