Easy to use. Precise. Economical.


The BAUER CENTERSTAR 9000 is a prime example of a fully auto­mat­ed irri­ga­tion system that will con­sis­tent­ly do its job without any help. The CENTERSTAR con­sists of a sta­tion­ary central tower with an also sta­tion­ary power and water supply. The full poten­tial of the CENTERSTAR is real­ized on square fields without obsta­cles. In this sce­nario, the system offers impres­sive­ly low pur­chase costs with maximum space utilization.

The pivot systems from BAUER are con­sid­ered the most robust and durable on the market. They are also known for stand­ing up to the fiercest winds. This is due in part to their low center of gravity, which con­sid­er­ably increas­es their sta­bil­i­ty. Plus, the frame con­struc­tion uses gen­er­ous­ly dimen­sioned pro­files to make it heavier and more stable. The result is an absolute­ly solid frame struc­ture that is immune to tor­sion­al bending. A BAUER pivot always keeps every­thing in balance.


  • Max­i­miz­ing the irri­gat­ed area in square fields
  • Fully auto­mat­ic func­tion reduces labour input and costs to a minimum
  • Gentle pre­cip­i­ta­tion, which does not damage crops
  • Low pres­sure system with low energy consumption
  • High irri­ga­tion effi­cien­cy due to water appli­ca­tion close to the ground
  • Reli­able high yield even in dry periods
  • Long life­time
  • Smar­tRain App-ready for modern irri­ga­tion management

Greater sta­bil­i­ty

Cen­ter­star drive tower

  • Broad based construction
  • Optimal power input
  • Large-dimen­sion drive tower bracing angle 100x75mm
  • The wide wheel base of 4.3m (stan­dard) and 5.2m guar­an­tees a high level of sta­bil­i­ty, even on rough terrain and in strong winds
  • 2 con­struc­tion heights of 4.2 m (stan­dard) and 5.0m for optimal adap­ta­tion to dif­fer­ent crops
  • Towable — high level of flex­i­bil­i­ty and adap­ta­tion to crop rotation
Precise and reliable

Tower cou­pling

The sturdy drive tower cou­pling, free from play, with ball and socket per­fect­ly com­pen­sates for extreme slopes. Mounted on the outside of the pipe, it does not restrict the cross-section of the main­line pipe, thereby ensur­ing optimum water flow without pres­sure loss. The weather, UV and ozone-resis­tant hose collar facil­i­tates large angles.

Align­ment control

BAUER is the only man­u­fac­tur­er to offer a control lever that is mounted direct­ly above the swivel point of the flex­i­ble joint. Any torsion in the pipe has no influ­ence on the control; the entire system is kept stress-free. Optimum adjust­ment of switch­ing brack­ets with pre­ci­sion bear­ings of the control cams ensures precise move­ment trans­mis­sion. Precise drive tower control system leads to a long product lifespan.

Highest pre­ci­sion for more than 12 towers

Pre­ci­sion control

The pre­ci­sion control for extreme pre­ci­sion of linear and Cen­ter­lin­er systems and systems with more than 12 drive towers. The angles between the drive towers are trans­mit­ted by means of control cables, counter-bal­anc­ing any torsion in the steel structure.
