    Not to fond of their fix spray bodies either. Seems after 2 or 3 months after install, they fail to pop dow.

    That's why for fixed sprays, most municipal jobs spec for RB 1800 series bodies here in California.

    I totally agree. We have been replacing them like wildfire. At two buildings next to each other weve replaced about 25 of them within two years. The heads are only 4 years old and work terrible!!!! hard to adjust, bad spray pattern, and not durable.

    Hate Toro. I honestly don't think I have one good word about any of their sprinkler products that I have ever used or worked on

    I just got a 5500.00 installation by printing this thread and giving it to a customer. I was not the low bidder but after he read this post the low bidder was a toro installer, too bad, was this ethical ? after all it wasnt my words.. LOL

    Do we all get a commission for helping to make the sale?!

    Good job. Never would have thought of that.

    Well I goofed, meant to quote turfman59.

    Well good for you. The toro company has been messing up the landscape industry with their marketing mite rather than just there equipment.
