Question about John Deere Gilmour Traveling Sprinkler - 4010j

1 Answer

Sprinkler will not move forward properly

I turn on the water and sprinkler turns and begins to move forward. Shortly thereafter, it stops moving and makes a clicking sounds, the wheel attempts to move forward but actually makes this clicking noise and moves backwards. It continues to do this from this point on. I took it apart and all of the gears appear fine. Does it need greased? Anyone with similar problem and the solution will be appreciated.

I have 2 John Deere 4010 traveling sprinklers and they both do the same thing. I took them apart and the plastic worm gear has flat spot on them. I am having difficulty finding replacement parts.

Orbit traveling sprinkler won't move wheels turn when in neutral but not on high or low setting worked fine last night now nothing!!


I have a brand new orbit traveling sprinkler and the wheels won't move - they're frozen. The directions say to "Pull out the stopper underneath the sprinkler between the back wheels ..." and there is a white knob attached to a spring. When I try adjusting that, the wheels stay locked, frozen, won't move. What am I doing wrong?

Orbit traveling won't move


I just had the same thing happen to me. You have to turn the arms counter clockwise...opposite of the tightening bolts, and have them pointing in opposite directions to get it to turn. If the unit moves backwards, turn them another 180deg to the opposite directions, and it should go forward.

My John Deere traveling sprinkler is moving backwards all of a sudden. How do I get it to go forwards


The wheels are driven by the spinning of the water wand. Turning the tips so the wand spins either clockwise or counter clockwise will determine which direction your sprinkler will travel. If it's going backwards, turn the tips so the wand spins in the opposite direction it is spinning now.

My Hunter PGP ADJ Sprinkler Head will no longer move (turn in an arc)


Once a PGP stops rotating, it must be replaced. The gears that drive it are not replaceable.
