    The other day I got rid of 5 salvaged controllers (Rain Dial and Total Control 6 and 9 sta.) some with manu. dates back to 1994...

    $25 ea for the RD6s, $35 for the RD9s, $50 for the TC6...

    Anyway, that and an asst. of Toro 570 sprinklers brought me almost $200.

    I had no idea what they might be worth. He's a maint. gardener buddy and I just wanted to lose some of the clutter.

    I was curious, so today I looked on ebay.... people do really bid for these things...

    Look at this used Rainbird-ESP for instance

    Or this used Rain Dial

    Any of you tried it?

    I have a bunch of stuff to get rid of soon. Some of it is from when I bought the van and some inventory from SprinklerGuy. A few used controllers - ESPs. Buckner, Imperial, Superior valve and controller parts. Probably a whole tray (200-300) Toro and Hunter spray head nozzles. Nelson valves, Irritrol 700 valves, and larger valves that I'll never use. I'm hoping Ebay brings me a decent amount.

    Oh and ton of odd ball copper, PVC and poly fittings

    Anybody got any old mechanicals that work? I have a residential service account that wants to go back to an RC series. She can't understand the Pro-C.

    I can probably come up with one within a few weeks into start up season. Im always looking for a reason to yank any clock that isnt remote ready.

    I believe RB still makes the RC series....the boys in the lightning belt
    swear by them.

    Our local distributor says they can't get them. A few distributors bought up the remaining stock that RB had.
