The production of e-waste is skyrocketing. Nearly 54 million tons of e-waste was discarded globally in 2019 —an amount that’s expected to increase to 74.7 million tons a year by 2030.

Tall grass can block or deflect a rotor’s nozzle stream, which leads to dry, underwatered patches and muddy, overwatered areas.
The new PGP-06 solves this problem with a taller pop-up height. At 6", it can clear tall turf and deliver water efficiently without interference.
“When the nozzle stream is blocked by turf, it can’t work effectively,” said Steve Hoveln, Product Manager at Hunter Industries. “The new PGP-06 rotor pops up a full 6", which positions the nozzle high above the turf. This allows it to
