Thoughts on small rotors..

I really think that small rotors are the way to go...

Like the RB 3500...Amazing head puts down small amounts of water for those shady spots....Keeps them from getting Moss'd (not randy) up....


My boss strongly thinks a pgp fanned down is the way to go..

I have to convince him in a way where its his idea and he is the one who needs the small rotors..

Mp's just don't seem to match up on precip rates when combined with pgp's...

anyone?

3/4-inch connections for rotor heads are what I want ~ strength

locking up a 3/4 L is the way to go..but man boots that 3500 is top dog of the small rotors IMHO..

the .75 nozzles could shoot 12-15 feet depending on PSI and they did a great job....

no rotor is good enough to justify a flimsy connection

The idea and reason for the small rotors is great. But I don't even carry any on my trucks due to them being so unreliable. I replace way too many 3500s, PGJs, and the older PGMs. They just plain stop turning. I'm done with 'em.

I do like the 3500 better than the PGJ in terms of spray patterns.
