Rain Bird 5000

The Next Evolution in Rotor Performance – The World’s Best Quality Rotor.


Rain Bird 5000 Applications

The 5000 Enhanced and 5000 Plus Series mid-range rotor complements Rain Bird’s already strong Top Adjust Rotor Family, by offering greater durability, high quality standards and performance. Whether used in a residential or commercial application, the 5000 Series promises to deliver “the next evolution in Rotor Performance”.


Rain Bird 5000 Features

• On 5000 Plus, Stream ControlTM Technology (SCT) with Flow Shut-off capabilities:

– Flow Shut-Off device (cone valve) integrated into the flow path of the rotor assures maximum stream efficiency.

– Flow Path to Nozzle Bore transition radius minimizes pressure loss and assures peak nozzle performance.

– Smoothed Flow Path entrance of the rotor increases the maximum flow capabilities.

• Enhanced Rain CurtainTM Nozzles:

– Increased radius range with less flow per nozzle.

– New Micro-Ramps for Superior Close-in Watering.

– Nozzle Extraction Feature for easy rotor maintenance.

• Standard Rubber Cover.

• Tree of nozzles including low angle and standard angle Rain CurtainTM Nozzles.

• Heavy-duty cover assembly for extra durability in residential or commercial applications.

• Debris SentryTM integrated into the turret of the rotor, protects the internals from debris.

• Heavy-duty retract spring assures positive pop-down.

• Top-adjustment arc requiring only a flat-blade screwdriver.

• Water-lubricated gear-drive design for durable, reliable operation.

• 40-360° Arc Rotation for reversing Full and Part Circle in one (a non-reversing Full circle only unit is also available).

• Radius adjustment screw allows up to 25% radius reduction without changing nozzles.

• True 10,15 and 30 cm pop-up from the case cover to the nozzle.

• Pressure activated multifunction wiper seal protects internals from debris and assures positive pop-up and retraction.

• Reinforced flow path for additional side load strength.

• Additional o-rings and seals for extra protection in “gritty” water.
