    Perfect start to the season. One truck needs a new transmission. Wonderful.
    Might just look to replace the truck - '97 F150 w/ 242,000 miles. Sadly I just put $1000 into it last week for tires, shocks, and a couple other items.

    I feel ya.... we just had to replace a transmission in a 2007 Chevy 3500. It was about $2700 to pull it and rebuild it. I found out that my damn guys were driving the thing around in Overdrive while towing trailers... they ended up cooking the damn thing. Truck only has 47K miles on it too!

    Tambien,
    Pero,

    The guy that made MPRotators was not thinking about the poor soul who must enter a 90 corner nook, of a house or fence for example, and set the degrees and area of these chinese torture devices.

    It seems, if my memory serves me correct, that I once listened to a story of a contractor whom was installing mptaters "left and right" and then all of a sudden stopped, and returned to "regular rotors" (as the story was labeled).

    Something makes me want to say it had to do with run-time, but I cant say for certain. I do think i remember the switching back to "regular rotors" being caused by customer(s) concerns/preference.

    Any ideas, similar experience?

    I have no problem irrigating nooks with MPRotators or with run times.

    I lost ya man. Dry sets are only good for ballpark approximations during install. All fine tuning adjustments are done with the system running without interruption.
