The RainBird T-Bird T-40 sprinkler system is a gear-driven rotor system that accommodates various sprinkler nozzles. The T-40 sprinkler nozzle can be adjusted to increase or decrease the arc while the sprinkler is in use. Depending on how the system is installed, the arc can be adjusted between 30 degrees and 350 degrees. RainBird T-Bird T-40 sprinkler nozzles have a vandal collar which prevents the arc from being changed accidentally.
