I have had great success with Hunters PS Series Side Strip spray but wish it would tune down just a little more

Rainbird has 5' nozzles, just make sure you use the blue filter

I had the same problem with long narrow strips and tried several
attempts to correct this problem.
I tried using the sst(side-strip) nozzles(rain-bird), but found
that they did not even shoot out in front of the nozzle 2ft, much
less the desired 4-5ft in front that I needed. They did shoot side
to side in a strip spray, but if your heads are on the outer edge
of the strip of turf your trying to water, than these strip nozzles
are not very effective.
After much resolve, I found the the 2.5 inch ranibird body, with a (u-series) nozzle to do the trick. The arc is reduced due to the low
pop-up, and the u-series nozzle give you a double spray pattern, with
one of the spray patterns close in to the head so that you dont have to worry about adjusting arc from head to head,,only side to side.
Hope this makes since,,,,, worked for me

Toro nozzles have male threads.Hunter and Rain Bird spray heads have female threads. SST is an abbreviation for side strips. For example: if you have a strip of lawn or landscaping that is afew feet wide and a larger number of feet in length, the spray will be more concentrated to that area. You still want to maintain head to head coverage as much as possible. And yes toro does manufacture them. I hope that helps.

I tyhink the answer is no. I am 95% sure that the threads are opposite between brands but I bet toro makes the same type of products. Check sprinkler warehouse or even your local home depot.

Okay I check and they are Toro 570 series pop up's. Can I use Hunter or SSt on the Toro?

SST nozzles may be the answer to your situation. They spray 4ft out and depending on the size 9 to 15ft along the strip.

Hunter makes a short radius spray head and a lot of spray nozles are interchangable as well as they are cheap.

Thanks for the replies Paterib and Tom.
They pop up, and I will check on the brand. The distance I need is less then 4 ft.

If the are spray heads, you can simply turn the small adjustment screw on top to decrease the distance.

However, its rare that this adjustment will satisfy. You are much better off replacing the nozzle. Most heads have nozzles that come in 15, 12, 10, and 8 foot distances.
