The 53XXX numbers used above are not all inclusive, there are so many variations I can't keep track of them all! You will find these models in hardware and home improvement stores.

The models above are Toro's commercial/professional spray-type sprinkler series. Typically these models are only available through irrigation supply specialty stores, although I have seen them in retail stores on occasion. The Toro 570Z series has a good reputation among contractors. This product has been around for many years and has been well-proven. It has available all the optional features that are common to top-of-the-line spray type sprinklers.
Be careful if considering the lower pop-up styles. I consider any sprinkler with a pop-up height less than 3 inches unacceptable in most circumstances due to the increased maintenance necessary to trim grass away from the head. I would only use low pop-up heights for bubblers or shrub areas with widely-spaced shrubs and no ground cover.
