The Toro Company

Dec. 11, 2013

The T5 Series is packed with innovative features including an industry-leading 5″ pop-up height, advanced nozzle technology, superior, debris-tolerant seal, and more.  And now, Toro is enhancing this revolutionary rotor with the new RapidSet™ feature.  RapidSet offers a quick and effortless way to adjust rotor arc settings — with NO TOOLS required!

RapidSet technology works by simply turning the rotor past its current trip points.  Turn the head clockwise to shift the entire arc; turn the head counter-clockwise to increase the arc pattern.  A built-in “slip clutch” protects the gears when making these simple adjustments.

The T5 rotor has a full five inches of pop-up height that sits in the same footprint as competitive 4-inch models.  One inch can make a big difference — especially when replacing older heads that have settled over time.  That means it’s easy to retrofit and upgrade existing irrigation systems without having to do any extra digging — you simply pull out the old sprinklers and drop in the taller T5 rotors.  The taller pop-up height also allows grass to grow longer and roots to grow stronger — producing greener, healthier lawns.

The T5 also features a high-performance, patent-pending Airfoil™ nozzle design.  Toro’s cutting-edge design produces higher distribution uniformity than competitive rotors.  The Airfoil™ technology creates a low pressure zone under the nozzle stream to gently glide water downward for close-in watering that won’t wash away seeds, making it ideal for grow-in applications.

Contractors have quickly embraced the Toro T5 Series Rotors because of their ease of installation, versatility and reliable performance.  Now, with the new RapidSet option, they can reduce their installation time and discover a better way to install.
