replace a Toro 300-01

Hi,

I need to replace a Toro 300-01 Rotor Series. I believe it is about 10 years old and was part of the original professional installation. Can you recommend a replacement?

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks for your response.

I did not see it on Sprinkler Warehouse. Did I miss it? Is there another place you recommend to purchase it from?

Thanks,
Steve

If your system is all 300 series heads, it's worth the extra effort to keep it all original equipment. Pros still install systems of 300 series stream rotor heads, so look to their suppliers (local yellow pages) or Toro.

just change to hunter. its a better head. if you mix and match different rotor heads......it doesnt make a difference how fast or slow it rotates. trust me. i have thousands of accounts where this is the case and the lawns are all green. this isnt rocket science.....its lawn sprinklers. its real easy.

all original equipment. by definition that means putting the broken head back in. then it would be all original equipment. hunter pgp heads are easy to adjust, and replacement is easy. just unscrew the guts.

It remains the most reliable gear drive head in existence. There is nothing sold by the Hunter company that can touch it. It does take a brain to actually fit the blank head with arc disc and nozzle turret, so most installers don't ever try to use them, especially since they don't spray as far as more common gear drive heads. That the Hunter heads are 2 inches taller, sometimes makes them unsuitable for replacing shorter heads.
