PRODUCTS Driving Center Pivot Irrigation

Advanced Development 740-U-AD Gearbox (Assembled in the USA)

The highest performing gearbox of its class in the industry.

This gearbox is purpose built for higher performance and longer life. Although it is overkill for conditions where a Moderate Duty or a 725 gearbox would suffice, many growers like the versatility of the 740-U-AD as it allows for operating in conditions where machines run long hours, wheel ruts may exist, soil can be heavy and terrain is challenging.

The UMC® Advanced Development 740-U-AD features new and improved gearing made from harmonious self-lubricating materials that allow for greatly increased load capacity and reduced gear wear, extending the life of the gearbox. It is designed to support longer hours, longer spans, larger wheels, and heavier towers for use on center pivots and lateral move/ linear irrigation systems.
