    I know that probably nobody else here uses them (we use them in conjunction with QCV systems) but I'll pass the info along anyway. They've turned into junk with parts falling off and even disintegrating. We're returning all to our suppliers and gonna look at a different one.

    Nelson makes some nice 1" Impacts. I'm sure you have tried them already.

    Don't you guys keep repairing the existing impact heads? Good ones should be maintainable forever. Maybe a retirement sideline for Purp?

    Never tried the Nelson impacts. They've normally not been available through our supplier. Our supplier stopped carrying the Buckner impacts and when they switched to WeatherTec the problems of reliability started.

    The district has declined to send me for rebuild training three times so we just replace them... and no... I won't take it up as a retirement project. :)
