Gear Drive Sprinklers are smooth in action, gentle on tender crops, and can operate on lower pressures than larger sprinklers. Continuous rotation, slow reversing speeds, and uniform water patterns make Gear Drive Sprinklers an ideal selection for mounting on stationary gun stands, traveling irrigators, center pivots, and much more. No tools are required to change the operation from part circle to full circle; nozzles are interchangeable by hand.
