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.

Sprinkler arms came off and water shoots straight up


You just have to screw the arms back on. There is a plastic white bolt that is attached to the arm it screws on to the tractor.

The unit runs backwards


Hi, loosen the arms and rotate them so when turned on the spray arms spin the opposite direction to what they do now. Regards Phil.

WHY IS MY RAIN TRAIN MOVING BACKWARDS


Hi there ... have you posted this question before? Not important ... I answered this question yesterday ...

ASSURE that the water arms are pointing in the proper direction. Normally, the arms should turn in a clock-wise direction to make the "tractor" go forward. If yours are going the other way, the tractor will travel backward. If yours ARE moving in a clock-wise direction and your tractor is going backward, reverse so the arms travel in a counter clock-wise direction. If it STILL goes backward, no matter which direction you are spinning, return the device to the store where you got it and ask for assistance.

I have this very device (though not this model number), though mine is LOTS older than yours is. I can make it go backward but it doesn't necessarily want to straddle the hose in reverse. All I do is reverse the direction the arms spin and vo-la ... it goes backward. BTW, I always store my tractor with the transmission in neutral to avoid damage by rough handling of others.

My rain train will not spin and travel consistantly. Water will come out of the spouts, but it will often just sit there and spray water in the same place - not spinning or traveling. I have lubricated...
