    Has anyone used the Hunter PGJ rotors. They look like a good idea for long narrow lawn instead of sprays.

    We use PGJ's and 3504's from 16' to 20 & 25' area's depending on the situation. We find that they come in quite handy.

    I'm still scared to try the PGJ's after the PGM disaster.

    Rainbird can't seem to perfect their rotors either, so no mini rotors for us.

    We are putting the PGJ guts into some old PGM bodies on two properties. They sure go in easy (short of installing the low drain checks)!

    i am a big hunter fan, but these heads are garbage.

    we are seeing a lot of failures with them... no rotating.
    but thier main problem is that you cannot adjust the radius. the allen screw that screws into the water stream has no affect on the distance the head throws.

    I don't even want to be digging up any of the old PGM's. I'm definately too lazy for that.

    Every failed midsize to small rotor gets swapped for a PGP with us.

    so what do you guys recommend for a 20ftx50ft+ area. I'm keeping my zones pretty tight in terms of gpm. Looking at the specs for th PGJ I can go 21ft @ 1.3 gpm.

    If I did sprayers head to head I'd end up with 3 rows.

    There's always those square-pattern mist head nozzles :p
