  • New MP800SR360 is designed for radius settings as low as 6 feet and up to 12 feet, with a 360-degree full-circle pattern.

    SAN MARCOS, Calif.–– January 8, 2015

    Hunter Industries proudly announces the release of the new MP800SR360, a short radius version of its popular MP Rotator®, featuring rotating streams of water applied at a slower rate to conserve water and prevent runoff. “The MP800SR360 rounds out our short-radius offering with a 360° full-circle pattern and complements the 90°-120° adjustable arc model introduced in 2014,” said Kelsey Jacquard, Hunter Product Manager.

    The MP800SR360 reaches radius settings as low as 6 feet and can reach up to 12 feet on the high end. The precipitation rate remains matched across all arc and radius settings at approximately 0.8 inches per hour.

    This new addition to the MP Rotator family boasts all of the features and benefits of the current MP Rotator line, including high distribution uniformity, wind-resistant streams, debris-resistant double-pop design, and construction with the highest quality materials available.

  • New kit design offers easier installation and maintenance

    SAN MARCOS, Calif.–– January 13, 2015

    Hunter Industries proudly announces the release of the new STK-6V, an enhanced version of its existing synthetic turf irrigation system to clean and cool synthetic sports turf. “The STK-6V was designed specifically to provide easier installation, simple maintenance, and to accommodate different types of playing surfaces,” said Rich Dunn, Hunter Product Manager. “The shorter vault design provides a connection to the mainline at approximately 24”-30” deep, a much more manageable depth for installation with less digging required.” In the new model, the rotor hangs from an adjustable bracket within the vault for precise adjustment to meet grade, and adjustable stands support the manifold, eliminating the need to backfill the vault with gravel for support.

    The STK-6V includes a new three-inch galvanized ductile iron assembly with heavy-duty grooved fittings for ease of servicing. The isolation valve and point of connection for the quick coupler are now inside the vault and provided with the field-installed assembly, for a total top service solution. The vault also includes a drain valve for easier servicing and winterization.

    The core of the Hunter ST System features gear-driven long-range rotors, a heavy-duty manifold assembly, and low-pressure loss, slow-opening valves, with all components contained in a construction-grade vault for total top service and easy maintenance. “Total access to all components allows servicing without cutting into the synthetic surface and avoids extremely costly excavation and restoration,” said Dunn.

    The STK-6V is configurable to accommodate synthetic turf over vault, non-infill tight turf over vault, running track, and concrete pad or walkway installations.

  • SAN MARCOS, Calif- July 7, 2015 - Hunter Industries and Senninger Irrigation announce today their entrance into a due diligence phase toward an intended acquisition of Senninger Irrigation by Hunter Industries. Hunter and Senninger have been strategic partners since 2004 through an OEM relationship.

    Senninger President James Burks comments, "Our history of success together as separate organizations provides a solid indicator of our positive future as a unified team."

    Senninger is a Florida-based irrigation manufacturer of water and energy efficient sprinklers, spray nozzles, pressure regulators and other irrigation tools for agriculture, mining, effluent and wastewater applications, and the dairy industry. Operations were started in 1963 by Joe Senninger with nephews Andy and Mark Healy joining him, respectively, in 1964 and 1965. Throughout its more than five decades of business, Senninger has remained a privately held corporation.

    This acquisition adds to Hunter's growing revenue stream through expansion into Senninger's markets. "Hunter and Senninger combine to create a very talented team of engineers and manufacturing professionals. We are very excited about working together with their teams to bring innovations to our shared channels," said Greg Hunter, CEO at Hunter.

    "There has been an opportunity for both companies, over three decades, to casually observe each other's development and behavior, providing insight into the character and reputation of each respective company, their founders and management. Cultural alignment was a key factor for both organizations in opening discussions focused on an acquisition," said Mr. Burks.

    The due diligence phase is expected to complete by mid-September. As always Senninger will continue to provide the high quality products and services its customers have come to expect.

  • SAN MARCOS, Calif- August 11, 2015 - Hunter Industries proudly announces the release of the new Clik-Delay, a rain sensor accessory that prevents irrigation for 48 hours after a rain event.

    "The Clik-Delay was designed specifically for the needs of the California market to comply with the watering restrictions mandate, but its water-saving benefit has wide appeal and it supports our corporate focus on water conservation," said John Wascher, Hunter Product Manager.

    The Clik-Delay is a simple, low-cost water-saving device that attaches to Hunter Mini-Clik® and Rain-Clik® sensors and Hunter controllers to prevent watering for 48 hours after a rain event. After the rain sensor dries out, Clik-Delay will prevent watering for the next 48 hours, so unnecessary watering does not occur. This easy solution works with any current system – there's no need to replace a controller or make complicated changes. Simply connect the Clik-Delay module to the controller and the rain sensor.

    Clik-Delay is compatible with most commonly available brands of clik-type rain sensors and irrigation controllers. It expands the capability of any controller by preventing unnecessary watering and complies with recent watering restrictions in the state of California.

    The Clik-Delay battery has a 5-10 year life span and the module is epoxy potted to prevent water intrusion. It is available now from Hunter authorized distributors.
