The Poweroll is a mechanised sprinkler irrigation system that takes the hard work out of moving sprinkler irrigation pipe. Capable of running on all types of soils and irrigating all but tall crops such as corn and sugar cane, Poweroll operates efficiently in square fields and economically in fields as small as 15 acres.
A great advantage of Poweroll is its simplicity. Poweroll provides semi-mechanised irrigation without the use of an electric motor or the need for sophisticated technical support. Driven by a small 6 horspower or 7 horsepower gasoline engine, Poweroll operation is easy to understand and maintain. This simplicity makes Poweroll an ideal choice for the modern technical irrigation of agricultural crops in any location.

The Poweroll is an aluminum sprinkler line mounted on wheels which irrigates in place. A mover unit powered by a small gasoline engine is located in the center of the line. The sprinkler line is connected to a supply or mainline by a flexible hose.
When an irrigation run is completed (usually 8 to 12 hours), the operator turns the line off, carries the connector hose to the next operating position along the mainline, and then walks to the center of the line and starts the mover engine. Maintaining control with hydrostatic transmission, the operator rolls the entire line across the field to the next irrigating position, usually 60 feet. Then the operator returns to the mainline, reconnects the hose, and starts the next irrigation run. The whole moving procedure takes about 20 minutes of work.
When the Poweroll line has covered the entire field, the operator then reverses the line and travels back to the original starting point where the system is ready for the next irrigation cycle.
Wade Rain Poweroll is the leader in mechanized sprinkler irrigation systems because its key features provide smooth operation, low maintenance and high reliability for the owner.
FEATURE: Hydrostatic Transmission
Hydrostatic transmission applies the amount of torque needed to move the load. The operator regulates speed and power to fit the load and contour of the land, maintaining far better control and delivering more working horsepower than is possible with hydraulic units.
Wade Rain Hydrostatic Transmission gives you smooth speed changes -from full forward through zero to full reverse- all with a single control. Pick your speed from less than one foot per minute to 65 feet per minute.
FEATURE: Double Draining Couplers
Wade Rain Poweroll comes with double-draining couplers. Double-draining couplers drain both from the coupler gasket and from the drain valve. This means your wheeline will drain quickly and completely, so that you can move your wheeline to its next position. A typical wheeline with 4 inch pipe takes 8 1/2 minutes to drain while a 5 inch wheeline takes 15 minutes.
Automatically self-draining, the couplers seal when water pressure is turned on and drain when water pressure is turned off. The couplers will not leak due to misalignment of the line, and do not rely on a mechanically compressed gasket. A large drain opening provides fast draining and extra clearance for removal of material clogging the line.
Poweroll gives you double draining all the way around so that the line drains through the gasket 360 degrees and in any position quickly and completely. This means your wheeline will still drain fast even if it is misaligned and the drain valves aren't facing the ground.
FEATURE: Dual Rail Frame
The Wade Rain Poweroll mover unit combines Hydrostatic Transmission with a dual-rail frame over a 14-foot wheel base to enable you to pull out of the mud and wet ground with full power at a slower speed, and then adjust to high speed on dry ground.
The longer frame gives you more power, through increased leverage, to roll the line and keep the mover unit up with the line. The extra long dual-frame of Wade Rain's Poweroll mover has two lock bearings for each tail wheel axle, to assure easy alignment and better tracking. Reduces crop damage and labor.
Male-by-female coupler connection makes line assembly and take down easy. The connection does not rely on clamp pressure to seal the line, and the recessed gasket will not come out when the coupler is disassembled.
Both couplers are available in 4-inch and 5-inch sizes as well as bolt-together and clamp types, and are cast in strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum.
FEATURE: Deep Groove Wheels
|Strong rims with deep corrugations give greater strength with lighter weight. The construction design helps the wheel resist denting in rocky soil or twisting out of shape when axial loads are applied, preventing flattening between the spokes, collapsing or figure-eighting.|
FEATURE: Poweroll Installation
|Poweroll is designed to be simple to operate and maintain. It is also simple to install. No special tools or equipment such as a boom truck are required, meaning that Poweroll can be located in rural areas where minimal infrastructure is needed for successful operation.|
