The Hunter ST System features gear-driven long-range rotors based on Hunter’s legendary rotor technology, a special multi-axis swing joint, low-pressure loss valves and a robust feature-packed enclosure. Hunter ST rotors are reliable and engineered for longevity in high flow and high-pressure conditions. They are currently available in two configurations: the ST-90 and the STG-900.

AE50 Awards - American Society of Agricultural & Biological Engineers recognize companies for innovative engineering in the areas of agriculture, food and biological systems. Products are accepted globally and are judged on specific criterion; they must provide the most profound technology in their industry, improve user safety and benefit producers by saving them time, money and labour. Only 50 awards are distributed each year.

O3000 Orbitor Pivot Sprinkler
The Nelson O3000 Orbitor pivot sprinkler features new technology that eliminates the struts of a sprinkler body to provide outstanding uniformity and optimal droplets at low operating pressures.

Designed with an innovative bracketless assembly, debris hang-up and water pattern misting common to conventional sprinklers are eliminated. Irrigators can expect long wear life, reliable operation and durability even in the toughest watering conditions. The Orbitor utilises Nelson's universal 3TN quick-change, colour-coded plastic nozzle.

The O3000 Orbitor offers an excellent water application solution from 69 to 138 kPa (10 to 20 psi) operating pressure. This low-pressure sprinkler is mounted on drop tubes and utilises low trajectory angles to keep the water out of the wind for maximum water and energy conservation.

The O3000 is available with the choice of two plates to meet desired droplet configurations specific to site and soil requirements. The sprinkler allows irrigators to more precisely apply water, energy and fertilizer.

The SVC was Hunter’s first battery operated controller, and added a new level of flexibility in our controller offering. Originally released in 2002, SVC has been extremely successful, with successive year over year gains in sales volume. As SVC gained popularity, customers have provided valuable feedback requesting more standard programming features in our battery powered controllers.

All SVC will be replaced with the new Node product, with expected availability from October 2011. Node is an advanced battery operated controller. No limitations, with many features found in AC powered controllers. Node is similar to the SVC in construction and application, but has significant feature improvements, including:

  • 1,2,4, and new 6 station models, (Valve and ValveB models also available)
  • Standard programming with 3 programs (A,B,C) and 4 start times each
  • Accepts up to two 9 volt batteries for extended life
  • Master valve functionality
  • Seasonal adjustment (10-150%)
  • Sensor bypass
  • Total Runtime calculator
  • Odd/even programming

Nelson Irrigation Corporation introduces low pressure Rotator® sprinkler technology for up-top mounting on centre pivots and linear/lateral irrigation machines. Eliminate crop interference from tall growing crops like corn or sugar cane with the new Nelson A3000 Accelerator with the Navy Plate (pictured).

The new Navy Plate for the A3000 Accelerator is designed for up top mounting. As a low pressure rotating type sprinkler, the A3000 Accelerator produces a wider wetted pattern than sprayheads resulting in better overlap and longer soak time to reduce runoff. Plus, the rotating streams of the A3000 are low angle and multi-trajectory, resulting in both improved uniformity and application efficiency.

Compared to impact sprinklers, the A3000 Navy Plate operates at lower pressures — 10 psi — saving energy.

Expect long wear life because unlike impact sprinklers where the seals and bearing are exposed to water quality and pressure, the A3000’s seals and thrust bearing are protected. Re-nozzling to match crop requirements or pumping capacity is fast and easy, as the A3000 Accelerator features a quick-change, color-coded plastic nozzle.

The new Navy Plate for the A3000 operates through a full nozzle range without having to change sprinkler models.This new sprinkler offers an excellent up-top water application solution at 10 PSI operating pressure.

Nelson Irrigation Australia, Australia’s leading distributor of technically advanced irrigation equipment, is delivering cutting edge water efficiency technology to producers of low growing crops with its innovative new “brown plate” for the R3000 Pivot Sprinkler.

The R3000 has been a market favourite for some time thanks to its interchangeable modular design components which can adapt to suit weather and crop conditions with a simple push and turn mechanism.

Featuring easy to identify, wear resistant and precision-accurate colour coded nozzles, the R3000 allows growers to remove the rotator for cleaning or to change a nozzle to suit conditions, without shutting down the system. This results in a drastic reduction of labour and downtime.
