The new product can be used to pick up added acreage both throughout the full revolution of the pivot or just in the corners, according to the company, depending on site specifics and irrigator preferences.

It can be used in conjunction with a higher volume Big Gun sprinkler or on its own.

The model is to be mounted in an upright position at the end of the overhang. It can remain on, turn on via a solenoid on an 800 series valve or work under the logic of a linked control system with a SR100/800P valve or nozzle valve.

This part circle, multi-stream sprinkler operates under the same principles of other rotator sprinklers. It has a braking mechanism that controls the rotation of the sprinkler plate. The highly engineered plate geometry turns the water flow into multiple streams. 

Optimized, wind-fighting droplets project out far, while gentler droplets fall in near – filling in the water pattern. Water hitting the plate drives the rotation while the rotator brake maintains a uniform speed.


Performance is 40-50 feet at 15-30 psi. Typical added acreage on a 1Ž4 mile pivot is six to eight acres irrigating full circle and five to six acres at corners only.  FG
