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
  • 3/4 in. female threaded bottom inlet
  • Operating pressure: 25 - 65 psi
  • Flow rate: 2.3 to 3.8 gpm

Will this work with the regular rainbird spinkler system? All of my sprinklers are 19-32ft (or whichever the default sprinkler specs are) and can I use one of these with the rest of the sprinklers?
Asked by: mike
Yes. As long as you have adequate water pressure on each zone and not too many sprinklers on each valve/zone.

From the bottom of the ground (where the connector is) to the surface is 9" height. This product is little over 7 inch (without the pop-up height). It's about 2 inch short from my surface. Can I still use this or I need to buy a sprinkler that is 9" height?
Asked by: IA
You can get cut-off extensions that raise it up in 1/2" increments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like that these spray heads are easy to install... I like that these spray heads are easy to install and adjust, without special tools. A small (1/8" or 3mm) slotted screwdriver works fine. The instructions say to turn the rubber top section all the way to the right, then all the way to the left. I do this prior to installation. The old spray heads can be unscrewed and the new screwed in, without digging up the whole spray head. The arrow in the black rubber section should point to the left spray border (stop) when installed. The right stopping point can be adjusted with the screwdriver by turning as indicated by the arrows to the (+) or (-) to increase or decrease the spray path. Initially the spray heads spray pretty far (~35' - 38'), but can be adjusted using the same screwdriver, but this time by the left border arrow. Note that the screwdriver needs to be inserted down through the cross-slots in the rubber portion of the sprinkler top either by the arrow head (spray) or the opposite end (spray path right stop). Note that if the left border is not exactly where you want it once installed and tested, it can be adjusted by turning the top part of the sprinkler head immediately below the rubber section. I find that this adjustment is made easier by using large channel-lock pliers. Note that I did not rate four stars because the installations were recent, and I would like to see how well they hold up over at least several years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No check valves Most of my sprinkler head( all new heads) still drip water for few minutes. I tried adjusting the range and pattern settings but if you try the setting more than few times, then it stops working. When reviewing the design, it looks like there is no check valve that comes as default feature. And there are no accessories that can be bought as well. This needs to be special order and costs as much as the sprinkler head. If this valve in each of the heads can help save water, then why isnt this a option that comes with the head or awailable as an addon unit?

Buying the Rotor at Home Depot is a lot cheaper than the professional ones. The difference it that the professional ones have a stopper for water flow once the zone turns off. Not worth the price to me. Rain Bird's customer service is awesome. The rep knows the products inside an out. So if you have questions, they are the ones to call. Home Depot's prices are very good. They also stock a lot of the products -- a big plus.

I have Rainbird sprinkler heads and was looking for a comparable replacement. This product worked great. I looked up the DYI and did the replacement myself! Easy and efficient. I have had the product for two weeks now and am very pleased with the performance. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to save some money and install a new sprinkler head.

This was purchased to replace a model 5004PC rotor after it had been damaged by some utility work. It is a 4" pop--up and has all the features and adjustments to give the coverage needed. It comes with a 3 gal/min nozzle. Was glade to find this in stock for a quick repair.
