Why do they have a thing that breaks up the flow of water so it’s released in bursts, rather than a constant stream?
stumped an entire community
the mechanism has a spring and a hammer that uses the water pressure to turn the sprinkler around. so each time the hammer hits the spray in bounces back and springs forward to turn the sprinkler. quite clever really
I think the real question here is: why doesn’t rain fall out of clouds in a constant stream?
you love it really.
Farmers, or gardeners?
I don’t think farmers have that on their sprayers these days, but gardeners do on their sprinklers.
they do (just seen one on tour de france coverage)
Farmer mate of mine is a farmer and he just said he has loads of these, fucking loves them
hang on, is this a damned cycling thread?
no no, not the cycling tour de france. The farmer/sprinkler tour de france.
sprinkler is a funny word
Did the sprinkler soak the peloton? Like a unsuspecting substitute during their halftime warmup?
I might start calling my knob a “sprinkler”
sadly not. Lovely view of it from the helicopter though.
