    Only if you get the female threaded ones.

    Yes, they will, but unless they are already in the ground, why not use Hunter Pro Sprays instead? When you change to MP Rotators, that will make the leaking seals on the 1800s just that more noticeable.

    You have to special order the male threads, at any rate. Toro is male ( on the nozzle side), and therefore the exception.

    Because I use all rainbird products. I have used the rain bird rotory nozzles but I bid a job the other day that specs said hunter mp nozzles. But it did not spec a what type body to use. I would rather use rain bird head if possible.

    The rainbird Mpr is garbage, and shouldn't be used in the same sentence as the hunter mpr

    No it didn't. Usually most plans do though.
