Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redhead Quality sprinkler! Easy to use.
The sturdy metal sprinkler with 18 brass nozzles is well made. It is not heavy but the additional weight of the metal helps keeps it in place much better than lightweight plastic ones. The variable range/sweep adjustment is very easy to use. I like it better than any I have used in the past. The full range of the sweep covers 3900 sq.ft. The hose connector is of good quality. It has a lifetime manufacturer's warranty. Made in Taiwan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whitney High quality sprinkler - will last many seasons
The 3600 sq. ft. Premium Metal Oscillating Sprinkler is a high quality sprinkler that will last many seasons. The metal wont easily break or malfunction like plastic-made sprinklers. We were looking for a sprinkler that will last many summers and this one will do the trick. It is very easy to handle/hook up to hose, isn't very heavy, and is easy to control spray distance/angle

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wilson Premium Metal Oscillating Sprinkler
The Melnor Premium metal turbo oscillating sprinkler covers up to 3900 sq. ft. The 18 brass precision nozzles safeguard even watering. There is a turbo drive motor on the sprinkler for extra-long life. Range control adjusters go from narrow, half and full. The sprinkler has a heavy duty aluminum construction and offers a lifetime manufacturer warranty. This is one of the best watering sprinklers I have ever had, most sprinklers are not this sturdy and definitely don’t have such an even spray. I am in the process of making a new flower bed and this sprinkler is definitely sturdy enough to handle the job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brant Great Sprinkler
This sprinkler is by far the best one I have purchased. This one covers a huge area and is super quiet. The sprinkler also comes with a strainer to prevent grime from getting stuck in the nozzles. The sprinkler also has a tool to clear out any plugged nozzles. Very nice sprinkler for single family homes. As you can see in the pictures, I am able to cover my entire front yard using the sprinkler. This means I can cover the front and back with only changing it twice a day!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pohonui Perfect sprinkler for my lawn
I have tried so many sprinklers to find one that doesn't over-spray a 25 X 75 foot lawn and this sprinkler is perfect. No more wasting water or watering things I don't want watered. I have also had problems with other sprinklers as my upper lawn is on a hill and many of the plastic ones roll over as they oscillate. This is made of metal, is strong and very sturdy. It stays put. What I like equally is the adjustable spray. If I turn the sprinkler sideways on my lawn (see photos below) I can adjust it to just the size of the width of the lawn, move it once and I'm done. It's hard to see in the photos, but the water only goes to each edge with just enough over-spray to get the edges of the lawn. It's a great sprinkler. It's made well and I'm very pleased with it's overall performance.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CarlPerkins Good sprinkler with easy water flow mechanism
I really like the control that determines which way the water flows. It is actually intuitive requiring NO reading of black-on-black text (how aggravating) so that you just visually set it for where you want the water to stop. And it is yellow so easy to see. Easy! Quick! And it throws a ton of water out so watering can be quick. I do think the manufacturer got the cart before the horse however. Why - the frame is made of metal but the MOVING gear parts are made of PLASTIC! Now I have an old GMC minivan where they made the same mistake in mis-design; they made the window gears for lowering and opening the windows out of plastic - moving gears made of plastic; ergo, I have had the window gears replaced TWICE and guess what - yep - they broke again in this hot Texas heat - today the temperature reached 104 degrees Fahrenheit. GEARS should be made of METAL not plastic! My point is that it is a great sprinkler that will probably not last a season in Texas heat due to the plastic gears. Time will reveal. But as long as it lasts it will be my "Go To" watering system. There ya go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WarrenJim Nice, solid design.
This review is for the Melnor Premium Metal oscillating sprinkler.
Let me preface this review by stating that I previously used an all-plastic oscillating sprinkler of no-name manufacture.
The Melnor sprinkler leaves that old unit...well, 'in the weeds'.
The fit and finish of the Melnor is outstanding - the all metal base has no sharp edges, the hose attachment knob is large and can be used with wet hands, and the plastic tabs for adjusting the oscillating action are large and sturdy.
The nozzles in the oscillating arm are made of brass, and there is a nozzle cleaner tool built into the end of the sprinkler (see photo).
On the 'hose end' of the sprinkler there is a cleanable sieve to keep small items from entering the sprinkler and jamming the nozzles.
The sprinkler can be set to "full", "narrow", or "half" watering positions using the adjusting tabs.
The unit has a solid feel to it, and sits firmly on my lawn, not being angled by the grass pushing on the base as was the case on my older plastic sprinkler.
According to information on the box, the sprinkler comes with a lifetime warranty, and the sprinkler can cover up to 3,900 square feet. Of course range and coverage are going to limited somewhat to the available water pressure and volume coming from the hose.
I find this to be an excellent replacement for my old sprinkler, and good value for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by radioseeker1 Simple and effective
This sprinkler is simple yet heavy duty. It is made of high quality metal and the design is great making it both stable and sturdy. There is no assembly required. It is easy to use, just hook up a hose and your ready to go! There is no leaking at the connection point! There are three very easy settings for this oscillating sprinkler, narrow, half and full. The plug also serves as a cleaning tool to clean the nozzels if they get clogged. On the full setting this sprinkler can water approximately 3,600 square feet. This sprinkler is great for both watering the lawn or for letting kids have simple fun by running through the showers!
