For golf course superintendents and their crews, efficiently irrigating around obstacles, on slopes and in windy weather can be a real challenge. Now, Rain Bird Golf has a new low-angle nozzle housing for its 751 Series Rotors that can enhance distribution unifor - mity under these tough conditions, making it easier to direct water under trees or weather stations, fight the wind and improve coverage around mounds and bunkers. Rain Bird's low- angle nozzle housing kit includes a low-angle housing assembly (a low-angle nozzle housing and pre-installed dual spreader nozzle for 751 Series rotors), stator and stator poppet. Install - ing the kit is a straightforward process requir- ing only a flathead screwdriver. Visit Rain Bird, .
