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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Rotor Drive Sprinkler Yet! I have to admit I was very disappointed when I got to the store to see that they did not stock the Rain Bird 5000 series any longer. I had tried Hunters, Toro's and Orbits in the past and had finally found that the RB 5000 worked the best on my lawn as far as coverage and movement of water. I found the RB 42SA in the slot where I once found the 5000's and decided to give them a try. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. These by far are the easiest to adjust with the ability to hit the lines directly of my walk way and drive way and the water that they move is amazing! Typically I would have to run my front yard for an hour to keep the lawn from burning up in the summer here in So Fla. The coverage and the amount of water these deliver I'm thinking that I will be able to cut my water time in half! April 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent Keeps dirt out water distance is excellent even with low water pressure easy to adjust November 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Sprinkler, Read instructions first Overall good sprinkler. A little hard to adjust the distance of spray and the rotation but that should be expected with a sprinkler like this. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best of all other brands I have had a chance to use other brand names over the years and it seamed that I was replacing them each year, year after year. I then I used an Rain Bird and it was easy to install and easy to set up and even better than that it lasted. The only time that I needed to replace a Rain Bird was when I ran over it with a mower or broke myself. I just build a new house and putting in a new yard and I am using Rain Bird for every thing because of the durability and longevity. September 16, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rain Bird sprinkler. You can't go wrong with rain bird sprinkles I haven't had problems with them yet. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Working Well I've had leakage problems with sprinkler heads of this type before but this one seems to be working with only some leaking around the spray head when watering. It was easy to adjust the pattern, both arc and distance. I'd have to see zero leakage to give it a five star but I think what I've got is about as good as it gets with these things.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 25% failure rate One of four purchased did not rotate...so had to dig it back up and replace it again. This inconvenience causes the low rating since these units typically last for years. September 2, 2014
