The T5 RapidSet is the first commercially-available ¾” residential and commercial rotor specifically engineered to use the slip clutch as the means to make consistent and accurate arc adjustments with no tools needed. The ease of adjusting the arc in real time, whether the rotor is dry or in operation, eliminates the hassle of having to estimate arc patterns, make small tweaks with a tool, and wait for the rotor to complete a cycle before starting the sequence again. This straightforward action is unmatched in its ability to make adjustments easier, and installations faster.
The T5 RapidSet has the same physical body geometry as competing ¾” rotors with 4” pop-up heights, meaning it can serve as a drop-in replacement for competing rotors during system retrofits or repairs. However, the T5 features a 5” pop-up height. This one inch improvement in height allows for better clearance for taller turf or the inevitable “sunken” head.
The design of Toro’s exclusive Airfoil nozzles is such that a zone of low pressure is created just below the main stream, which gently guides the water downward; the benefit being better distribution uniformity (DU) without the trade-off of washing out seeds in the immediate vicinity of the rotor. In fact, performance tests have shown the T5 RapidSet as having a leading distribution uniformity (DU) of 82 percent. RapidSet models include standard and effluent configurations of the 5” lawn, 12” high-pop, and shrub with a combined ½” and ¾” inlet.
