I just wanted to share my “cheapie” home made (high end) portable sprinkler.
I could not bring myself to pay for the falcon rotor sled sprinkler from BIGSPRIKLER.COM. Ball park 150 ish bucks delivered.
So I built my own and even used the stainless steel falcon rotor instead of the lesser plastic version for a total of 43 bucks.
Note: I was worried the weight of the base would not be able to handle the “torque” of the sprinkler. However it’s so solid I can probably make the support legs 1/2 as long reducing its total size.

65 “ish” ft
I space my in ground irrigation at closer to 50 to 55ft
I turn down the adjustment screw for a more broken up main jet which makes that spacing more appropriate
Those photos are running their #12 nozzle.
