The PGJ Delivers All The Benefits of a Rotor In a Compact, Spray-Sized Package

The Hunter PGJ was built to bring all the efficient benefits of rotary sprinklers to applications that typically call for a spray. Its many features include a rack of easy-to-install-and-change, water-efficient nozzles, easy arc adjustment, and all the safety and durability that comes with a rubber cover. The Hunter PGJ is capable of working in tandem with larger rotors to combine big and small areas in a single zone, offering a convenience and efficiency that sprays do not. When used in the right application, the Hunter PGJ allows fewer heads to perform more efficiently at a more economical price.

    • Standard factory installed nozzle: 2.0 only
    • Factory installed rubber cover

Headed and Slotted Set Screw

Use a slotted screwdriver or the Hunter wrench for easier and simpler adjustments as needed.

Drain Check Valve (up to 10 ft. of elevation)

As air in the system piping can cause long-term damage to rotors and plumbing, the drain check valve keeps lines from draining when the system is shut off. This saves water, reduces liability, and increases system life.

Sprays? Or Time-Saving, Money-Saving, Water-Saving Rotors?

When your landscape has mid-range zones that are long and narrow, the obvious choice would be to install
sprays. Yet, the intelligent choice would be a rotor specifically designed to fit this kind of landscape. With the
scaled-down-in-size PGJ, two rows of rotors can do the same job as three rows of spray heads. Because PGJ
rotors can run on the same zone as other rotary sprinklers, they require fewer valves and stations, and, in
turn, less trenching, piping, and labour. It all adds up to less installation time and lower installation costs (as well
as lower watering costs).
