No matter what their job or position, our employees exemplify the innovative spirit of founder RichardReinke. Our tradition of innovation shows in the quality of every detail.
High-strength steel is the key to durability and functionality in our systems. We wouldn’t use anything less. High-strength steel reduces:
To achieve the same strength as Reinke systems, our competitors use larger diameter truss rods. Larger diameter rods add weight, not necessarily strength. High-strength steel rods alone can reduce tower weight by more than 200 lbs.
Our Three-Wheel Tower option provides additional flotation needed for soil types that rut easily. It also aids the system in traversing challenging terrain.
Our unique single-leg tower design is an industry innovation. It's engineered to absorb stress that would normally be transferred to the pipeline. This dynamic design means less wear and tear on the system, less maintenance and lower ownership costs for you.
Durable. Stable. Easy to maintain. These trademark features start with the advanced design of Reinke’s pivot.
*Optional triple lip seals are available on low pressure installations.

|Reinke Internal Flex Joint||External Ball-hitch Coupler|
As you can see from The Friction Loss Comparison charts, the Reinke internal flex joint produces minimal loss (approximately 1 psi with 800 gpm on a 1300', eight-tower system) regardless of field conditions. The external ball-hitch coupler (in the chart) will generate approximately half to four times more loss, due to its design and operation on rolling terrain. Charts completed with information from a Clemson University Study.
System alignment controls are centered over the hinge point of every span, providing precise alignment even on irregular terrain.
We’re the only irrigation system manufacturer to offer five types of mainline pipe and several different diameters to precisely match your water and application conditions. With 40 years’ experience working with alternative materials we provide unsurpassed knowledge in matching the best pipe material to meet your irrigation needs.
Reinke’s new and improved poly-lined pipe is now available in 6 5/8” galvanized pipe. The high density 3/16” polyethylene liner is constructed from virgin materials and not from recycled product. Each sprinkler outlet is equipped with a heavy duty ¾” glass-reinforced, nylon coupler spaced 57” apart for maximum uniformity of application. The added strength provided by the ¾” coupler allows the use of ¾” PVC drops or hose drops using standard ¾” PVC U-pipes or the 125 degree goosenecks with hose slings.
