Measuring yesterday, the MP 3000 rotator 360* covers right at 50' diameter at 3.29 GPH. The 3500's cover a radius of around 35 feet. They also don't "mist off" in our windy conditions here. I have a mixture of MP300 & 3500 in each zone. High pressure nozzles would just send the water floating on the wind to the neighbors pasture.......
