Put onto a hose, set the 360 degree spray radius with the yellow parts on the bottom, then you pull OUT not UP the yellow button on top to set the spray distance. Pulling it out is easy, pushing it back in to lessen the length is a little trickier. It's normal for the spray to go up really high into the air. That allows the water to fall closer to the sprinkler I think. I like how it sprays. Just got to Read More

Answer: 
I personally can't, but it's pretty simple. Connect the hose and turn it on. One yellow ring controls rotation in one direction, the other ring controls the other direction. Do it while you're holding it so you can direct the spray away from you, then put it in the ground and do the final adjustment for arc and range.

Answer: 
Slide the yellow piece on the top in and out to control the distance of the coverage. The arrows on the yellow rings pointing to the stop tabs indicate the spray direction. Position the stop tabs to determine the lateral coverage you want.

Dear Bob,
Thank you very much for your question.
I have reached out to manufacturer for more information and here is the response.

Dear Bob,
Thank you very much for your question.
I have reached out to manufacturer for more information and here is the response.
"In order to adjust the diameter of the spray simply slide the yellow deflector tab in and out. The further out the deflector is, the less the length of the spray. When the deflector is pushed all the way in, the unit is at full spray diameter.
• The 2950 turbo rotary sprinkler is adjustable by turning the yellow rings. There are two types of rings, one has arrows and one has tabs to slide. On both versions the rings do not rotate in a complete circle. Forcing the rings to rotate could cause the stop pin to break.
• If you have the version with the arrows on the adjustor rings, when the arrows are aligned (above one another) the sprinkler will operate to a full 360 degrees. By turning the top ring clockwise, the area decreases depending upon how far you move the ring in comparison to the degree you wish. Moving the ring 90 degrees decreases the movement of the sprinkler by that amount and gives you 270 degrees worth of coverage. Further adjustments will decrease the coverage area. The area between the arrows represents the area that will be covered.
• If you have the version with the tabs on the adjustor rings, you will need to hold the bottom tab and turn the top tab counterclockwise until the tab stops. The top tab should be slightly to the left of the bottom tab. By turning the top tab clockwise, the area decreases depending upon how far you move the ring in comparison to the degree you wish. Moving the ring 90 degrees decreases the movement of the sprinkler by that amount and gives you 270 degrees worth of coverage. Further adjustments will decrease the coverage area. The area between the tabs represents the area that will be covered."

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good sprinkler 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. May 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy 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. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Intuitive and effective little sprinkler 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. March 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does The Job 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. December 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good sprinkler 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. September 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy it Just don't buy it . It works well for a while, or it never does. Never again. February 12, 2014
