Orbit 58308 Tripod Base with Brass Impact

Tripod with Brass Impact

Ideally, you want your garden to grow and your lawn green. Vegetables and fruits grow fast, which means you need to constantly change your irrigation solutions. The Orbit tripod base with brass impact sprinkler aims to solve that problem. It is perfect for large lawns and growing gardens. It towers over tall plants and features a brass impact head that’s capable of spraying distances up to 100 feet. Totally adjustable, you can set the distance and the arc radius from 0-360 degrees. Coverage is fantastic for everything near and far.

Easy Set-Up

This Tripod has been designed for easy set up and storage. Adjustments only take seconds. The three legs are adjustable from 25 to 48-inches using the ergonomically designed clamps, allowing you to position the tripod at the perfect height without any hassle.

Swivel Attachment

The goose neck hose attachment means no awkward fiddling with hose connections. It’s ideally angled to connect in seconds, using a gasket sealed, brass twist connection. Storage is simple too. The entire unit folds up nicely to a compact size and stores well.

Anti-Tipping

This tripod has been designed to resist tipping and keep your sprinkler watering for long periods of time. Using heavy-duty metal construction, the tripod legs become firmly planted on the ground, resisting the force of the powerful spray created by the brass impact head.

I like this, it does NOT tip over, the sprinkler I have used for about 3 yrs now and with good results. The ONLY MInor problem with this sprinkler is this: If you have low water pressure, or say you have 3 or 4 hoses hooked up at the same time, sometimes, it will not cycle properly, it will get to the end and just stit there, creating a big wet spot. But compared to many of the other stands I have used and their cheapness or tipiness, I like it.

The idea behind the tripod base is a good one. However, except for the tripod base itself, the rest of the workmanship and performance is poor. I would have given this a zero star rating if possible.

The female hole that the sprinkler head screws into is tapped too deep. This causes the trip lever on the sprinkler head to drag, stopping rotation. My sprinkler would only rotate clockwise, refusing to return when it hit it's stop.

The sprinkler head itself leaks almost as much water from the mounting stem as it sprays out of the sprinkler head. I called Orbit for a replacement sprinkler head, which according to them was "improved'. Well, this one did spray a bit better and did return at the end of each rotation, but leaked as much, if not more, water from the stem as the original.

I fixed the problem by replacing the brass made in China trash sprinkler head with an all plastic Rainbird unit. This performs flawlessly, has better coverage and a finer spray. It is, without doubt, what Orbit copied when they made their sprinkler head. In this case, imitation was not flattery in any way.

So now I have a tripod sprinkler which does operate as it should, doesn't leak, but cost me $20 to replace the sprinkler head with one that works.

The tripod is a good idea, but figure on spending at least $20 to replace the junk sprinkler head that comes with it.

To sum it up in a few words....typical Chinese trash.

It's a great idea, but needs some work. It looks great, and the features are all wonderful..but you don't get to appreciate them because the base is so light. As soon as the water is turned on, it falls over backward. I got more water on myself than my lawn. I finally gave up and got out my $10 sprinkler. Next time (I haven't given up yet), I'll try and place the legs in bricks or something else to hold it down. It's definetly more trouble than it's worth...but I already spent all that money on it, so I'll try and get some use out of it.

The Orbit 58308 Tripod lawn sprinkler arrived within four days. Amazingly fast delivery that was greatly appreciated. This sprinkler was simple to put together- a child could do it. The parts are strong and very well made. The tripod base much better design and quality than my camera tripod. I disagree with the person who said it was unstable and flimsy. We found this base to be solid and perfect in weight to stay in place as long as you want. Perhaps the person who had trouble did not tighten the screw at the bottom near the hose attachment. This is a no brainer for anyone who has used a tripod before. In addition, we were excited by the very thoughtful design and the color of the base. The wonderful green blends in perfectly with the color of lawn and foliage. Brilliant design and execution. Bravo!!!

This well-made unit solves my hilly terrain problem. It easily stands solid on a 30 degree slope.

I replaced the impact sprayer with Gilmore rotary sprayers that have 80 feet diameter coverage. The tripod is very strong and the hose connection is good. When I set the tripod at the 4 foot height I can cover my 20,000 square foot front yard with 3 sprayers. the Orbit tripod base is an excellent product.

This is a great sprinkler! The coverage is enormous and the tripod feature allows you to sprinkle high and far. The original sprinkler head I received was defective but Orbit sent me a no hassle replacement. This is a great alternative to an underground sprinkler system.

These sprinklers will work well, but they do have a few quirks. For example, don't tighten the collar at the hose connection too tightly, or it will strip off the pipe from the sprinkler, thereby ruining the sprinkler. I had that happen once, but got a replacement sprinkler from the vendor. I got several of these last year, and more this year, as I have a very large area that needs to be watered, and I did not want to have to move them around too much. And no, they don't tip over if you use any common sense about placing them on slopes. you may need to shorten the up-slope leg a bit to level the sprinkler. Also, don't position them on a slope with the water hose pulling them down hill. They have never tipped for me unless I did something stupid.
