Question about Nelson Sprinkler: Traveling Tractor

Open Question

My Nelson Tractor Sprinkler stopped traveling. It moves forward for a short time and then stops and periodically clicks. It is as if a gear is broken. We have tried to open up the casing, but so far we have not been able to get to the part that seems to be broken. We love this sprinkler. I have another one that has been working for about 25 years. The one that is broken in only about 10 years old, but hasn't been used much. It is a huge chunk of metal, and I must repair it. NOT OK to throw such a fine thing into the metal recycle! Thanks!

My tractor sprinkler was running fine and then suddenly stopped. What should I look for as the problem?


My sprinkler did (something like) this a couple of times (very infrequently) - the arms seemed "seized" (cannot rotate clockwise or counter clockwise) but, I was able to get them moving again by picking up the sprinkler (a couple of inches) by the sprinkler arm T-pipe. Picking it up this way, vertically, seemed to "un-stick" the arms.

Of course, if your sprinkler is very old (12 years?) the gear box may be worn, it would cost about a quarter to a third as much as a brand new sprinkler to replace. You can find the parts you need by reading the question about where to get parts at FixYa.

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.
