Rain Bird Maxi-Paw cover replacement

My sprinklers come up just fine but sometimes they don't return (drop back down). So, in the process of mowing the lawn I have destroyed several covers. My problem is that I am unable to snap on a net cover because the post that the cover clips to has also been severed. None of the manuals identify this part. Suggestions?

If you look at their parts breakdown, the repair kit is basically the entire unit minus the outer shell.

Post does not appear to be available separately.
Basically, you have to buy a new unit .

I have this same problem....

I would be less expensive to replace the rainbird with the Hunter PGP-ATR.

Any reason I would want to get the rainbird instead of going to the hunter?

"Any reason I would want to get the rainbird instead of going to the hunter?"
In the irrigation world this is like asking "which religion is best?"

No matter what someone answers someone else will say they are wrong.
Both are good products, both do the job.
The MaxiPaw will go to a tighter angle and is probably better on dirty water.
The PGP is extremely popular and comes with a larger nozzle selection.

Good luck.
