Without measuring the extended height is around 4 to 5 feet. the lowest is no less than 2 feet.

How do you adjust distance?

There are several different adjustments. My suggestion is to read the directions so you can adjust the flow.

Can I just buy a new top part? Which one would I need to order?

It looks pretty standard. I have to imagine they use the same head across multiple products. Go to Melbourne.com and search for replacement parts for 9610.

it can oscillate back and forth or continuously 360

Can you reduce the area it sprays out too. I Need a smaller range. My yard area isnt that depth.

Asked by Cheryl September 10, 2019

Answers

Yes, you can easily reduce both the distance and the width of the spray. One of mine is in a vegetable garden that is about 20’ x 20’.

Perfect
bought it yesterday. I am tired of small on the ground sprinklers that don't cover large areas. I don't have huge yard but I also don't want to keep moving the sprinkler. this is awesome, it's steady, adjustable height and pattern, and easy yobuse. it's a must if you don't have a sprinkler system.
by Ahmad
Useless except for full rotation - sprays extra streams to side
Big disappointment. Typically, impact sprinklers can be set up near a deck and spray e.g. a quarter or half circle, but 2 of these sprinklers that I got also spray random streams to the side, so this thing can only be used for full circles. To water a 1/4 circle I would have to keep it closer to stationary with a resulting uneven spray pattern with over-watered and under-watered areas. This is nothing that can be adjusted.

Hose coupling is defective after minimal usage
the hose coupling has loosened to the point where this is almost non-operational as pressure is minimal because of the defect in the coupling. I used this product maybe 10 times and the coupling has failed. No water should escape this area for a product of this price point. There is no way to retighten either. Why they can't design this to hold is beyond me. I have contacted Melnor and we will see if they stand behind their product. Outside of this issue it is a good product but I can not recommend it or rate it higher than 1 star until this issue is resolved.

Great sprinkler, HOWEVER (no real fault of the sprinkler)
Bought the sprinkler today. So excited to use. No directions, so youtubed a couple of videos. That's fine for initial instruction, but didn't get into the minutiae. Called technical support. They were great & she ended up sending me 2 instruction sheets via email that addressed my issues. Bottom line is - it's a great sprinkler. HOWEVER, if you want to get the FULL benefit of 85' full-force spray field, you need around 80 psi water pressure. That's my only "complaint," and that's not a real complaint of the sprinkler. I'm on a well, so only get up to around 50 psi. So I get about half of what the sprinkler "should be/could be" doing. Otherwise, love it. If you're wanting the full benefit of this sprinkler, make sure you have the psi to get it there.

I got 2 of these for watering after putting down sod in the front yard & seed/straw in the backyard. That was 2 years ago & they still look & work like new. I too pictures of them yesterday to show how they have held up being left out side for weeks at a time. I love the simple pull/press clamps on the legs & the fact that they are lightweight. I have had no issue with hose washers falling out of the connector for the hose. Great product.

Yes, it met my expectations. Went on vacation and set it up for my neighbor to tend to my front yard plants. All they had to do was turn it on every other day. Worked well. Easy to set up. Nice feature is the varying height for my various height plant set up.
