Rainbird 5000 adjustment screw

Rainbird states the 5000 rotor has a radius of 25 to 50' . There is also an adjustment screw that can decrease radius by 25%

Does anyone know if the 5000 rotor's min radius 25' is after using adjustment screw, or is the potential min radius 20' by using the adjustment screw?

Hi There - I'm a total irrigation newbie, too. However, I have RB 5000's as well. Until today, I didn't even know there was a specific radius. I have a couple of mine set pretty short. I haven't measured them, though. I'd suspect you could expect 20' - but without a proper nozzle, you're putting a whole lotta water on a small area compared to others. See my (intended) new question in a moment...
