    Were these the 4" or newer 6" models? I'm kind of curious as to how well the retraction springs work. We have ground buildup always occurring; after all we're one of the dustiest ag areas around. I'm looking at using them as replacements for the 4" model. I'm sure the buckets aren't the same so I should be able to just dig around the sprinkler enough to remove the whole thing and then pop in a 6" model into the hole. Then I don't have to dig up and raise the swing joint.

    Quite OK. :)

    Decided to take a chance on them today. Sent my partner to our main supplier (not Ewing) and their reaction was, "Huh? Haven't heard of them but we'll see if we can order you a couple of cases." :p

    We hooked 6 I-25's to a canyon fire relief system. 1 1/2" main, 90PSI at the connection. They throw water about 75' from the nozzles and get the slope pleanty wet. We used the 3/4" swing joints rather than bushing down to 1/2".

    Other than that I'm not seeing that we will have a great deal of use for them in most sites we work.

    Another good idea for sprinklers Bill. :)

    I've also used the 4" riser model for dust control in DG parking lots where they performed well. I'm now curious as to how well the 6" riser models work.
