It reduces the risk of undermining and can take on bell holing, sloping, trenching and finishing applications. It blasts a 0-degree stream of water that oscillates to create a 15-degree wedge. As water flows, the rotor spins, forcing the rocker assembly to move back and forth, creating the oscillation movement. This combination provides the safety of a rotating nozzle with the force of a straight-line tip, making it a smaller nozzle with the same impact as nozzles with higher gpms. 952-808-3640;
