Mini rotors

I am reading about mini rotors from Hunter and Rain Bird, they were terrible years ago.
What about now, did they correct the problems or keep on selling same junk?


MP rotators don’t work in my case…

Something is not right. MP's have varying distance depending on the model 1000-3000. I have yards where my MP's are throwing 27ft.

Call a professional.

20 inches or 20 ft?

If you can't get 20' from a MP2000 then you have a pressure problem. MP rotators need pressure to work properly.

Problem is, from the other thread, that he only looks at RB stuff (17' on thhe "rotators") instead of looking at MP ROTATORS that are rated to 20', not 20"

Come on bavarian, you are reminding me of one of these...



instead of one of these...



Except, and I can guarantee, that I wouldnt give you "the business end of my stick" like I would of the first pic!

As far as I know, they didn't change anything to fix the two problems I had. And I cannot tell you how many will fail, because I do not know. Buy 'em, put 'em in, deal with whatever happens. This ain't rocket surgery. Right AI?

Cuz RB doesn't make an MP. They make an RR. :-) Adjustable vs. fixed patterns.

I've used both. I have the RR in my front yard because the lawn is a simple rectangle. They spin faster and seem to put out more GPM than the MP.

In other peoples yards I use the MP.
