Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gthree Best water sprinkler ever!
At first glance, this sprinkler looks very simple, lots of plastic and one ground spike. Don't be fooled. I own several pulsator sprinklers...none go as far as this one and it can be set not to go as high. The left/right setting are super simple to adjust. I'm watering a huge area with one sprinkler. It is virtually silent, does not pulse...just slowly and quietly goes back and forth. Try one...you'll like it. I doubt I will use my other pulsators.

Good for small areas and operates in a quite manner, good adjustments for the side to side movements, but the spray adjustments could use some work. The spray adjustments is hard to move and set, which makes it hard to figure where to set it as I have a hard time while sprinkler is running to judge it. It either is completely off or when I try to adjust it goes completely on. The spray does change on the back and forth motion from a long steady spray to a more spread out spray which is helpful.

Tried to hook up this with another sprinkler and loss pressure and it would hardly water 10ft. Great for just one head watering from a corner out but not trying to use other sprinklers with it.

I use this on a manual timer once each day to help establish some sod I've recently installed. It took all of about 5 minutes to install and fine tune. The metal spike easily went into the hard Georgia clay and firmly held the sprinkler in the required vertical orientation. The bottom plastic rings rotate to set the spray pattern of the head. I could eyeball the initial settings because the sprinkler head will rotate against whichever stop it happens to rest against as you set the pattern width before you even turn the water on, which reduces the amount of time you have to spend crouched over a water spewing device. The sprinkler alternates between a long range stream and a short range spray to cover everything. It doesn't look that affective at first, but after 15 minutes it was obvious that it was getting the job done for my sod.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BB101 A quieter option for covering large areas
The gear driven rotary sprinkler by melnor does a good job covering a large space.
The capabilities are pretty rudimentary, and I am not sure how long they would last in the Texas sun but its first run worked well.
The sprinkler spike and water connector are a light weight metallic compound. The core body of the sprinkler is made of plastic. It has 2 concentric yellow rings on the bottom that can be moved to change how far left and right the sprinkler turns. Now the least impressive adjustment, the top yellow bit. Its a small plastic piece that slides in and out (I see this as being the first part to break). It controls how large the spray is and how far it goes. When placed all the way in, nothing blocks the spray and you have a steady stream hitting about 25 feet out (no downward spray). The yellow tab moves into the water flow and knocks down the stream thus letting more water drop to the ground and also shrinks how far it sprays. Very simple but not entirely good when it comes to fine-tuning.
Overall I like what the sprinkler does, but I wish there was better fine tuning. Too bad it wasn't made of stronger materiel like metal.

This is my second Turbo Rotary sprinkler that I have. I purchased the first after a similar style from a different company failed after a short period of time. This one lasted the entire summer with heavy use and is still going strong. The ability to dial in the area to be covered and adjust the spray type sold me on this type and I am pleased with my purchase. Solid sprinkler and a good value.

I've never had good results from spike type sprinkler bases, but there is an area in my front yard that begs for one. I reasoned that the reason they had not worked well was because of the impact sprinkler head on top that just shakes so much that the spike loosens itself in the wet soil. I had seen these turbo sprinklers in use and noticed there was no shaking, so I tried it and am glad I did. It was easy enough to set up and adjust, similar to an impact sprinkler. However, the sprinkler is basically silent, with no shaking involved, and the spike remained secure through each use. The unit itself is all plastic, as I'm sure the gears inside are as well, so I have no idea how long it will last, but so far it has done very good.

Just don't buy it .
It works well for a while, or it never does.
