PGJ Rotor

PGJ is a rotor specifically for use on smaller zones that typically use a spray but can now have all the benefits of a rotor. PGJ can be used:

-As a Spray Head Alternative--Cover mid-size areas with less trenching and pipe fitting.

-With Low Pressures and Low Flows--Cover a large area effectively and efficiently when water is at a minimum.

-On the Same Zone as Larger Rotors--Cover smaller adjacent areas and narrow strips in one zone to save on extra valves and pipe runs.

PGJ. Fewer heads performing more efficient work for a more economical price.

Rain Bird

5000/5000 Plus MPR Nozzle

The 5000/5000 Plus MPR (Matched Precipitation Rate) Rotor Nozzles allow individuals to match precipitation rates within and between radii from 25 to 35 feet. These water-saving nozzles eliminate the risk of over or under watering and with Rain Bird’s exclusive Rain Curtain Technology, help reduce both run-off and erosion. Superior flexibility in arc adjustment eliminates the need to use fixed arc plates to help achieve MPR within and between radii. MPR nozzle models are 5000-MPR-25, 5000-MPR-30 and 5000-MPR-35, each designed with quarter, third, half and full circle nozzles.

The Toro Company

TR70XT Series Rotor

The TR70XT Series commercial-grade rotor’s patented TruJectory™ permits trajectory adjustments from 5 to 25 degrees to compensate for wind, low-hanging branches or other obstacles. Another Toro exclusive, the X-Flow® shutoff device in the riser, restricts water loss if the nozzle is removed or damaged, allowing for dry nozzle changes or maintenance while the system is running. The rotor’s unique arc adjustment band provides simple, precise settings from 30 to 360 degrees while eliminating palming and reducing the need for fine-tuning. Plus, a Smart Arc™ feature returns the sprinkler to its previously set arc in case of tampering.
