      A:  I doubt that its metal geared as the swing adjuster is also plastic, but what I can say is this model is much better built than all plastic ones.

            A:  Just tried mine for the 1st time today right out of the box and the oscillation does not work. Tried various water pressure to see if it was pressure related. Nothing. Getting returned.

              Answer This Question

              A:  It depends on water pressure. I have about 58 psi at my house and my maximum spray width is about 50 feet. This sprinkler actually has a wider spray width that any other sprinkler i have had. Probably because of brass spray nozzles.

              by|May 17, 2021

              A:  I use this sprinkler for irrigating my lawn. When it is watering in an unobstructed area with about 40lbs of well water pressure, the spray pattern extends 10-14 ft on each side of the sprinkler when all sprinkler jets are open.

              by|May 18, 2021

                A:  This sprinkler can do the job, depending on how long your flowerbed is and what kind of water pressure you have. There are two adjustments for oscillation so you can set it to any type coverage you need. It can be set to cover from 80 degrees to 80 degrees and everything in between. I have good water pressure, when I turn it up it will cover approximately 30' from side to side give or take a little. Very handy sprinkler for big areas or small, you won`t be disappointed.

                A:  The width of the spray pattern is governed by your available system pressure. You regulate that by how much you open the hose bib faucet.

                by|May 22, 2021

                A:  That sprinkler will water approximately 69 feet for the length and 58 feet wide.

                        by|May 22, 2021

                        A:  I am not really mechanically inclined but it is driven mainly by the flow of water through levers encased under the bottom. The only parts made of plastic seems to be the adjusting mechanism the handle for the water connection and another part at the end.

                          Disappointly bad
                          Thought I would spend extra money on a sprinkler for a metal one that would last longer than the plastic ones that never last a season. My mistake. First of all, only the frame is metal (not really sure what kind of metal it is - some type of pot metal, magnets don't stick to it), the underside, where the water is piped in, is all plastic. There is a metal coupling that your hose threads into has a thin plastic/rubber ring around it that is supposed to make tightening the coupling to the hose easier. Except it doesn't. The plastic ring is just loose around the coupling and within the first day of use immediately was abraded enough on the inner part to make it unusable. In fact, it made it *more* difficult to tighten or loosen since it just spins around the metal coupling. Pull that off thinking you can tighten by hand is a mistake also as the outer part of the coupling is closer to jagged serrations than actual an nut head. Wait! If that is not enough, the coupling does not fit tightly against the inner part of the tubing that goes to the sprinkler, so of course it leaks like a sieve! Yes I have replaced the inner washers with brand new ones and it made no difference. Save your money and look elsewhere. It is simply amazing what companies sell anymore. The days of quality and value are long gone.

                            This sprinkler is sturdy, has good range of motion, and is easy to use.
                            This review is for the Melnor Premium Metal Oscillating Sprinkler, Model # 234-995, purchased from Homedepot website in June, 2020. I have used it many times over the past 2 months. It feels sturdy, and is easy to adjust the range of motion. You can set it to do a full arc from one side to the other, or any portion of the arc you want. For easily and quickly attaching to my hose, I put on a quick connect attachment. That way I don't have to screw and unscrew the hose each time I use the sprinkler. Overall, I am pleased with this product.

                              Pretty good, but two minor-ish issues
                              I've had a couple of versions of this over the years. The first one was made in Germany, this one in China (I think, or at least, not Germany). Two issues with this one: 1) It tends to catch on the thatch of my (nominally) St. Augustine grass when pulling it by the hose to move it. I took a piece of 3" rectangular plastic downspout material I had around and made a "skid plate" for it and it is easier to move (see pictures). 2) The holes get clogged easily and the supplied plastic "reamer" on the inside of the end plug is not very effective. I opened up a small standard paperclip and keep it near the faucet. I then remove the end plug and ream the holes while the water is running on low to try to flush out whatever might be in there. Don't know if it's something in our city water, that gets past the screen washer, or debris otherwise somehow gets in there. Other than that, it works well enough for the money.

                                Good quality solid metal base. Easy to adjust. I have several. Bought to replace cheaper version bought at local hardware store with exterior limited adjustment mechanism which proved to be unreliable. The interior mulitple adjustment Melnor proved to be easier to use with greater flexibility for odd shaped coverage areas and much more reliable.

                                I picked up this Melnor Premium Metal Oscillating Stprinker in store for just under $26.00. It works great....and when or if it doesn't it has a lifetime warranty. Just get at Melnor and they'll send you what you need to get it working properly again. I've looked at a lot of reviews and if you pay attention nearly all the poor reviews are by non-verified purchasers. High ratings are from people that have actually purchased this sprinkler. It's hard to believe that all the people that leave a bad review just happened to be the people who walked in the store and purchased it as I did (Therefore unverified purchaser). Most likely theses are competitors providing most of the bad reviews. The one in store with a SKU of 234-995 is what I purchased. It's appearance is different from the pictures they show on here. I don't know if there's any difference as far as performance goes. See attached photographs.

                                  I became tired of throwing away money at cheap plastic sprinklers that would only last a year or two. I have only had this sprinkler for about a month. But I am impressed with the sturdiness and construction of this unit. None of the moving mechanisms are plastic. Water flow is gentle and steady. So far, worth the money.

                                  Bought mine today. It's going back to Home Depot tomorrow. Brand new out of the box and it hasn't swept or oscillated one time. The mechanism moved accordingly when I manually moved the tabs but will not oscillate on its own. Too bad for a product marked "Premium" and "Lifetime Manufacturer Warranty." Packaging also sells the product as up to 4000 sq ft but the online description and receipt state 3900 sq ft. I would expect better quality control and product testing.

                                  We do test square footage and with 60 PSI dynamic pressure at the sprinkler coupling you will get the square footage we show on the packaging. Please contact us at www.melnor/contact and we will work with you on the coverage and adjusting the sprinkler. Please put Ben in the subject line and I will contact you and if we find that the sprinkler is defective we will send you a replacement under the lifetime warranty..
