Are there any "tricks of the trade" on how best to remove the nozzles from RB, Hunter, Nelson, Toro, WM, etc. rotors without damaging the nozzle and without disfiguring the hole in the nozzle?

Thanks for your help!

The trick is to use a remote. Lossen the screw with the zone on . Shut it off once the nozzle pops out. Then install ya new nozzle.

DITTO Fire it on with remote, grab stem and hold, loosen screw, while still holding stem do a quick on/off with the remote blasting it out.

With the right head, use the flow shut off for even more convenience. (5k, I20? PGPSuperUltra?)

A lot of the time, you just got to get in there with the needle-noses and yank it; you know about that, don't you, Matt?

Since most heads in the ground here dont have a flow switch, yes, I know very well.

With rotor nozzles coming 6-10 per rotor, I usually wont go back to the vehicle for needle nozers... Just pry out with whatever rotot tool is in pocket, (usually both in-hand) and toss it. I could probably install rotors for 3 months with the stockpile of nozzles in current inventory.

Nozzles are free, don't worry about damaging it.

They wouldn't know what to do with them anyway.
