While an automatic sprinkling system certainly ensures greener grass and nurtured flowerbeds during the sweltering days of summer, at LR Nelson are employed to worry about finding comprehensive watering methods for busy homeowners who don't have the means, time, or desire to dig up the yard to install and intricate system of sprinkler pipes. Responsible for a bevy of creative lawn care solutions, the Peoria, Illinois outfit introduces this ingenious Rain train traveling sprinkler
Sprinkler waters up to 13, 500 square feet, though covering a lesser area of 11,9000 square feet ensures more effective performance. The sprinkler arms adjust for varied spray patterns and arcs, throwing water from 15' to 56'.
For the best results, LR Nelson recommends a 5/8" hose, though a 1/2" hose may suffice, up to 200' in length. For sprinkling termination, the user places a shut-off ramp on the hose to lift the sprinkler off its "rails," while simultaneous stopping operation. The shut-off ramp should be installed with at least five feet of hose between it and the spigot. The traveling sprinkler operates at two motor speeds, high and low. On high power, the sprinkler travels approximately 37' per hour, with a 1/4" water application. On low power, the sprinkler moves at a 21' per hour rate with a 1/2" water application.
