That'll teach you to bad-mouth Lawn Genie
Had a 25% failure rate on Eagle Rotors on initial install a year ago.
Sprinkus is from tx.

LOL... thats why you don't post pics of a product and of it's manuals all over the internet when said product was given to you to test on a confidential basis!
Is that an actual statistic? Where did you get that number from?
From actual install that I was directly involved in. Had loose parts in heads on some, others did not rotate, many others stopped rotating after only a very short time in service.
108 rotors were installed, around 27 had to be replaced. In fact I am still replacing internal units on a regular basis.Good thing that they have a five year warranty when installed with the manufacturer's swing joint.
Did RB step up to the plate and comp your labor for the change-outs? They did for me when the T-Birds failed out of the box.
I believe you. But I don't think RB pulls product for recall when one single contractor has a bunch of heads fail. May just be a bad batch. The .025 failure rate for pulling product for recall is nationwide, and I think you knew that. So unless you know that that variety of head was going out at that same percentage nationwide, I am not sure how your argument applies to the recall conditions I was speaking of....
It's like if you said that Nabisco pulls product if more than 3% of their product has problems and I replied with, "Oh yah! I opened a box of Oreos once and like 30% of the box was rotten!!! So why don't they pull Oreos from the shelf??? Huh?"
Store credit for troubles with initial install.
Product has been discontinued.
Newer rotor internals continue to fail.
Distributor has mentioned that others have had similar problems.
I'm done whining.
I feel much better now.
