Setting the Speed
Your Traveling Sprinkler will travel from 0 to 40 feet per hour, depending on the water pressure at your faucet and the speed setting selected – low, high or stationary. (Figure 1)
Sprinkler will travel about 10 to 30 feet per hour and put down approximately 7/8” of water.* In low speed, the connecting rods on both sides of the sprinkler are fastened to the inside set of holes on the drive cranks (Figure 1). All sprinklers are shipped from the factory in low speed.
Sprinkler will travel 15 to 40 feet per hour and put down approximately 1/2” of water.* To change into high speed, the connecting rods on both sides of the sprinkler must be moved to the outside set of holes on the drive cranks (Figure 1). The hex wrench can be used to remove (and then secure) the shoulder screws that hold the two connecting rods in place.
By flipping up both of the drive pawls above the back wheels, the sprinkler will water in one place without traveling. (Figure 2)
*Your traveling speed and the amount of water applied can vary depending on operating conditions. Our calculations used 5/8” garden hose, 44 PSI faucet pressure with a 25 foot diameter spray pattern.
