Product Overview

  • Improves coverage consistency and allows reduced cycle times
  • Superior durability plus exceptional watering uniformity
  • Simple top adjustments for arc and distance
This professional grade Rain Bird 42SA+ rotor sprinkler features superior durability plus exceptional watering uniformity of patented Rain Curtain nozzle technology, resulting in a greener and more even lawn with reduced watering time. The rotor distributes larger water droplets that cover evenly throughout the pattern, also reducing wind-blown overspray. Nozzle micro ramps direct a portion of the spray near the head, adding gentle close-in coverage with reduced watering velocity that won't wash out new seed. Simple top adjustments for arc and distance help you keep water on the grass, not spraying on the house, sidewalk or driveway. The rotor also features a rugged dual-action, positive stop wiper seal that protects internals from debris and, together with a heavy duty stainless steel spring, assures positive retraction for leak-free performance. It installs on a standard 3/4 in. riser for simple replacement of older rotors.
  • Improve coverage consistency and reduce cycle times with this rotor's Rain Curtain nozzle technology that distributes water more evenly throughout the pattern
  • More effective close-in coverage solves problems with dry spots around the heads of your rotor zone
  • Water lubricated, gear driven design is quiet and trouble-free
  • Self-flushing at pop-down to clear debris and maintain spray efficiency
  • Nozzle is easy to remove for replacement and maintenance
  • 40° - 360° arc as well as reversing full circle rotation
  • 4 in. pop-up clears taller grass
  • 1/2 in. female threaded bottom inlet
  • Operating pressure: 25 - 65 psi
  • Flow rate: 2.3 to 3.8 gpm

Does this rotor come with a standard noozle installed or do you need to buy noozle sets?

Asked by: Bruce
You don't need to buy a nozzle set. You adjust the spray pattern by turning a screw which interrupts the water pattern.

Will this work with well water from shallow well

Asked by: Sam
There are no filters to clog but depending on how fine the sprayer is, it could clog with debris in the water. I've only used the big drag around sprinklers with well water and they turned the same color as the well water, so there can be a lot of solids in it.

Is there a way to adjust the "fixed left edge" ?

This is installed right in front of a fence between us and the neighboring yard. No matter how I try to adjust the arc it sprays against the fence or seems to always do 360 .. I would like it to be 180 on our side of the property of course. It seems the left edge points in the wrong direction when the full rotor is screwed in. Thanks.

26 - 38 ft. 42SA+ Simple Adjust Pop-Up Heavy-Duty Gear Drive Rotor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 127.

All three have wiper seal failure from the first moment of use with significant leakage while running at 30-40psi. One was missing the nozzle so that after installation on a test riser, it shot a long-rage stream out into neighboring property well beyond the specified range. All three shall be returned for replacement with another option. I'm disgusted that the product never made it past the most basic testing which I do before ever going to the trouble to put these blasted rotors into the landscaping. After three years of dealing with 100% of my Rain Bird pop-up rotor sprinklers failing in ONE short watering season or less, when they were never exposed to freezing weather, I'm done buying any more, and I'm absolutely disgusted.

I used the Rain Bird 42SA+ pop-up rotor sprinkler heads to replace my old Rain Bird as well as other brand heads that had worn out and stopped working. Easy to screw in and adjust with a (really) small, flat-head screwdriver. Good throw range and consistent stop/reverse points. Will buy again when the rest fail.

Have had the Rain Bird impact sprayers in my yard irrigation system for about 12 years. They tend to get clogged up with dirt, roots and leaves which prevents their proper functioning. So am changing to these Rain Bird 42SA+ pop-up rotors which also give far better water coverage. Very pleased with the result.

Suggest practice adjusting before installing to get a feel. If one does that, adjustment after installation is only tweaking. Also suggest getting Rainbird adjustment screwdriver as it's a perfect fit.

I needed to replace a lawn sprinkler and decided to move the location slightly, so I dug up the yard to adjust the piping. I then went to HD and bought a Rainbird 42SA since it was similar to my 10 year-old Rainbird sprinklers. The 42SA comes with a 3.0 gallon nozzle which is way too much water for this shaded area of my yard and of course the new nozzle doesn't match my older Rainbird nozzles. When I went back to HD to purchase a nozzle set so I could install a smaller volume nozzle I discovered my HD doesn't have the nozzle set as an in-stock item, so I have to order online and wait a week to receive it. Who wants to dig up the sprinkler again in a week to install the proper size nozzle? For the same price the Hunter PGP-ADJ includes a nozzle set, so I'm going to return the Rainbird 42SA and purchase the Hunter product. Home Depot and Rainbird should take a clue from Hunter and have the nozzle sets in stock for immediate purchase. My front and rear lawn sprinklers were all Rainbird, but it seems that I'll now be switching over to Hunter products.

They have good YouTube videos to help with setup. The instructions on the unit itself are somewhat vague, but I'm not a sprinkler expert, so that could be the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install Unfortunately my mower forgets where sprinkler heads are so they need occasional replacement. These work great and a reasonable price. Set up instructions could be clearer, but they can be figured out.
