Rainbird just did a minor revamp on the 5000 series. Something to do with the gears so they don't strip out as easy.

But will it stop spinning if you look at it funny?
No they generally wait until you have left the job site and are about 1 mile down the road so you can't see them stop turning. That way you don't get to hear about it until half the turf is dead and its your fault.

I like the 30/30 warranty someone else posted about in a different thread. :)

I think it was "30 minutes or 30 feet...whichever comes first." :laugh:
