Low Angle Nozzle

What determines whether I should be ordering (using) a low angle nozzle versus a regular angle nozzle for a Hunter Rotor?

I am new to this so I hope this is the right place. I need a low angle nozzle to spray water across a dirt road where our haul trucks run. The sprinkler I am currently using sprays too high and hits them in the window forcing them to keep their windows up. The water spray needs to shoot far enough to cover both lanes of traffic at a low angle. What do you recommend?

are you using rotors or pop-ups?
If using fixed sprays try mp rotors
If using rotors use the blue nozzels,the srpay at a lower pattern but you will still have to adjust the arch a little depending on your flow pressure.

If you're doing a lot of hauling on a dirt road, you might look into an old-fashioned water truck. A number of construction roads are just too wide to effectively sprinkle.

Thank you for the responses. We do use fixed heads on our sprinklers. Where can I learn about mp rotors?

One could avoid water in the vehicle windows by using tall risers for the sprinkler heads.
