I speak from a wholesalers perspective. The K2 rotors water your turf about as well as concrete brick. The heads are most often failing for one thing or another, and not to mention their water dispersion. Most people have believed the rumor that the same engineer designed the K2 / the Pro Plus and the Hunter PGP. But in fact, the only similarity is the tripping mechanism. It is the same in all heads (K-rain Pro-Plus and Hunter PGP). It was designed by a Toro engineer and it was adopted by Hunter in their PGP (if memory serves me correctly, so don't quote me).

If I had a choice, I would choose the PGP over any K-Rain products. Hunter is the number one seller of rotors for about 16 years now (Rain-Bird is a close second). As far as the PGP versus the I20, well there are some differences, but not enough to warrant a major decision. The main difference is the water shut-off feature, and another is the top of the head has a larger cap and rubber cover. I also believe there is a higher pop-up height (not real sure about this one). As far as the transmission / drive motor, if I am not mistaken, it is the same as the PGP.

Best of luck with your decision. <><

I agree but I really wonder if the coverage is less uniform. My feelings are there has to be a tradeoff for the longer throw.

I have used both hunter and Krain product and personally like hunter by far. Not scientific just based on my experience

HUNTER I20 vs KRAIN K2

which is a better unit k2 or the hunter i20 ..the hunters are alittle bit more money but i don't mind spending it if that saves me from pulling them back out in a few yrs....

also does it restrict the flow to the say I20 if i use the funny pipe instead of hooking the directly to the pipe via riser?
