    Okay, so the disclaimers that accompanied all my favorite childhood toys should have been on the SRR remote box, too. But that's alright -- I had as much fun with it today as I did with anything I ever got in my pre-teen years.

    I did have to make another trip to town when I found out you needed a conduit box connector and a piece of pipe to mount the receiver to the controller. After that little chore, the rest of it was plug and play. Glad I noticed that the battery didn't come with it, or that would have been a third trip.

    With my system spread over an acre -- that remote is going to come in real handy when I am tweaking. Is the connection the same as the long range remote? The SRR does everything I need from anywhere in the yard, so I am glad I didn't part with the bucks for the fancier one. I can see where you guys would need the increased range, however.

    Any Hunter controller with a SmartPort will accept either the SRR or ICR remote receiver.
  5. TRC also makes a converter for the sidekick.
  6. Also the range issue isn't as big a factor as the durability. My durability rating for the remotes I know about are:
    Rain Master by far
    TRC Commander or Sidekick about the same
    Hunter ICR
    None of the little HO remote can take much abuse

    Well, since I'm not commercial and I don't have to hand my remote to trench monkeys, I think I'll be fine. :dancing:
