Relax with the knowledge your landscape is being watered by reliable 5000 Series Rotors and industry-leading Rain Curtain Nozzle Technology. Rain Bird 5000 Series Rotors are ideal for medium to large-size lawns and evenly distribute water from 25 to 50 feet. The 5000 Series Rotors with Rain Curtain Technology are engineered to deliver a uniform spray pattern, giving you a consistently green lawn throughout. The larger water droplets produced by Rain Curtain technology prevent misting and airborne evaporation so the right amount of water is delivered to the right place, saving you water and money. Gentle close-in watering eliminates dry spots around the rotor, prevents seed washout and allows the turf to grow healthy with no matting or bending.

If your fixed left is too far left, wait until the head reaches the farthest right, the turn the head towards the right. Then re-adjust with the screw to correct the right side again. This is the arc adjustment.
The radius adjustment (front screw at nozzle) will adjust the spray. The more you turn the screw clockwise, the spray will lower and do more of a spray vs. a stream. Basically the screw is being sent downward not only to hold the spray head in, but then to affect the spray by protruding into the stream of water.
The center hole on a 5000 plus (green top) turns the flow off so that if you are adjusting numerous heads, you won't get soaked.
It also makes a difference which spray head nozzle you install into the hole prior to installing the head. If you look you will see numbers on the nozzles. The larger the number, the longer the throw. I usually use a 3.0 for a fairly long travel. Hope this helps.
These rotors are adjustable with a fixed left and then can be adjusted to the right with a simple turn of a screw. The middle screw turns the head on and off (Plus) and the distance that it throws can be changed with the insertion of the various nozzles provided with the rotor. Also can be changed slightly by how far down you put the screw that holds the nozzle in place.
I find the "plus" feature nice because you can shut some heads off when adjusting your system so you don't get soak and wet. Also, if you have a head in the shade, and the rest of the zone is in the sun, you can turn the head off at times. Gives some flexibility for not a lot of cost.
