Well, it is very sturdy and not prone to cracking as I often flip it off the new lawn to reposition and it hard lands. It covers an amazingly wide area very efficiently. It has cut my watering time to half. I love it and I highly, highly recommend it.
My backyard was tore up due to some water issues so my wife and I laid down grass seed to try to revive our lawn. This sprinkler works better than most of what we currently own, even though many are also on the newer side. The distance that the water spreads may depend on the hose and water pressure of the house but this covers a large portion of my backyard and works great.
Because it is winter - and still freezing at night, I am only able to comment on its physical build and features. I will update my review as soon as I can get this product set up in the yard. I just had to buy it as I am in a new home and trying to ready myself for spring! This sprinkler is light weight, BUT made with heavy-duty polymers - which means NO RUST! The seals look tight, and there is the option to link multiple sprinklers down the same hose via the open port on the opposite side of where the hose connects - or not, and cap it off. The spinning extension is nice and loose. I anticipate great watering in my near future. Definitely worth the small cost! Enjoy!
I think I will also end up using this for watering some parts of our lawn with dry patches while the kids can have fun running through it. Overall, a well made sprinkler worth the price.
This is the 1st sprinkler we've ever purchased (we're around 40). It's been a brutal dry summer, and I FINALLY am sick of having the ugliest, most dry, brown yard in the neighborhood. The yards neighboring us on either side are super green and lush, so it makes ours look even worse. So I did a lot of research trying to find the best sprinkler for our situation. Something that would be effective and cover a large area, therefore allowing us to only need to move it a few times to cover the entire front and back lawns. This one does seem to do the trick!
