consider Rainbird Maxipaw impacts - no gear drive - crud blows right through the head and out the nozzle

Best rotor for dirty water recommendations?

Needs some advice from on what would be the best replacement rotors for "dirty" water. The Orbit ones from the big box store are horrible and only last a year or two before they stop turning. When the stop turning they make a clicking sound as if the gears are stripped--assumed this is wear from the dirty water??? Will the Hunter PGP or Rainbird 5004 last longer than the Orbit Voyager ones? Every year it seems like I am replacing around 5-10 of this suckers.

We are on a county wide irrigation system has great pressure but draws water from a canal via the Yakima River-- real dirty stuff. I have a older (Banjo) large filter 1.5" x 80 mesh to remove all sorts of gunk, but we still have to do a lot of manual cleaning for all the heads every year. Usually unscrewing the head 50+ heads and cleaning the individual head filters, etc....

Any suggestions on a better rotor head or even a better filtration system?
