Full Circle Rotor?

Does anyone make a full-circle rotor the size of the RB 3504 and the Hunter PGJ?

Thanks,

Mex

Wet Boots....

....I guess, for the same reason they make FC 5004's, etc.

I certainly respect your opinion....what am I missing here?

I have a job going in that requires a full circle pattern of about 40 feet in diameter and since there are 24 of these, I thought I would see if there is a full circle mid-size rotor available.

Thanks / Regards,

Mex

I dont think any manufactuer sells enough mini,s to justify offerin a full circle version.

It's more or less a question of return on investment. Part circle heads must outsell full-circle-only heads by 20-to-1 or more. No one installs mini-rotors because they want to do the best possible work.

product literature fro the pgj say it adjust out to 360, as does the literature for the RB 3504. so you set your end point and it will travel 359 in one direction and then go 359 in the other direction and keep going back and forth...

Admittedly, a head without a reversing mechanism will likely have a better track record.
