Question about Nelson Sprinkler: Traveling Tractor

2 Answers

Tractor sprinkler, (traveling sprinkler)

I was wondering if anyone knew how I could properly make the stopper plunger stay on all the time. I dont use the plastic thing to stop it because I use a pump and it keeps doing it on its own. Im on a pump and it almost blew it. luckily the hose blew but still cost me 105 bucks.
Any solutions?

    Hey Lemmor, you werent very clear. I tried to take out my plunger and it broke. I was very careful when I took it apart and found out it couldnt be done. I just wedged it open and duct taped it up. Thanks for nothing

    Thanks Darell,
    I ended up taking it back and getting another one.I realized the first one was a return. On my new one I found the right size coupling, cut it in half, then put it on and wedged it it with snap rings cut in half then I duct tape the outside just in case. Been working great for a week now. Thanks again.

I made mine stay on by wrapping a plastic tie wrap around the shaft of the stopper between the stopper head & where the stopper shaft enters the housing. It must be wide enough to keep the plunger/stopper from going into the housing. Hope this helps. God Bless You!!! Darrell

If it has already has no use to you then why not remove the stopper for good.
or remove the rubber/plastic stopper inside of it!

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?
