Met with our Hunter Rep Sam Perez today and he took us out for lunch. Great time at Chili's and great burger. The waitress had a low-cut blouse and was VERY friendly. I asked him about the K-Rain and Orbit "PGPs" and he stated that Hunter has absolutely nothing to do with these knock-offs. He said they may look the same but the internal mechanisms are quite different. Hunter uses a 3-pin ratchet gear while the others use a 2-pin set-up. The MP-Rotator deal has been finalized well ahead of September. Hunter will be expanding the factory's production capabilities and Ewing will no longer have exclusive distribution rights. MP-Rotators will be available in any distribution chain that wishes to carry them shortly. Europe and Asia are clammering for it also and this worldwide goal was one of the reasons Nelson sold the MPRs to Hunter as Hunter would expand the factory and distribution. The MP-Rotator 4000 is supposed to be in stores early August with a 37'-40' range. Once introduced expect the PGJ to be discontinued. Expect new spray nozzles from Hunter. Main improvement is re-engineering of the nozzles (larger opening) to help prevent "suck back" of debris that sticks in the nozzle outlet and splits a spray. I put in my request again to have the engineers design a Pro-Spray/I-Spray that will fit into the Toro 570 bodies. Sam just winked at me and said, "Nothing's impossible." (Last time a Hunter guy winked at me was when I asked about them developing a rotary sprinkler. They knew the MPR deal was in the works.) Leo and I also got some new swell-looking Hunter ball caps.
