5000 Series Rotors

Take Performance to the Top


The 5000 Series Rotor is a rugged mid-range

gear-drive rotor, offering durability,

performance, and the convenience of arc

adjustment from the top, for residential and

light commercial applications.

This versatile rotor offers a standard rubber

cover and the convenience of reversing full

and part circle operation (up to 360 degrees)

in one unit. And, with a tree of Rain Curtain


nozzles, the 5000 Series Rotor offers excellent

distribution for top-notch efficiency.

All of this, a proven gear-driven design, and

a five-year trade warranty, makes the 5000

Series Rotor one head that will "Take

Performance to the Top.”


The 5000 Series Rotor is available in 4", 6",

12", and Shrub models.

5000/5000 Plus

MPR Nozzles

Achieve Matched Precipitation

Rate Between 25' and 35'

Rain Bird 5000/5000 Plus MPR Nozzles simplify

both the design process and the installation of

rotors, because they reliably deliver matched

precipitation rates within and between rotor

radii from 25' to 35'. Without having to use fixed

arc plates, designers and installers can achieve

matched precipitation rates. Superior flexibility

in arc adjustment minimizes the risks of over- or


5004 UPG

Don't just change out a rotor,

UPGrade it.

The 5004 UPG rotor is designed to upgrade

existing Hunter PGP

™ rotors with the

performance characteristics and feature set of

Rain Bird's 5004 rotor. Additionally, it is faster

and easier to leave the PGP case in the ground

and only change out the main part of the rotor.

UPGrade to the UPG-5004 for:

• Rain Curtain

™ Technology which includes

large droplet size, close-in water, and even


• More reliable and robust performance than the

Hunter PGP

• Rapid installations - the available flow shut-off

feature means the nozzle can be changed

without shutting down the entire zone at

the valve

• Available Matched Precipitation Rate

(MPR) nozzles
