We use a combination of all products. Hunter PGP/PGJ for rotors, Rainbird 1800 series for sprays, Irritrol jar-top valves, Hunter PRO-C clocks. We're going to convert to Hunter Institutional Spray series here shortly.

I go with 100% rainbird..........I even like the new valve boxes they came out with.

Now if my local irrgation house could keep them in stock

RainBird all the way. Can't get what I want in RainBird, Hunter is my next choice

I started off using Hunter and rainbird. I now use Nelson and love them. the rotors come with a 30' nozzle already in, setting the stops is a snap and on top of it all they come with a 5 year UNCONDITIONAL Warranty. On all material.
There all good products, Nelson, hunter etc. Its all in the design and installation

I'll second that Toro residential sucks. Jar tops never want to open with air pressure. They make fall winterizations (blow outs) miserable.

OOps, forgot,
Rain Bird everything - 5000's, 1800's, controllers, valves. Wouldnt have it any other way.

I use mostly Hunter heads and valves, but often Rainbird controllers. For fixed spray, I use a combo of Hunter Pro Sprays but generally with Rainbird nozzles. Anyone ever notice that Hunter's adjustable fixed spray nozzles radius to the left side of the pattern is less than to the right??? Rainbird VANs don't seem to have this problem.
