Toro Waterbird Mini Sprinklers for Irrigation www.turf.net.au

The Toro range of custom made agricultural mini-sprinklers are the result of continuous consultation between engineers, growers and
dealers to minimise water consumption while increasing yield.

History

The Waterbird Mini Sprinklers were developed in South Australia over 40 years ago as a replacement for overhead sprinklers.

In 2006, Toro launched aerofoil technology, revolutionising the Waterbird sprinkler design to minimise dry spots and improve the distribution pattern.

Toro’s patented pressure compensating diaphragm assembly is released in 2010 providing greater stream control, improved uniformity over wide operating pressures and increased radius.

Today, the range continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of growers in Australia and over 50 countries worldwide with similar growing conditions.
