As an irrigation system contractor, I need products that work from the get-go. I have had a great overall experience with these sprinkler heads! I have tried heads from Orbit, Toro, and Rain Bird, and these are by far my favorite. These have a MUCH lower rate of failure in my experience than Orbit. Each Orbit head I installed failed, and I no longer use them. As mentioned, these have about a 15 percent failure rate--that's the best you can get with Chinese manufacturing, which is the reality of essentially all sprinkler heads today.
This year, unless specifically requested otherwise, I will be installing solely this head in each system!

Heads are easy to install and work well. Like the lower gallon per minute capacity ( 2.2) of the heads. This has allowed me to add an additional sprinkler head on zones optimizing coverage.

I am one of those “write the review only if it’s bad” people, so here’s the deal: I purchased 36 of the Toro Universal Impact Sprinkler-40 units as part of a large irrigation project this June. After lots of planning, trenching, and backaches I fired the system up to awe at the beauty of hassle-free watering. To my surprise and chagrin, I have not been able to enjoy the fruits of my labor, as every day I have had to fiddle with a head or two. One will get stuck on return, while another (a 360 degree uninterrupted cycle) will inexplicably stick. All told I will be replacing 5 of the 36 Toro heads I installed (probably with Rainbirds or Orbits) in an effort to achieve my goal. The bottom line is that a 15% failure rate is totally unacceptable and I DO NOT recommend using the Toro heads for anyone wanting a truly enjoyable sprinkler system experience.

I purchased 12 of these heads, mostly because they cost so much less then the rain bird brand. Over the past two years I have had to replace every one or have had to set them to a full circle pattern because they will not operate and return properly. They are not very reliable.

Best comment..Don't expect better than 85% with this type of sprinkler..I have used this type for 10 years with lake water and have found the rainbirds perform the best.

I installed two of these Toro impact sprinklers last June in my yard. Both of them are now getting stuck on the return flow. I will probably replace both with Rainbird or K-rain models. It is unfortunate.

Got this to replace a Walla Walla MP roto-head sprinkler that just wasn't allowing water to get in close to the sprinkler head's location. Impact action of this head did the trick.

These Toro sprinklers have a rapid return rate, and therefore cover the area with more water in less time. They are the always dependable Toro quality.
Shipping was very prompt!
