    Toro, think again, ever wonder why there are some many more contractors installing Hunter and Rainbird then Toro! Just my 2 cents worth.

    turfnh2oman: do you use VAN's on every head that you install? You have got to be kidding me. The D.U.s on VANs are the worst out there. It's bad enough to be using plastic nozzles anyways.

    I swear, Peter... I think you and my dad should get together and create a business on proper irrigation techniques.

    His department should be proper design and installation practices, and yours should be installation/repair practices.

    With yalls combined 60+ years of experience, and a complete knowledge of every aspect of the industry, you guys would be the dominating force in anything irrigation.

    Oh wait, I forgot, everyone else out there just wants to do a half/assed job, so maybe its not such a good idea:)

    Just a thought.... if Toro is so good then why does Hunter have the number one selling gear head and Rainbird the number one selling spray head? Why does Toro just buy up other company's in order to try and get quality products, they can't seem to come up with a product that works and change their design ever few years....talk about red flags!!!! :dizzy:
