    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.

    I am getting 65 ft @ 85-90 psi on an arena using falcons. Mounted them on 5 ft x 2 in Sched 80 risers 5 years without a hitch.

    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'
