    Well since i was doing the blow out I'm not sure if the head was still working..It was on a driveway/street zone.I had to grab the camera for this...

    From what I observed, the pgp was still in its working order.Still turning a 180'.
    Nozzle looked intact...

    take it fwiw....

    pgp=takes a licking....and keeps on ticking.
     
  3. Are you blowing it out CSR? I've see some beat up PGPs still working. What gets them yanked by me is leaking seals and when they quit going down.

    I have seen lots of those with the turrets all chewed up by edgers, trimmers, and mowers. They keep going and going and going...you know the rest of the story.

    I have been away for a few weeks so I haven't been following the CSR saga. Are you moving down south for the winter?

    We just blew two of our big boys..both have I-20 Ultra 6" stainless heads,
    problem zero..that's about a 150 heads. Not bad performance, I'd say.:cool2:
     
  7. Cut the top off a I-20 like that and 99% of the time you will have no flow because of the flow stop mechanism.

    At least you're not flooding!:laugh: Lot to be said for spring start up..check the heads in advance
    of the mowers for height.
