Makes PGJ-04 rotor adjustments easy.
Be sure to get this to adjust a PGJ-04 (and others) rotor. Really facilitates adjustments look for Hunter video on line to see how to adjust a rotor.

Will the Hunter 05-17200 Rotor Nozzle adjustment tool work on the MP2000 series?
batmanpi on Jun 16, 2013
vincent q on May 29, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Stick it through the lifting hole pull the rotor up and then use the end ro adjust the arc. Its easy to use.
does this tool just adjust the rotation or can it adjust the distance?
Rick C on May 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This plastic end is used to adjust the stop position of rotation. The metal hex end is used to adjust the position of the set screw holding in the nozzle on the sprinkler head, which when lowered into the water stream reduces the distance of spray.

Another way to change the distance of spray is by switching out the nozzles in the head with a different size. The Hunter heads ship with a full set. Sprinklerwarehouse has the tables with the heads showing distance of spray for each nozzle size, for various water pressures.
what hole does the tool go into ?
anthony l on Apr 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The metal end goes into the hole just above the nozzle. By turning the set screw you can adjust the lenght and width of the spray.

The opposite end goes into the middle of the head. This will allow you to adjust the flow of water anywhere from "full" to completely shut off. This is a great feature with Hunter Heads because if you want to change a nozzle you don't have to run to shut off the whole system. Simply turn the water off at the head and make any adjustments you want. Also, I have found it useful to be able to shut off 1 or more nozzles if you have some (in the zone) that don't pop up. If you shut a few off all the pressure goes to the one that is stuck or for whatever reason not popping up and it will push them up. And - if you are woring in an area with the water on, and don't want to get wet from one (or more) nozzles, you can turn them off without having to run back to the pump and shutting everything down.

I have several hundred Hunter Heads in use and am very pleased with them. Hope this helps.

is there a you tube for adjusting the arc?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: not sure about u tube video, the head comes adjusted to 180 degrees. Align the sprinkler head to the right and put the T end of the tool in head where it has the + & - sign and adjust accordingly. Hope that helps
I have misplaced my adjustment tool unless I am mistaken the tool purchased with this company is a good price BUT the shipping cost is about $13. bucks.
Can anyone tell me where to purchase one that the shipping costs are not so high. Thanks?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Try a local landscape/lawncare company. Just call, be nice, and who knows. We have local area JD landscape businesses you can purchase this tool at too. I believe HD carries more hunter products, maybe try them. A local landscape/lawncare company is porbably best place to start. Good luck!

Sometimes I purchase extra parts through Sprinklerwarehouse so I have them on hand for me, family, friends, etc.... it is a way to buy enough for free shipping and benefit from this sites low prices.
