Toro electric to hydraulic converter

Has anyone had any experience with the Toro electric to hydraulic converter? I have an old hydraulic system and the controller went out. I am not sure which converter to get and I am not sure how to hook it up. I have 9 hydraulic tubes running to the current controller and there are 4 wires hooked to the timer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Still waiting for the model number. I'm going to make a guess that it has "01" in it, and answer accordingly.

Sight unseen, you should be fine. The "four wires" part of the description might mean you have an electric master valve to go along with the hydraulic zone valves. If that master valve has a line-voltage solenoid, it would have to be replaced with a 24-volt solenoid.

The electric/hydraulic converter units can interface with any hydraulic zone valves. Their main purpose is to work with "normally-open" hydraulic valves, replacing Toro controllers that have a water supply connection.
