Long days in the wilderness chasing elk and deer across Colorado, Idaho and Montana makes for a lot of time for a couple of guys to talk and solve the world’s problems. One of those problems was the time and effort needed to constantly move wheel lines.
For anyone who has moved a wheel line, you know that they can be a pain to move. It’s not the hardest work in the world, but it takes time and effort. Sometimes it requires waking up at unsightly hours or it pulls you away from another project to move a line. That frustration started the process to try and solve this problem.
The solution was born one September night in 2017. We simply thought, “Why can’t we use the water to power and move it?” From that night on, the development and refinement process started and HydroSide Systems was born.
From there, our passion for innovation led to water, energy and labor savings for farmers through our patent-pending HydroSide System. Our hydroelectric system is the first and only retrofit that automates a traveling gun and traveling boom, and can pay for itself in 2 years or less. And while we tried hard, hydroelectric power just wasn’t the right fit for the wheel line, which lead our team to utilize innovation and technology to create a highly effective solar powered wheel mover. Our system will increase annual crop yield by more efficiently delivering water while saving significantly on your labor and energy costs. This all means more revenue per acre for the farmer and less headaches over staff management.
