No Tools Needed!

Rain Bird has introduced a product line that features both the efficiency of rotary nozzles and the versatility of variable arc nozzles: R-VAN Adjustable Rotary Nozzles. The R-VAN line features an industry first: hand-adjustable nozzles. R-VAN nozzles combine the benefits of rotary nozzles and variable arc nozzles. A low precipitation rate reduces run-off and erosion, and a high level of distribution uniformity, thick wind-resistant streams and larger water droplets ensure efficient performance.

The R-VAN product line currently includes two color-coded models: the black R-VAN1318, with a radius of 13 to 18 feet, and the yellow R-VAN1724, with a radius of 17 to 24 feet. Each model’s arc is adjustable from 45 to 270 degrees.
