Both the Mini-8 and Super 800 (CR500 in Irritrol) were outsourced rotors purchaded from another manufactur while Toro was going through the design and implemenation of their T-rotor platform. Agreed that both Super 800 and Mini-8's had higher failure rates than accepatable from a company like Toro. The T5 (3/4" inch) and T7 rotors have proven to be a very effective answer. Higher pop-up, utilizes air-foil technology for superior perfomance(see stream staightners and honeycomb), has a five-year warranty, and come with nozzle trees that include low-angle for the shorter Mini-8 requirements. Precison Spray (past IA New Prodcut of the Year)and Precision Rotary Nozzles use less water but are more efficient. The new Precision Soil Sensor (IA's just announced 2012 New Product of the Year) is wireless and works on all controllers monitoring soil moisture. Give your local rep a call and ask him to demo some of this new technology at your place.
