take a look at these end guns Sime vs the nelson. IMO they produce a better water spread and it would be on turf. We use them on our center irrigation systems and they dont produce the deluge of water when the trip arm opperates.
We use them because of the low flow/pressure on the center irrigation pivots.

Looking at the Big Gun specs, I wonder why they didn't amp up the water supply, so they could get a 200-foot throw, and not worry about ever needing a sprinkler inside the arena.

I remember someone telling me a rancher got one of the jumbo heads to cool off a feed lot, but the first mounting was too low to the ground, and supposedly, the high-pressure spray killed one of his steers.

I'm not really buying it, mind you, but maybe there's someone out there dumb enough to not set a big gun above head height. I do remember one residential system done with Thompson rotors with such a high-pressure high-volume spray, that it was painful to touch the stream of water.
