Pierce Corporation - a name long associated with quality, delivery and world-class service that is now taking you into the 22nd century.
We are committed to flawless execution and delivery, and we take pride in helping our customers thrive in today's challenging environments. We share the visions of our customers and partner with them in their success.
Structure design in the irrigation industry has been virtually stagnant for 25 years. In fact, the primary design changes have been simply to reduce weight and slash costs. It is Pierce Corporation’s conviction that the best machines were actually made in the mid to late 80’s.
This in fact is planned obsolescence. Pierce Corporation’s approach is vastly different due to our agricultural roots and commitment to the industry in that we wanted a machine that would last for generations.
After rigorous testing of our CP600 design, Pierce Corporation increased the wall thickness of our pipe, improved the span coupler to give considerably increased flexibility and vastly improve the strength and longevity of our structures. The tower legs have a multi-bolt fastening system to improved the strength and our pipe tabs have a load distribution design unique to the industry.
It is our commitment to see our center pivots lasting 30+ years as opposed to selling a new machine every decade.
The Pierce P93 Center Pivot was a well known, quality machine that had sold thousands of units worldwide and is running quite well today. However, demand for efficiency, structural strength, and ease of setup encouraged Pierce to evolve the P93 to it’s current, most advanced flagship; The Pierce CP-600.
Pierce Corporation structurally designed the CP-600 to correct for weaknesses found on many machines of today. In doing so, Pierce’s latest design of the CP-600 is considered the most structurally sound machine in the industry.
