Product Overview

  • Adjustable rotor with rain curtain technology for even watering
  • Adjustable spray distance of 19-32 ft. and pattern of 40°-360°
  • Simple top adjustments for arc and distance
This premium quality rotor features a stainless steel shaft for longer life. Its extended throw distance up to 50 ft. plus superior coverage uniformity make the 52SA gear drive rotor an ideal upgrade for large zones where greener, healthier grass is desired. It adjusts easily at the top with a flat blade screwdriver to ensure that you are watering only things that grow, not the house, sidewalk or driveway. It installs on a standard 3/4 in. riser for simple replacement of older rotors and provides a true 4 in. pop-up height to clear taller grass. Water lubricated, gear driven design provides long lasting dependability. Dual action, positive stop wiper seal protects internals from debris and, together with a heavy duty stainless steel spring, assures positive pop-up and retraction for water savings. Advanced Rain Curtain nozzle technology produces large water droplets that fall exactly where you want them, resisting windblown overspray. The nozzle micro ramps also direct a portion of the spray close to the head, eliminating dry brown spots that are common with other rotor brands. This superior coverage uniformity can help you reduce watering time on your rotor zone, saving money on water bills.
  • Spray distance 25 ft. - 50 ft.
  • Adjustable 40 to 360 arc for use anywhere in your lawn
  • 3/4 in. bottom inlet, the most common size for larger rotors
  • 4 in. pop-up height clears taller grass
  • Rain curtain nozzle technology for uniform water distribution
  • Quick adjust from the top for arc and distance
  • Quiet, water-lubricated drive mechanism
  • Positive stop wiper seal protects drive mechanism from debris
  • Closed case design for use with sand soil, creeping grasses and other demanding applications
  • Maximum operating pressure of 70 PSI

1ST TIME TRYING THESE POP UP'S- USED A WAND FOR YRS LOW WATER WELL PRESSURE ( 30 Psi) I HAVE A 30 FT WIDE X 50 FT LONG DOWNHILL FRONT YARD.. i ASSUME TO RUN MY WATER LINE DOWN ONE SIDE TO 25 ' AND LET IT SPRAY OUT 25 'FT AT 180 DEGREES, RIGHT? THUS WOULD ONLY HAVE TO COVER 25 FT IN ALL 3 DIRECTIONS Or Run the water line down the middle , approx 25 ft, but will only need 15" at both Width sides, but 25ft for the 50% OF THE 50 FT other 2 Long sides.. IS THIS THE CORRECT UNIT TO USE?

How many gals per min does this head require?

Asked by: willie
The rotor comes with a #3 nozzle installed. At 45 PSI the flow would require 3.09 GPM. This rotor can function with a flow of 1.35 GPM (gallons per minute) to 8.86 GPM, and a PSI (pressure per square inch) of 35 to 55, where 45 is the optimal pressure. Some of the variance in performance is determined by the nozzle size used with the rotor. Different nozzles can be purchased in the nozzle pack model #4252NZPLK.

Reviewers complaining that these don't throw water far enough may simply not have enough pressure. I'm gradually replacing all of my sprinkler heads with this one because they've been reliable and easy to adjust. I've been using them for about a year and have had no problems with them at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't shoot 50ft, inconsistent stream This sprinkler, at this price, is a total flop. It doesn't shoot anywhere near 50ft. I had a hard time getting it to go 30, and this is in a system with only TWO heads in a smaller yard, so pressure wasn't a problem. The adjustment screws are covered with a useless rubber "protector" that keeps you from seeing the screws. You just have to feel for them with your screwdriver through a tiny slit. While adjusting the radius screw, (have to use an eyeglasses screwdriver; it's a super small screw) trying to get it to shoot anywhere near 40' (only 80% of its advertised max radius), the screw came out and shot across the yard. So now it just shoots a jet of water about 40', not watering anything between it and the 40' outside radius. I'll be replacing this head tomorrow.

Highlights include better construction than the plastic counterpart, doesn't require a proprietary tool to adjust (flat head screwdriver), and a better coverage pattern at the immediate radius ("close-in" range) - Not having to replace these every couple of years (as is the case with the models that are entirely plastic) completely justifies the (slightly) higher cost for these units. You won't be disappointed with the overall durability, performance, coverage and construction of these upgraded sprinklers.

I have used two of these to replace 5000 series sprinkler heads at our church and they are easy to adjust, much easier than the 5000, especially the left hand stop. These 52SA heads have a slip clutch so you can just crank them to the right position and then adjust the rotation limit. I did not have to replace the entire head, I just unscrewed the top from the base to save the trouble of digging out the dirt around the bottom. The little special Rain Bird screwdriver is very handy.
