Toro MultiMatrix Rotor Pop-Ups

 

Description:

I have not tested the MultiMatrix Rotor. Based on what I have heard this rotor has so-so performance and reliability. The MultiMatrix features a clever nozzle design which uses a set of 7 built-in nozzles to create various flows and radii without the need to install or remove nozzles. The trajectory angle is adjustable so the same rotor can give flat, low angle, and standard arcs. The nice thing about this head is that you always have the right nozzle you need because they're all built-in! My only concern with this head would be that in areas with high wind the multiple streams of water might see some wind distortion. For now I would recommend not exceeding head-to-head coverage with this rotor and I would avoid using it in high wind areas.

Note: Remember that the distance between rotor heads should never be greater than the PSI. Therefore rotors operating at 35 PSI should not be spaced farther apart than 35'.
