Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Schasak Does not oscillate
I just purchased a Premium Metal 3900 sq. ft. oscillating sprinkler and begins oscillating and then after a short period just stops oscillating.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Casey No what i expected
The sprinkler I received does not look like the one above. I love my first identical sprinkler that I bought in the store, that is why I ordered a second one. The one I received is all green and does not have the coverage range that the first one has. The box says it is Model 4200, but looks like it had been previously opened and I question if a wrong model sprinkler had been put in the box. I did not return it because I needed to use it right away as I had my lawn aerated and overseeded and had to water twice a day. It works OK but is not the sprinkler that I expected. It is difficult to rate this purchase due to possibly getting the wrong item.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Bought four, two quit working already
I bought four Melnor oscillating sprinklers at Home Depot in the past couple of years. Only two are working now. The other two got stuck in one position and constantly spray water into one puddle on the lawn. There appears to be no way a homeowner can repair the sprinkler once this happens. I searched the internet for ways to repair a Melnor sprinkler and found none. I searched the Melnor company website and there is no information on how to troubleshoot or repair their sprinklers. The concept is fine, but in practice these sprinklers don't last. Don't waste your money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RM99 Falls very short of expectations
I researched oscillating sprinklers to find one that offered some control of features to fit the varied patterns of irrigation in my yard. On paper this unit looked great, in practice it falls well short of expectations. I have used it less than ten times and can no longer vary the width of the spray pattern - the adjuster is stuck in the full on position and will not move. Because it's made of inexpensive plastic, I'll break it if I try to force the adjuster.
If you're searching for a dependable, feature-rich oscillating sprinkler, keep looking.

Great sprinkler. Like the option of half sprinkler or full sprinkler.
Reaches a long long ways.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gecko Works fine for me.
I bought this sprinkler about 6 months ago (spring) and have used it without an issue since. It allows me to adjust the arc of the spray as well as the width. It has great coverage area. Yes it's plastic but it hasn't been a problem. A little on the pricey side but I will be getting another (they were out of stock last time I went to the store).
