The invention relates to agriculture, in particular to a sprinkling machines.

Features sprinkling machine with hydraulic drive trucks and frontal movement (product catalogue irrigation systems and equipment. Part 1. "Domestic equipment". - M., 2001, P.36-37), in which there is a system of movement at the rate of the guide wire, the system synchronization trucks and automatic shutdown DM. Device for automated control of the front of the machine includes installed on each of the trucks hydraulic actuator, powered from the main pipeline DM, the control unit of movement of the machine at the rate of the guide wire, the synchronization unit. Zapisywanie hydraulic drives trucks and synchronization is carried out separately for each truck of the water conveyance pipeline DM, i.e. sequentially washing systems hydraulic trolleys.

The disadvantages of this technical solution is even more complex and cumbersome design, great material and monetary costs, low reliability, and accuracy of the control of the Executive bodies of DM.

Known technical solutions, which are used for front moving trucks sprinkling machines, in particular DM "Kuban-M (Sandigursky D.M., Bezrodnov N.A. Mechanization of irrigation slave is so - M.: Kolos, 1983. - P.65-75). The machine has a system of movement at the rate of the guide wire, the unit (system) synchronization in a line and emergency stop. All of these control systems and sensors - electric.

The disadvantages of this technical solution is the complexity and bulkiness of the design, the big money and material costs, additional laying of electrical cable management systems and synchronization.

The invention aims to remedy these disadvantages.

The technical result is increased reliability and precision motion control front sprinkler.

This is achieved by stabilization of the course is supplied from a water conveyance pipeline and system synchronization extreme (right and left) trucks and control of Executive bodies (cylinders trucks) - additional pipeline parallel scheme.

The drawing shows a hydraulic circuit of the machine.

The traffic management system sprinkler machine with the hydraulic drive includes a water conveyance pipeline 1, consisting of the left and right wings, the valve 2 with the rods 3 and 4 of the stabilization system of course with the guide wire 5, additional pipeline 6, valves-valves 7 and the cylinder 8 of the Central drive truck. One of the additional pipe the wire 6 through the control valve 9 synchronization system 10 with the cable 11 one peripheral truck and valve dispenser 12 is hydraulically connected with the cylinder 13 of this truck. Another portion of the pipeline through the control valve 14 synchronization system 15 with the cable 16 and the valve-the valve 17 is connected with the cylinder 18 other peripheral truck.

The system works as follows. When leaving the machine with course deviate rod 3 or 4 in one direction or another and involve the appropriate control valves 2 stabilization system of course, which, in turn, increase or decrease the water flow in the secondary pipe 6. This modified pressure and flow rate is supplied through valves-valves 7 in the cylinders 8 of the Central drive truck and then in a parallel scheme, through appropriate control valves 9, 14 synchronization systems 10, 15 and valves-valves 12, 17 to the hydraulic cylinders 13, 18 peripheral trucks.

Non-synchronous movement of the peripheral trucks causes the curvature of the pipe 1 of the machine. While the cables 11 and 16, mounted on the blocks and attached to the tubing machine, affect control valves 9, 14 synchronization systems 10, 15 of the respective trucks. Thus, regulates the movement of the peripheral trucks, eliminating the gap or overlapping.

Thus, the parallel operation of the two systems allows you to quickly eliminate the deviation from straightness of the movement of the machine.

The invention in comparison with the prototype has the following advantages:

- allows to increase the reliability and precision motion control front DM;

- the use of this design of the control system DM allows to reduce the consumption of the machine and to simplify it;

- helps reduce operating and capital expenditures for the modernization of existing and new release DM;

- allows the use of already known and mastered by industry components.
