The optimal solu­tion for rec­tan­gu­lar areas

The BAUER Linestar

The LINESTAR system 9000 from BAUER is the best irri­ga­tion solu­tion for large rec­tan­gu­lar fields. In con­trast to the pivot, which moves in a circle, linear systems have a central unit that moves lin­ear­ly across the field togeth­er with the tower units. Across the field and back again. A special linear control always keeps the machine on the right track. Perfect align­ment and auto­mat­ic cor­rec­tion of devi­a­tions between the towers are pos­si­ble even on chal­leng­ing terrain. The water is sup­plied via hydrants and a supply hose or from a ditch feed. A gen­er­a­tor system in the central unit ensures a mobile supply of power. The LINESTAR per­forms best in long rec­tan­gu­lar fields, where it can achieve almost 100% space uti­liza­tion. It stands out with lower oper­at­ing costs per hectare com­pared with other forms of irrigation.


  • Optimal area util­i­sa­tion in rec­tan­gu­lar fields (up to 100%)
  • Lower oper­at­ing costs per hectare with oblong, square fields com­pared to the classic Pivot
  • Irri­ga­tion which is gentle to soil and crops
  • Low pres­sure system with low energy consumption
  • High level of irri­ga­tion effi­cien­cy thanks to the ground-level water distribution
  • High level of flex­i­bil­i­ty due to the towing and rota­tion options
  • Stable yield also in dry periods
  • Long product lifespan

Span – trussing

  • Five dif­fer­ent tube diam­e­ters provide a wide appli­ca­tion range (50–600m³/h)
  • Optimum adjust­ment guar­an­tees lowest oper­at­ing costs
  • Only one pipe length (5.85m) for easy assem­bly and transportation
  • Truss rods, diam. 20mm, with high tensile strength and large safety reserves
  • Even arc shape of the truss­ing ensures high degree of stability
  • The 90° arrange­ment of the bracing angle ensures a uniform load dis­tri­b­u­tion in the most dif­fi­cult terrain
  • Crossed drive tower braces for high sta­bil­i­ty on uneven terrain
System 9000 brings more stability

  • 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 all Lines­tar and Cen­ter­lin­er systems (regard­less of the number of spans) and for Cen­ter­star systems with more than 12 drive towers offers utmost accu­ra­cy. The angles between the drive towers are trans­mit­ted by means of control cables, counter-bal­anc­ing any torsion in the steel structure.
