When watering large areas like agricultural fields, sports turf and feed yards, efficient, long-range rotors can save an eye-opening amount of water, money and time. By installing just a few of Rain Bird’s new XLR Series water jets, users can enjoy more efficient irrigation that makes a significant positive impact on their bottom lines. 

“Our XLR Series long-range rotors are loaded with industry-leading, water-saving and cost-efficient innovations,” says Jeffrey Johnson, Rain Bird’s senior product manager for commercial rotors and valves. “With three models and a wide range of nozzles to choose from, anyone tasked with watering a large area for the purposes of irrigation or dust mitigation can create a custom solution to fit their unique needs.”

Because Rain Bird constructed its XLR Series water jets with durable, lightweight materials, the rotors require less force to initiate or change motion. The intelligently designed deflector, barrel and nozzles operate with less water pressure, evenly distributing the right amount of water while minimizing wasteful runoff. A self-adjusting automatic brake system helps the rotors maintain a constant rotation speed, while a dynamic jet-breaker corrects uneven distribution that can happen in low-water-pressure situations.

All three XLR models feature part- and full-circle operation. The XLR 24 model has a fixed, 24-degree trajectory and nine available nozzles for a throw range of 92 to 177 feet. With a fixed, 44-degree trajectory and nine available nozzles, the XLR 44 model can throw water from 85 to 174 feet. Users can adjust the XLR ADJ model’s trajectory from 15 to 45 degrees for the ultimate in versatility. Nine available nozzles for this model range in size from 12 to 28 millimeters.

“Our XLR Series water jets are highly adaptable for just about any environment that requires a long-range rotor,” Johnson says. “Regardless of a site’s water pressure, topography, size or shape, these rotors are up to the challenge.”
