Center Pivots

Our center pivot is the most durable, rugged, and long-lasting member of the Zimmatic pivot family. Ideally suited for the roughest terrain, the longest systems and applications that require the most robust pivot point and pipeline structure.

Corner Pivots

With its unique ability to create a custom irrigation program based on your field’s characteristics, the Zimmatic Custom Corner offers increased yields through more uniform application. Experience enhanced reliability, more acres brought under irrigation, time and labour saved, and legendary Zimmatic durability.

Small-Field Pivot

The Zimmatic Small-Field Pivot provides a new option for growers and a new way to cost-effectively irrigate smaller fields up to 24 ha. This pivot offers the same durability and reliability of any Zimmatic pivot at an affordable cost.


If you have a square or rectangular field, a standard lateral irrigation system can bring 98% more of your crop into full production. With a choice of water supply and guidance systems, each system can be customized to your individual needs and situation.

Control Panels

Depending on your unique needs, our range of user-friendly control panels offer you different levels of control, convenience and monitoring of your pivots.


Zimmatic components — including center drives, gearboxes and electrical controls — are the preferred after-market choice when repairing or converting irrigation systems from other manufacturers.



Key Crops

From establishment to ripening, proper irrigation is important at each stage of crop growth. At Zimmatic, we take into account many factors, such as local microclimate, soil type and elevation when designing proper irrigation systems to meet your particular needs when growing key crops like wheat, corn and soybeans.

Tall Crops

You can have all the advantages of a Zimmatic irrigation system for your tall crops whether it is citrus, hazelnuts, coffee, sugar cane or fruit orchards for bananas, papaya, pears or apples. Zimmatic offers medium, high and ultra-high clearance towers to meet your particular crop needs for enhanced, customized irrigation.

Corrosive Water

Zimmatic offers long-lasting pipeline solutions for corrosive water conditions such as process water and wastewater. This becomes more and more important as our water resources get scarce and there is pressure on South African farmers to make use of alternative water sources. Your Zimmatic dealer can assist in recommending the best pipeline for your irrigation operation.

Convenient Chemigation

Zimmatic pivots provide precise, uniform water application to your crops. When you chemigate through your Zimmatic pivots, you get those same advantages, while improving the quality and quantity of your crops. Chemigation is the application of agricultural fertilizers, soil amendments and pesticides through irrigation water. By using Zimmatic pivots, you can easily chemigate your fields as effectively and easily as possible.

Feedback from farmers

Well, if someone comes knocking on my door and he asks me, “Listen, Botha, you have been in irrigation for 12 years, you need to make the decision now: which irrigation system will you use. And which product will you choose?”. Then it will be rather easy for me to say, you know, I don’t think you can go wrong by taking a Zimmatic machine. So if you come and knock on my door one day and ask me, “What must I pick”, then I will tell you, go with Zimmatic.
