I cannot find a photo, advertisement, or any article on this old walking sprinkler. Can anyone give me any info and possibly a value on this. Thank you in advance.

It is a Buckner Rain Coach "Traveler" Model RG14001: https://rrproducts.com/Buckner-Raincoach-product30049
The price listed on this site was $2,594.20.

Here's another look: https://lawnh2o.com/buckner/RainCoach.htm
They listed it around $1,700 to $1,900.

(I'm not endorsing these sites, but they showed up on my Google search.) I'll give you $20.00, but if you spruce it up it could be worth a couple hundred dollars. Give an assist to Ron Wolfarth who is correct. It is known as a Traveler sprinkler. A heavy-duty model like this works quite well, actually.

It's the grownup version of the ubiquitous tractor sprinkler. It could water a football field in two passes, supplied by quick-coupler connections at mid-field. I think the impact head was a special high-trajectory model, for extra spray distance.

I’ve got one in my basement. Would never sell it. I put a 503 rocker jet head on top. Your model is missing its arms and I don’t know if you’ll be able to find a pair. Possibly contact Buckner directly.
