Very happy with Melnor products
I’ve been using a Melnor spray nozzle and another Melnor sprinkler (model XT4100) for more than a year now through spring, summer and two autumns plus a winter of storage and both continue to perform very well.
Had more landscaping and sod placed this fall and needed to be running two sprinklers at once, so decided to add this XT4200 model. Two of its features are the same as the model I had (adjustable oscillation up to 180-degrees; adjustable width from narrow (straight-ahead) to a wide fan spread). Plus it adds a third feature -- a little switch that turns the water flow from high to low without turning it off, which is very useful for keeping me dry while I reposition the sprinkler :) Very pleased with Melnor and this model.

If it holds up it’ll be the best one yet
This was purchased to replace an old Melnor oscillating sprinkler that stopped rotating. The newer version says has a long life motor but with only a short test period it’s hard to tell. The width control works okay and is similar to Gardena sprinklers. Overall the coverage is very even, the unit operates quietly, and it covers the largest area of any sprinkler I’ve tried. If it holds up it’ll be the best one yet.

Five Stars, when it works.
This thing is completely brilliant. It's made watering my two very differently sized front and back yards a cinch.
UPDATE: I've had this for 5 months, and when it worked it was perfect. Now it has stopped oscillating and only shoots water to one location. I can still adjust its position if I want to, but that defeats the entire purpose of buying an oscillating sprinkler. Might as well have a stationary sprinkler at this point.

I have waited for a few weeks to write my review because I don't like giving less than perfect reviews, however I am do very disappointed. I bought cause of the description that it could go to a 70 ft length. I have super water pressure and can not begin to get that length. Very disappointed.

Great for lawn of all sizes!!!!
This past summer my wife and I called True Green to come service our lawn as it had gotten pretty bad. They did a great job of making it greener and healthier but we got tired of having to water it manually as we do not have a sprinkler system. I finally gave in and bought a sprinkler to save time. After a lot of research I finally bought this sprinkler and I could not be happier!! This sprinkler provides a great force and watering my lawn has been easier. It is really easy to change the settings on the sprinkler and it is easily able to cover my large lawn (I do have to move it a couple of times because of some trees that are in the way). I highly recommend this product!

Love the easy adjustments
Great product. I like the two easy adjustments that can be made, 1) width of spray and 2) range of travel. I would have give it a 5-star if made out of heavier plastic or metal.

BEST SPRINKLER EVER!
You can set this exactly as you want and it works perfect. (You do have to read the directions first!!) I didn't and wondered why it didn't make a larger spray, well, you have to set everything and it is easy to understand too. Love it. MBC

Does the trick!
Super, quality product for the money. Does the trick. Can be adjusted as it oscillates. Plastic but a heavier plastic. Nice distribution and variety of control options.

GREAT SPRINKLER!! Very happy! You can drop it anywhere and adjust it in any direction to water a specific area. Uneven ground doesn't matter, just adjust the head and set the width and length. Good to go!

no need for a rain dance
This is the BEST sprinkler that I have ever used. I liked the one I had before (another brand, that worked great) but this one covers so much more and the adjustment is great. I can set it so I'm not watering things like the side of my house.
I liked it so much I went back and purchased a second one
