Does anyone know the size of the hex wrench that adjusts the Hunter
PGP sprinkler heads (arc adjustment) ? I'd like to use one of the
hex wrenches in a set I own to adjust it or does Lowes or Home Depot
carry the Hunter tools for their pgp heads?
Is the same hex wrench also adjust the radius (distance of throw) ?

The arc adjustment doesn't use the hex wrench; it uses the little plastic
wing/tab. The hex wrench adjusts the radius (flow) only.

Dan, maybe I didn't understand the manual correctly because I thought
it was the other way around but thanks for the correction. I'll
reread the manual (on line since I didn't get one).
Upon reading another manual (perhaps more complete on line) it gets a
bit more complicated to adjust the RIGHT arc stop which I need on at
least one maybe two heads. Oh well I'll decide whether I should call
an outfit or do it myself.
thank you again for the help.

To adjust the non-adjustable side of the arc you have to unscrew the
head from the body and rotate it. There is nothing intrinsically
difficult about this, but you have to trade off how much of the lawn
you want to disturb against the risk of getting dirt inside the body.

You can also just rotate the whole head assembly with a large pair or
pliers to set the non-adjustable end of the sweep. If you move it
an 1/8 of a turn or so it's not likely to affect it leaking.
Regarding the adjustment tool, a local plumbing supply or irrigation
supplier that carries Hunter will have them. You could also check
Ebay, might find it there, or email someone on Ebay that sells Hunter
and ask them if they will send you one.
Understand this is an old thread, but I ran into the same issue at my new
house. I didn't own the adjustment wrench. Turns out a regular flat head
screwdriver works fine to adjust the left rotation, but the rubber cap on
the sprinkler gets in the way. I simply used the screwdriver to CAREFULLY
pry up the rubber top. There are three rubber heads underneath that
'snap' into holes. Once the rubber top was off you, can easily do the
adjustment with the flat head screwdriver, and can then snap the rubber
cap back into place. Hope this helps next time someone google's for this
and doesn't have the time to order the tool.

left rotation adjustment. You can snap the rubber cap back on when done.
Hopefully this helps the next person that doesn't have time to order a
