Your traveling sprinkler will travel an average of 0 to 37 feet per hour depending on what speed you select: HIGH, LOW, or NEUTRAL.
Nelson Big GunĀ® Sprinklers are ideal for a wide range of applications. With a full range of models available (see The Original Big GunĀ® brochure), flow rates of 30-1200 GPM (6.8-275 m3/hr) can be achieved with maximum uniformity to match a variety of needs.
Most only go approximately 60 feet per hour! The back wheels push the front wheel, which guides the tractor along the hose. When the sprinkler reaches the end of its path, it activates its automatic shut-off.

ANSWER : They are a standard width.

I would like my sprinkler to move faster ( it is in high gear)
Will it go faster if I cut some off of the swing arms?

If not is there anyway to make it go faster/

ANSWER : The speed is directly related to the amount of water pressure you have. More pressure = more speed. If you are using a 1/2″ hose move to a 5/8″ hose. I do not think cutting off the arms will have any measurable effect on the speed. I know of no other way to speed it up.
