Just pointing out the RPS75 exists because the PGP was a success, and for no other reason. If they could make a product with the reliability of Hunter's best efforts, and also include the #1 and #2 nozzles that Hunter left off the PGP Ultra, then they would have something to boast about.

Brass impacts were great. But they weighed so much the horse got tired pulling the wagon.

Ahhh, the golden days of shooting driveway corners, and avoiding vehicle and snowplow damage.

The toro 300 is the only and true stream rotor that holds up against time.

We have so many toro stream rotors in service still. I'll never play around with the settings other then physically moving the body before I replace it if it needs it though. Does anyone stock the plates ?

Tbirds are still badass. They have stood the test of time

pgps... This past week I used my entire week stock of rotors on repairs - 20 rb5000+ , 20 pgp and 10 pgp ultra. I really hate pgj's..

After about 4 or 5 rotor replacements I always stop and flag out the rest and get the approval first before replacing more.. I had a job a few days ago where 22 pgp's were leaking . I gave up like right away and replaced 2. lol.

We had a case with arc disks and seals for the SR, I would think H.D. Fowler would have them, as they are Toro reps. SRs are still my favorites, though the T-Bird was kick butt, and we still have them in service. They will retro to a 5000 series with removing the can. Two of the best!
