    yesterday i went to move 8 heads on a commercial account. they cut a new road through the back of the property and the rotors really just need to move about 15 feet to the new curb. no problem....easy ill just take the sneaker and........well i dug up several of the heads and they are on swing pipe. follow the swing pipe for over 20 feet. still havent found the lateral line.

    dont do that. hello are you listening? swing pipe is for 2- 5 feet max. epic landscape, you should be ashamed of your work.

    Depends. The way you are describing it would make it seem like they should've just put the lateral line in closer. If you have one head and another pull to make, there's no reason why you can't run a normal rotor on a 3/8" line as the feeder, though I keep 1/2" because it's cheaper.
