Toro precision rotating (stream) nozzles

To those whe have used them your thoughts? Adjustability (radius), actual maximum spacing and etc. The good & bad.

At first I really didnt care for them. Like an MP they seem to do better at higher pressures. I think the pros to them are the nice clear heavy streams and low trajectory angle, almost flat. The cons are the intricacy, the limited radius range and they are a little more involved, you need that "wrench" to adjust them than an MP.

The reason I was considering these vs MP's is I have a 20' spacing on a new install. The MP2000 seems to come up short of actual 20' and hard to choke down a 3000 that much. Thought these would be a good fit.

CJ,
can I dial these in for 20'?

I did searches and didn't find much. I guess these haven't caught on.

I've got some MP2000's at 20 feet that do fine. What body are you using? What is your nozzle pressure?

I use 6" PU . Pressure at this site might be as high as I'd like. Static maybe 45

If 45 psi is the street pressure, you are screwed as far as rotators go, and 45 psi static after the backflow preventer, isn't a whole lot better.

There are lots of 6" pops ..... which ones? Do they have checks, PRS? You need to find out this data, there is no need to continue here without it.

At what operating pressure do you feel you can space 20'? I've looked at the Hunter specs but I want real world experience.

I like to see 40-45 PSI to reliably hit 20 feet. If you use a standard RB 1800 with PRS @ 30, you can hit ~18 feet more or less reliably depending on windage. With windage though it is a stretch to hit 20.

The new 1800-SAM-P45 would be a better choice IMO to hit 20' if there is any windage, otherwise I would stick with the Hunter PRS40 if you want to get max radius, or the standard RB 1800 with a PRS30 if you want max radius reduction, and of course all of the above with checks and 6" pop height.

Look back at the tech sheet at 30lbs you should get 17' at 40 and 50lbs. you should be at about 20.5' Also says radius may be adjusted down by up to 25% . FYI there is only one radius available.
