Significantly less work and diesel
Markus Quidenus is enthusiastic about the considerable savings in working hours and diesel — a more than positive aspect in view of the current fuel price developments. “The fact that the Linestar uses almost two thirds less diesel than a hose reel machine really surprised me. In addition, we save around 20 hours of work when irrigating a plot. Calculated over an entire season, this results in a remarkable sum,” explains Quidenus.
In addition, the linear system is equipped with the GPS-supported application “SmartRain”. Regular live updates keep you informed about the current status of the Linestar. A huge advantage for Markus Quidenus: “One look at the smartphone is enough to know whether the set speed is being maintained, the precipitation is okay or how long the machine still needs to get to the next parking position.
