“I’m a huge fan of the Hunter I-20 rotor due to the way the nozzles are easily installed. I also like its flow stop. It’s great during an installation and it’s a helpful feature when doing inspections and having to change nozzles.”

“Our rotor of preference is the Rain Bird 5004 PRS. With the PRS feature the sprinkler will deliver water more evenly and efficiently than a standard model, thus saving the end user money on the water bill and improving the quality of the lawn. Also, the rain curtain nozzle design gives superior water distribution.”

“Hunter MP Rotators are my choice. They have great distribution uniformity, they’re efficient and reduce water usage. They’re great for conservation alternatives to conventional sprays and rotors.”
