Hunter Controller

I have a Toro Custom Command controller for my front yard and all the beds on my property. I am adding zones for the rear property and decided to buy a Hunter Controller the other day.

It's an X-Core....model #XC-800-I. I was surprised how small it is.It's about 6" wide and 6" tall. It may not be the top of the line,but,it should suit my needs just fine. Anyone here using it and if so,whats your opinion of it?

Attached is a pic of it installed in my shed.

It looks like the inheritor of the "entry-level" status for Hunter controllers - the small size and display are definite drawbacks, in my view. No cover, either, makes it look cheapish.

Do you really need a cover for interior use?

Offsets are there for a reason or I would not have used them.

I'm addressing the professionals who want to install something beyond the usual Home Depot products.

I did not know the big box stores sold these controllers.

maybe not in NJ, but they sell Toro controllers for certain, and one of the features of the stuff I install is that controllers have a cover with the operating instructions on the inside, which is something they might not find at a home center

You guys are a tough crowd,but,as always,I appreciate all your advice even though Wet_Boots basically called my controller "junk". I guess I will have to live with 2 "junk"controllers.
