The MP Rotator ® is the smarter, faster, and better choice for high-efficiency irrigation
Now with two convenient precipitation rate options across the widest radius range available, you can design and manage your irrigation system based on specific landscape needs with the reliability you know and expect from the industry-leading MP Rotator. With more than 10 years of proven performance with Hunter Industries, the MP Rotator is the most trusted high-efficiency nozzle on the market.
Smarter Choices for your Design
The MP Rotator is the best tool to maximize the efficiency of your irrigation design
One size does not fit all.
Having two matched precipitation rates across two MP Rotator families with the widest radius range in the industry provides precise control over system design and water management. Having the right precipitation rate for your soil type, slope, and plant material minimizes runoff and ensures peak performance. Choose the best product for your unique landscape needs.

Matching Soil Intake Rates
Matching your precipitation rate to your soil intake rate will eliminate the hazards of runoff and help conserve water. With two different precipitation rate options with the MP Rotator, you can now choose the best high-efficiency rotary nozzle for your plant material, soil type, and slope.
Water infiltration into the soil is less than:
Less than 1.5 in/hr
Less than 1.0 in/hr
Less than 0.5 in/hr

Simplify your designs with the MP Rotator
The Standard MP Rotator Series offers the slowest precipitation rate for pop-ups in the industry: 0.4 in/hr across areas ranging from a 5-ft-wide strip up to a 35-ft radius. Having a slow precipitation rate across such a large radius range means less pressure loss throughout the zone. This allows more heads to run on one valve and simplifies the design layout.
Design Using Traditional Sprays
Design Using MP Rotators
Faster Installation & Lower System Costs
Designing with the MP Rotator means faster installation and lower system costs
More heads on one zone means less valves, less pipe, and less wire.
Reduced materials means less labor needed for trenching and installation.
Simpler System Design
The flexibility of the MP Rotator simplifies the sprinkler head layout and overall system design.

Simple and secure field adjustment by tool or by hand
Easily adjust the MP Rotator arc with the MP Tool or by hand. The arc can only be adjusted when the nozzle is running, which prevents any worry of future misalignment due to landscape equipment or vandalism.
Modify the MP Rotator radius with the MP Tool or a slotted screwdriver for up to 25% radius reduction.
Ideal Retrofit and Low-Pressure Solution
MP Rotators match the distances of conventional sprays for an easy retrofit solution to low pressure, runoff, and poor coverage problems.
Quick retrofit with the MP800
With the 0.8 in/hr precipitation rate and 6- to 16-ft radius range offered by the MP800, existing spray zones can convert to high-efficiency overhead systems without significant increases in watering times. It's as simple as that!
Faster troubleshooting for low-pressure systems
If available system pressure drops due to new construction or pressure fluctuations, choose the MP Rotator to get the system pressure back up with even better irrigation coverage. The low flow rates of the MP Rotator result in less pressure loss through the pipe, which increases the available pressure for the system. Instead of cutting in another valve or two, replace your sprays with MP Rotators for a fast and easy fix.
Fewer callbacks with the MP Rotator's double-pop feature
The double-pop feature of the MP Rotator protects the nozzle from debris. Competitor nozzles have open orifices that clog after just a few cycles, so you have to flush the sprinkler to ensure operation. With the MP Rotator, you can count on a worry-free system. Install the best. Choose the MP Rotator.
Competitor nozzles have weakness hidden in plain sight.
Don't believe the hype.
More than a decade of proven performance
At Hunter, we put our products to the test to ensure maximum performance and reliability. The MP Rotator beats the competition in debris resistance, surge testing, and accuracy. Simply put, the MP Rotator is the all-around choice for optimal functionality.
