that's a good point from boots... I've seen these gears stripped where they couldn't be adjusted anymore...

but if it's going to always be a 360 no matter what I still do not think it matters which one you use

The original Hunter rotors had a friction clutch and fixed arcs of coverage. The 360s had extra reliability, because you could not strip the gears, or alter the arc, no matter what.

a company I used to work for would use the 360 just because it saved timed when you are installing a lot of them... you don't have to set them when you install them or adjust later on

The thought I had was that the 360 adjustables travel in one direction, then they stop for a short time, then they begin to move in the opposite direction, then get to the end of the 360 degree path and stop again before changing directions and so on and so on. I was thinking that the area of grass that is by the stop point would receive more water then the rest of the path. Make sense?
If that's not the issue, why does Hunter make the same head in a non-adjustable version? What is the benefit?

Description says 40 to 360 degrees on the adjustables

i thought the hunter adjustable would not rotate a full 360 degrees

If you only run it for a couple of minutes the watering could be uneven because they are slow and could have favored one side.... if they are on for more than a couple minutes it shouldn't make a difference

360 vs. Adjustable

I have a number of heads that need to rotate 360 degrees. Currently I have the Hunter adjustable heads that rotate 360 in one direction, stop and then reverse direction for another 360 degrees. Is there any advantage to replacing them with the 360 degree heads that (I assume) don't rotate back and forth?
