Toro hydraulic controllers

If anyone is interested, I am rebuilding Toro Custom 8 and 11 hydraulic controllers as well as Toro Monitors for those who really need or want them. There are several options when considering what to do with your hydraulic sprinkler system now that they are being phased out and this is just one option to consider. Many of the components for these controllers are still available and you don't have to go through the expense of converting to electric or installing a new system to keep things green.

Yes, I have one used Freetime 4. I just checked it out and find it working well. I also have a few parts left over for Freetime (frames,springs, and MoM four station controllers (like the Freetime but running 120v instead of a plug in transformer--mainly clock motors and one used PV with the brass fittings).

toro custom 11

Hi, we purchased a home that has a Toro Custom 11, the hydraulic type. Everything works fine except for the timer. Do you have by chance a replacement? I would rather not convert to electric, I like how reliable this system is, well, besides the time issue :)

I know your original post was almost 2 years ago, but I thought it could not hurt to try.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Contact the factory, and they can probably repair it. Just be aware of the fact that the overwhelming majority of sprinker systems with hydraulic controllers are not going to have plumbing that is up to code, and you want to make sure yours is not sub-par.

RainBird 90 degree pop=up heads

Along my sidewalk I have 8 heads. For 15 years no problems. This years, # 7 & #8 barely pop up and flow water. All the others are fine. There is a tree between #6 & #7. Is there a possibility the roots have kinked the line? In Michingan.
