I was speaking of pressure/volume to properly run them
Oh, yeah more than enough. I need to lower my water pressure actually.
Now that you mention it, I might just stay with MP. Since it did stop my water hammer due to the lower pressure coming out of the heads.
The slower application rate may be a plus if you have clay soil or slopes. The MPs apply about 0.4 inches/hr and the R-Vans about 0.7.
I prefer the R-Vans as they are easier to adjust and stand up to wind better.
More water means more water pressure is needed because of the higher output volume. So for an issue of low water pressure, MP's are still a better solution.
MPs, R-Vans and the old standby the Toro 300 all need good pressure in the 45-65 range to operate correctly.
Low pressure and any of these-especially the MPs-do a poor job with uniformity.
Volume is another story-if volume is limited you can fit more MPs on a zone than R-Vans.
Just use maxipaws with 07 nozzles. Bring back the impacts!
I've used both MPs and 'Streamies' at 60 psi, no misting problems. Like we've all said, 'if you got 'da water, the SR is the finest, most even (and most beautiful) rotor in the world!' I used the 02 nozzles. The only lag, and typical of Toro, is they don't make the 4" head with a LDC, tho the 12" can be gotten with one. That means you have to use the Hunter LDC, which makes for a expensive set-up, but worth it!
Iv tried both on multiple occasions.
I can assure those concerned that both will leave a bad taste in thy mouth.
Iv found a counting of sheep and blessings to work much better.
Of course.... Jim will often teach his philosophy by sarcastic inversion, so....im not countering, but rather, agreeing.
Youd have the poor broad un suspectingly...
hold on phone is ringing..
Capt, a good gator like you should never consider the price...only the quality.
