I just did a bid like that today...35 x 25...he wanted 1 head in each corner and 1 in the middle of each long side.....I declined and offered to install 2 spray head zones for the same price.

I think I talked myself out of that job, but at least he won't call when the "doughnuts" appear....

so a 68' x 40' rectangle?

4 heads in each corner throwing 40', 2 heads midway along 68' side throwing 34' would give better coverage.

the length is 68ft, width 40ft, distance from the left and right heads to middle one 33ft. all three get coverage to the heads from the ones behind them. the prob is dryness from the "three" to the roadway. like i mentioned before range within 10ft of the heads..thanks tom

a typical hunter problem. do the other heads overlap each other? i.e. each head should be getting covered by two other heads. 3 heads in a rectangle area doesn't seem like good coverage. what are the measurements of the area?

rainbird 5000 rotos have very good nozzles that water well close into the head, but it sounds like your sprinkler head layout is less than ideal.
