I could see them being a problem in soft ground, if the force of the spray from part-circle heads moves them.

Nothing super special about these except their throw for a standard rotor. Have replaced them when needed but personally would prefer if RB made one that threw the distance and had the same setup as the I-90. If you have the flow and need the distance, why not just go for a VIH type unit like the Toro 835\855 Series heads that are truly designed for distance.

I've got six of 'em in a corral. They work well enough, just stay out of the way of the main nozzle when they come on.

If you have the available water, you could look at the Eagle 950 from Rain Bird. The larger top "flange" makes them a lot more stable that a traditional commercial type rotor. You might also check the Underhill Mirage rotor - I haven't used them personally but I have heard good things.

I installed them for a riding ring....they will rip your skin wide open if you have a small cut already. They are throwing around 75'
