SOURCE: my nelson travling sprinkler wont move, just cicks

I* am certainly not an expert repair technition but I do own a Nelson traction sprinkler and did the following to mine.

I've not checked but I doubt seriously that the transmission is only ten dollars and I doubt if you can spray oil into the axles that it will last very long. The transmission is plastic and nylon and surely gets brittle over time so do not go nuts forcing it. The transmission is held to the casting with hexhead slotted screws. I did not even try to loosen them with a screwdriver as you will only strip the slots-use a socket wrench-they are surely stuck. With the bolts out the transmission is easy to remove. I could open the case about 1/4 inch before it would not go any further. I think you need to remove the part onto which the T shaped piece that the arms attach to. My sprinkler is quite old and I did not want to disassemble too much so with a clean dull old knife it was easy to apply marine waterproof grease to the gears and the axels. I then, reinstalled the transmission and hand turned the arms in both high and low gear to distribute the grease.
I works fine now with water and should last for another 20 years.

Nelson Sprinkler Rain Train Traveling Sprinkler will only go backwards , i have the arms going in the right direction...please help


If it's going backwards, and assuming you didn't take it apart and put it together wrong, then the arms aren't going in the right direction. Looking down from the top, my unit should be moving clockwise if it's set up correctly. In any case, switch it so the water pushes the arms in the other direction. the transmission is pretty straightforward - if it's going in the wrong direction then the arms are spinning in the wrong direction.

I have a Nelson Pulsating sprinkler and can't figure out how to make it go all the way around


See if the stop that makes the sprinkler reverse by hitting the adjusting rings can be lifted up so that it doesn't hit the adjusting rings.

Need parts for traveling tractor where can I get them?


Have you tried their website? These sprinklers are relatively expensive units as I remember. Well made and well worth fixing. Usually nylon gears with stainless steel shafts. Parts should be available through Nelson. Google: Nelson Traveling Sprinklers and see what sites pop up. If this has been helpful, please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
