TASMANIAN company, Van Diemens Land irrigation, specialises in the import and manufacture of quality irri- gation and pumping equipment from around the world. They purchase and import directly from overseas manufac- turers, cutting out sales agents and marketers and passing on savings to the end user. Van Diemens Land Irrigation was started in 2010 by Rob Ikin. ''We keep infrastructure and warehousing costs low and pass savings directly to the con- sumer,'' he said. While Van Diemens Land Irrigation is a new entity, the business incorporated Rob's existing irrigation business which had specialised in im- porting and manufacturing irri- gation pumping equipment and systems since 2000. Branching into importing pivot, linear and hard hose irrigator equipment provides the base products for Van Die- mens Land's irrigation busi- ness. Rob, who has had more than 20 years experience in the irri- gation and agricultural machin- ery industry, is highly experi- enced technically in all aspects of irrigation, pumping system design and irrigation water ap- plication. ''We can save clients a signifi- cant amount of money because we are direct importers and sell directly to the end user. ''We have our own crew of very qualified and experienced irrigation contractors and ser- vice technicians and offer a complete installation service if required as well as prompt back up of all our irrigation equip- ment. Van Diemens Land Irrigation is Tasmanian importing agents for Pierce Irrigators, which are a quality US built machine. ''Pierce has been manufactur- ing irrigation equipment in Eugene, Oregon since 1932,'' Rob said. ''Pierce corporation remains one of the oldest pri- vately owned irrigation manu- facturers in the US with affili- ated companies across the globe employing more than 3500 staff. ''On a global scale Pierce's consolidated operations make it the fourth largest manufacturer of irrigation equipment in the world. ''The Pierce flagship ma- chine, the CP600 centre pivot, is an impressive irrigator built for strength and reliability with many features and benefits lack- ing in competitors' machines. ''Pierce also build a poly lined pivot for hard water and efflu- ent, a high-profile machine as well as a five-inch machine for lower flows and smaller fields.'' Pierce built the Fieldmaster Linear, a heavy duty irrigator with a unique swing-around four-wheel cart. Pierce is the leading manufac- turer in the world of mini pivots and have perfected a four-inch heavy duty micro pivot which is ideal for small fields and undulating country and is a cost effective way of irrigating dairy effluent. The irrigator has very mini- mum power requirements along with the proven benefits of pivot irrigation. Van Diemens Land Irrigation is also importing agents for Irtec hard hose irrigators. Itrec is one of Italy's leading manufactures of hard hose irri- gators and the Irtec machine is a heavy duty, sturdily con- structed machine with a very efficient turbine drive that will work effectively on pressures as low as 22psi when combined with a low pressure boom. ''Currently we have stock of the 110x420 and 100x350 ma- chines. ''We also have a range of machines suitable for small plots and speciality crops,'' Rob said. Irtec manufacture machines from 40x130 up to a 150x600 machine. ''All irrigators can be indi- vidually ordered from the fac- tory to suit clients' needs.'' Van Diemens Land Irrigation specialises in the manufacture of electric and diesel irrigation pump sets. ''We import our own ISO2858 centrifugal pumps and MEPS standard electric motors and manufacture in-house our own heavy duty pump sets with tough hot dipped galvanised frames for longevity in our tough con- ditions. ''We can build up your next diesel set to suit all pumping application as we have access to all the best engine brands includ- ing John Deere and Cummins, Iveco and Hatz. ''Van Diemens Land Irrigation also offers prompt and very competitive finance and terms to approved clients.
