The Q&A Archives: Vigoro GEar Drive Sprinkler

Question: Bought a Vigoro Gear Drive Sprinkler from HD. Is there an owner's manual for this thing somewhere on line? Can it be adjusted to cover an arc rather than a full circle?

Answer: Here's how to change your sprinkler from a circle to an arc:
First, find the left start postion:
Do this by 1) rotating the turret with your fingers to the right (clockwise) until it stops. 2) Rotate the turret with your fingers to left (counter clockwise) until it stops. This is the left start position. The sprinkler will begin spraying from this point and will rotate clockwise.

TO CHANGE THE ARC SETTING 3) Find the left start position in steps 1 and 2, while holding the turret (so that it does not rotate), insert the key or flat blade screwdriver into the arrow slot at the center of the turret.4) Turn the key counter clockwise to increase the ARC. 5) Turn the key clockwise to decrease the ARC. BE CAREFUL: Don?t force the ARC indication arrow under 30? orover 360? setting. Follow steps 1-5 to adjust the ARC setting with the sprinkler ON.

Hope this information helps!
