Which would you pick, Hunter or Toro?

After all the bids I've received, I'm down to two. Both are one-brand only (for whatever reason the mixed brand bids were a whole lot more expensive). I like these two companies because friends recommended them and the salesmen were knowledgeable and very helpful. The Toro bid is from a big company, the Hunter from a small company. Toro bid is about $500 more. Each bid has 100+ heads.
Which would you pick?

Hunter
ICC Controller (22 zones)
I20 Rotors
Pro-Series Sprays
ICV Valves
RainClik
SRR Remote (thrown in free)
Febco RP Backflow

Toro
Custom Command (21 zones)
700 Rotors (I can get the new 800s for no extra charge)
570 Sprays
264 Valves
Rainswitch
Febco RP backflow

Thanks in advance for your help.

From expirience, I would go with Hunter, they have a great warranty on their products. I install Hunter PGP's Rainbird 5000 Rotors, Rainbird 1800 sprays with MPR Nozzles, Rainbird DV valves, and The Rainbird ESP-#Lx in my systems. Sometimes the Pro-C clock will take place of the ESP LX.

I have toro 700's in my system right now. They are fairly hard to adjust and nozzeles are a pain. Hunter is easy to adjust and has excellent sprays. I would go with the I-20 maybe even stainless steal.

I am assuming that since this post is almost three years old, that the original author has made a decision on which products to buy, therefore there is no need to make this an active topic again. Check the dates on the posts before replying. Thanks
