The RainDrop’s spherical design gives the sprinkler a tight turn radius, allowing it to follow any path of garden hose laid down by the user, winding around trees, flowers, lawn ornaments, etc. The plastic design keeps the products weight down while the centrally located counterweight lowers the sprinkler’s center of gravity, affording enough weight to keep traction on wet grass. By using a lightweight, flexible hose, the sprinkler is afforded greater maneuverability by reducing the amount of resistance from a standard garden hose. The oscillating watering arm allows it to be used just as effectively in a neutral position, unlike existing traveling sprinklers on the market which must move forward to provide even water coverage.
