rotor range

I am replacing all the rotors on my current system. They have been placed from 18 - 20 feet apart. I would really like to use the Rainbird 5000 series rotors. There are 4 heads per zone with about 65 pounds of pressure from the main. Are they adjustable enough to minimize the throw to 20 feet? Thanks in advance.

I forget the specs on the 5000 but you can figure that you can reduce them by about 25 percent. Also consider low tragectoy nozzles.
Thanks,

I wouldn't reccommend using the 5000s for that short a throw. The Rainbird 3500's are ideal at this range and would be cheaper to purchase.
