TORO MINI-8 ROTORS:
A new ½-inch rotor; specifically designed for applications that are too small for a full-size rotor; but too large for a fixed sprayhead; is now offered by The Toro Company.
Fully adjustable from 40 to 360 degrees; the new Mimi 8 Series rotor provides both part- and full-circle operation in one head. Five interchangeable nozzles offer a radius of throw from 15 to 30 feet (4;6 to 9 meters); while a stainless steel adjustment screw allows radius reduction of up to 25 percent.
Not only can the Mini 8 rotor’s spray pattern be adjusted easily from the top of the unit; but it also offers a visual and precise arc indicator; for example showing that the arc is set to exactly 90 degrees.
Especially appealing is the small; 2 ¼” (57mm) cap diameter; which makes the rotor virtually undetectable in landscaping. For added convenience; a unique grip-and-turn feature makes adjustment simple in wet or dry conditions; while a fine-mesh; snap-in filter screen protects against nozzle-clogging debris. The Mini 8 has a flow rate of 0.8 to 7.5 GMP (3 to 28;3 LPM); a recommended pressure range of 30 to 50 psi (2;4 to 3;5 Bars) and a maximum operating pressure of 60 psi (4;4 Bars).
