Toro's new DT Series sprinklers are an extremely cost effective golf sprinkler, with many of the advanced, flexible features of the industry leading Toro 800S sprinkler.
The DT range brings together over 40 years of golf irrigation knowledge and the most recent technology advances in water management. The sprinklers' main nozzle is equipped with a selectable trajectory feature that allows for simple adjustment to either 15 or 25 degrees.
The user makes the trajectory selection by simply rotating the nozzle module. By adjusting the main nozzle trajectory, it can better withstand wind or avoid
obstacles. The sprinkler will accept an optional radius reduction screw to further fine-tune the main nozzle radius and the inner nozzle utilizes a helical restrictor that produces larger water droplets to provide superior performance in windy conditions.
"Adjusting the DT sprinkler is so easy and simple that in a matter of seconds you can change between the two angles using a standard tool," said Jim Wright, Product Marketing Manager at Toro. There is no need to disassemble the nozzle base or swap parts, making it very convenient for the user."
Toro DT Series sprinklers come in 2 models-
A full circle only model, or a full and part circle model which can be used to meet all irrigation needs for maximum convenience, labour efficiencies and a lower long term cost of ownership.
In addition, DT sprinklers are also back nozzle capable, providing flexibility for finetuning any watering requirement. The body is made from ABS engineering-grade plastic with indestructible stainless steel and brass fittings. The stainless steel valve seat is built to last and won't need replacing for the life of the sprinkler.
The removable rock screen stops debris before damage occurs and, because it's removable, servicing is fast and easy. The flexibility of the selectable pilot valve allows the user to accommodate multiple pressures on any given course. The DT Series sprinkler will provide a full line of conversion assemblies to easily and economically upgrade any Toro 800S, 700 and 600 Series sprinkler. Our first Toro DT sprinklers have been installed at Templeton Golf Club. Maraenui Golf Club in Hawke's Bay has also selected DTs for their course upgrade beginning mid-2008.
