    I just did my first install with the 6" I-20's.

    50 heads.

    We had to warantee 6 of them.

    I'm not at all impressed.

    what was wrong with them?

    we have had stellar results out of the i-20's we install. by far the most reliable head we have worked with.

    I've loved the 4" I-20's.

    We had one 6" I-20 break in half when lifted up to install a nozzle. The rotating head snapped off the shaft.

    5 others leaked horrible between the shaft and the rotating head. Twisting the stainless steel shaft slowed the leaks, but it was still too much.

    Hopefully hunter gets it right, because 6" pop rotors are great.

    We use the 6" I-20s and I-40s for replacing 4" models where it's easier to raise the sprinkler instead of digging up the whole swing joint, raising it and then installing a new 4" model. They have worked awesome for us in this respect.

    Last week I had three 4" I-20s out of a case not rotate after they were installed. Some type of manufacturing glitch. At least Hunter replies when I send them an email. :)

    They're basically the same unit only with a longer body case and riser.
