    The nozzle thrust of the big gun style of head must be pretty high but I have seen these animals up close and personal a time or two and can assure you that they are pretty resilient. The part that amazes me is that someone could actually find a place in a feedlot close enough to the ground to install a big gun that would injure much less kill anything.

    Is this an all 2-wire system? Or just your new work?

    The original system is conventional, but it is a mess. They have multi strad run all over, splices that no one remembers where they are, main line and wire buried under 8' berms. So I thought that 2 wire was they way to go, even though I am only installing 6 zones (sprinklers) given the size of the property expansion is likely.

    What'd you decide to use for the controller?

    We are going with the hunter dual because the manager and the grounds crew are all familiar with the hunter clocks. They already have two I cores on the site so there will be no learning curve.

    What are you going to do for trench compaction? will all that sand settle? All this type of work is new to me sorry for the new guy questions...will you use water or a jumping jack to compact? Sod over the top?

    The DUAL is a great controller, price is right and we often get asked "why are you using 2-wire for only 10 zones" LOL

    Your work looks top notch and it is refreshing to see. Good job!
