Linear Move On-site

Thanks to Hugh and Sharon Ritchie the MicroFarm now has a linear move irrigator.

The Ritchies replaced the original linear at Drumpeel, and after Hugh made some necessary adjustments, arrived with a truck and trailer carrying a single span linear and a Manitou to put it up with.

Progress Day 1

We followed progress on Day 1, which saw the basic structure erected and the power plant in place.

The next stage is filling the hydraulics, connecting the electrics, and sorting out the plumbing. Rather than use the full span pipe, we intend to carry an under-slung lateral to supply 11 nozzles. We will only be pumping about 4.7 L/s.

And we need to find some wheels. . . .
