RAIN BIRD GOLF’S NEW FULL- AND PART- CIRCLE ROTORS
FEATURE FASTER, EASIER ARC ADJUSTMENTS

Rain Bird® 751 Golf Rotors with Rapid-Adjust Technology
Offer Full- or Part-Circle Irrigation with the Twist of a Screw

TUCSON, Ariz. (August 9, 2010) –-More than ever before, golf courses need irrigation technology that provides top performance, water-efficiency, versatility and value. Now, Rain Bird is helping golf course superintendents and managers make the most of every dollar with Rain Bird’s new Full- and Part-Circle 751 Golf Rotors, featuring Rapid-Adjust Technology and Memory Arc®

As any superintendent knows, a course’s watering needs can change from day-to-day. Rain Bird® 751 Golf Rotors make it possible for superintendents to easily and quickly adjust watering on greens, fairways or roughs as needed. These new rotors offer simple, top-adjustable rotation settings that retain the memory of their part-circle arc setting when shifting between full- and part-circle operations. This unique product is designed to offer quick adjustments for the life of the rotor with just a turn of a screw.  As a result, these new rotors allow superintendents to increase or decrease the watering area with a simple twist of the wrist. However, it’s not necessary to completely replace an existing Rain Bird rotor in order to enjoy the benefits of the new 751 model. According to Lloyd von Scheliha, product manager for Rain Bird’s golf rotors, courses with older Rain Bird rotors currently installed can easily integrate the 751’s Rapid-Adjust Technology.

“Unlike competitive products, Rain Bird New Rotors offer backward-compatibility with every EAGLE Rotor manufactured since 1992,” von Scheliha explained. “That means in many instances, superintendents can simply drop the new Rain Bird 751 internal assembly into their existing rotor cases, saving both time and money.”

In addition to Rapid-Adjust Technology, Rain Bird 751 Golf Rotors offer the performance and durability that superintendents have come to expect from Rain Bird. With larger water droplets and reliable pressure regulation, Rain Bird rotors consistently deliver even distribution for healthier playing surfaces and a lower total cost of ownership.

“These days, everyone wants to make the most of every dollar,” von Scheliha said. “That’s why Rain Bird’s family of golf rotors combines versatility, durability and performance. Our new Rain Bird 751 Golf Rotors build upon that quality reputation by optimizing water consumption, simplifying operation and minimizing replacement, maintenance and inventory costs.”
