The cost efficient irrigation unit

compact - efficient - flexible

  • Extraordinary price-performance ratio
  • Highly economical due to low energy required
  • Fully automatic irrigation by computer
  • Operating reliability through use of high-quality components
  • Manufactured by BAUER with the same attention to detail and quality

Hot dip galvanisation

  •  All steel parts are galvanized near our headquarters in Voitsberg
  •  This means optimal corrosion protection for our machine which is reflected in the stable value and long lifespan of our products

PE-pipe production

  • The PE pipe of each hose reel irrigation machine represents a significant proportion of the total cost of the machine. Therefore great care needs to be taken when selecting the right mixture of granulates and special attention is paid to all technical parameters
  •  For years, BAUER has produced PE-pipes for the PRORAIN in-house. By using a special mixture of granulates, BAUER can guarantee the highest and constant quality for a long lifespan at highest loads
  •  Due to the independence and flexibility of our own production, it is possible to adjust the wall-thickness of every single PE-pipe in order to achieve low pressure loss and to save energy

Robust machine supports

  •  An important factor for successful irrigation is that the hose-reel irrigator is anchored firmly to the ground
  •  By developing a special kinematics and an extremely flat angle for the machine supports, the power is directly passed into the center of the machine and is therefore optimally distributed.
  •  The machine is immovably anchored to the ground – even with retraction forces up to 20% higher than those of similar machines of competitors.

Precision chain drive

  • The power transmission for the PE pipe retraction over a large dimensioned pipe reel is achieved with high quality chain and precise, laser-cut chain elements.
  •  Due to the large diameter of the sprocket and many singular chain links, the retraction power is spread optimally over a large area.
  •  By using coated, high-performance chains, a maintenance-free operation and a long lifespan are guaranteed even with high retraction power.

Closed reel core

  • The first layer of the PE pipe is the layer exposed to the highest retraction forces and therefore it is important that no edges or small supporting points damage the PE pipe and eventually reduce its lifespan.
  •  To prevent such wear, each reel core of the PRORAIN drum is completely closed and equipped with a special pipe guard
  •  The first layer of the PE pipe sits on the drum evenly and without distortion. The pipe is gently guided into the right position for each layer.

Level wind

  •  A precise level-wind system is essential for a trouble-free operation. The BAUER level-wind works gently and nearly maintenance-free through a double guided winding mechanism and a precisely driven helically grooved spindle.
  •  Especially at high retraction forces and angular PE-pipe retraction, it is important that the guide rails are supported twice in order to absorb the forces and guide the PE-pipe precisely in the right direction.
  •  This results in a longer lifespan of the PE-pipe and trouble free operation
