Our irrigators are powered by a powerful electric start diesel motor that only uses 1/3 litre diesel per hour, simple to operate and cheap to run. We design our irrigators to the farmer's requirements and specifications.

There is very little water wastage or run off as we use the latest in spray technology to deliver the water where it needs to go - right down deep into the soil.

Boom irrigators offer 24 hour operation without wind limitations. With the added option of our hydraulic control turntable - irrigating can become a one-man operation.

ALL Upton Model irrigators operate with all the benefits of very low discharge pressure

  • Significantly lower pumping costs
  • Much reduced capital input in new installations
  • Smaller pumping plant & lower class pipe requirements
  • Gentle watering pattern - suits seedlings & other delicate crops
  • Ideal for fertigation
  • Not effected by wind

Upton Self-Propelled Travelling Boom Irrigators

The Upton self-propelled boom irrigator is a fully galvanized, versitile machine that is suitable to water both tall and short crops. In many instances our booms offer a better solution to irrigation problems than central pivots because the machines can be easily moved around the farm from paddock to paddock, they are able to straddle most crops without causing any damage and they do not have problems with awkward corners which miss out on being watered. Plus another advantage of our boom irrigator, compared to traveling big guns, is the lower pressure needed to operate them along with the lack of problems with wind.
