Offering unparalleled levels of power, performance, and versatility, the all-new I-80 gear-driven rotor from Hunter Industries is the most technologically advanced commercial rotor on the market. Engineered for sports turf and large park applications, the I-80 is built with a robust, dirt-tolerant gear drive that offers the highest torque output of any rotor in the commercial sphere, and extends a radius range from 11.3 to 29.6 metres.
The I-80 features a wide range of highly efficient, dual-trajectory, wind-fighting nozzles for highly efficient performance in a range of applications. Exclusive to the commercial sector, the I-80 provides total top serviceability (TTS) via its integrated, surface-mounted snap-ring. This no-dig solution makes maintenance quick and easy, and is ideal for both professional and recreational venues alike.
In addition, the I-80 offers an advanced ProTech Turf Cup System — an industry first. Thanks to ProTech TC™ technology, living or synthetic turf is retained in a cup mounted to the top of the rotor and installed flush to the surrounding turf. The special retaining rings in the turf cup add surface area for increased root adhesion, helping to keep turf securely in place. The net result is an aesthetically pleasing installation that helps ensure safety during sports field play. The no-dig turf cup is also totally top serviceable and features no-tool quick-release removal, arc adjustments without riser removal, and a fully contained riser assembly that stays together when removed from the sprinkler body.
“The I-80 continues Hunter’s legacy of developing products on the forefront of irrigation technology,” said Rich Dunn, Product Marketing Manager. “There is nothing else like it available for commercial spaces.”
An optional rubber cover kit is available that is perfect for polo field applications. A riser-mounted version is available for turf or dust control in pastures, corrals, and sand arenas.
