    Mobile Long Reach Irrigation 

    Our Long Reach Irrigator (LRI) is a unique portable watering system – LRI25 & 50 are automatic, 12V Battery Operated, mobile watering systems that provide a means of watering large areas quickly and efficiently.

    Sports fields and pitches benefit from LRIs as the turfed areas are usually so vast it is difficult to keep them suitably watered without an irrigation system of some kind.

    To attempt this job without an effective irrigation system could take days to be done correctly, but with an LRI it can be achieved in a couple of hours or less depending on the size of the area.

    If you do not have access to a water source with adequate pressure, we can assist with the design and installation of a tank and pump to suit your requirements.

    All our football field sprinkler systems are supplied at a highly competitive price and offer significant savings over other pitch irrigation systems. To find out more and get up-to-date prices please get in touch or fill out the form below to request a callback


      Testimonial from Crystal Palace Football Club

      We are passionate at being able to provide the most suitable and best results for our clients, and we are thrilled when we receive great feedback, Crystal Palace Football Club required a system to help maintain their football grounds, and here is what their Head Groundsman had to say:

      “We use our Long Reach Irrigators all the time. They are particularly good if you leave them on overnight. Out portable LRIs cover such a wide area and give the perfect sprinkling, so they don’t puddle up.

      The other benefit is the long reach, which you can adapt to suit the area you need watered. It is particularly good before training sessions or matches when we need to lightly water the whole pitch in a very short time – the LRIs only take one hour to water the whole pitch whereas ordinary travelling sprinklers take 3 hours.”

      Mark Perrin, Head Groundsman, Crystal Palace Football Club

      Other Applications 

      In addition to irrigation, the LRI has a number of other uses including dust suppression at equestrian centres / riding schools and quarries & mining sites. It can also be used for livestock cooling on farms.

      Whatever application you require an irrigation system for, it will become integral to your maintenance process, as it enables you to uphold the quality and performance of any surface, which is crucial not only for the ground itself but for people using the surface as well.
