Best sprinkler I've ever had!
This sprinkler was better than I expected. You can direct the flow of the water to exactly where you want it, even narrow spaces. The flow is strong and the timer is very helpful. The easy release feature makes it easier to connect and disconnect the hose. It is a little more heavy duty than plain plastic sprinklers but with the extra pricing. Highly recommend this sprinkler!

Very good with a couple of quirks.
Overall a good product which delivers a good amount of water to a large area, the only issue we had was the way the timer connects to the sprinkler body, the timer sits on the base ring and it causes it to be at a slight angle which makes the quick connect feature a little tricky, you have to use some force to get it connected.
We like the adjustments for the width of the spray and also the oscillator afjustment and it has good weight which keepsit from moving during operation.

The Luxury Sports Car of Oscillating Sprinklers
The controls for width and length of spray area are easy to use. The water timer is the wind-up type and so far works well. The flow knob adjusts water flow. It oscillates even on very low flow, and is very good at sprinkling on my heavy clay soil. For instance, I use it to slowly sprinkle , like gently hand watering, and with little runoff, a bush planted in soil so hard it's like concrete. It's the only sprinkler I've found that can water a row of Italian Cypress tress with a 3' x 25' sprinkle area. I like the Gardena hose connectors and have found them to be surprisingly durable. The overall construction and quality of plastic is very good.
The Achilles heal may be the length of the hose connection, timer, and base connection, where age may make it prone to crack. Time will tell. If not for that I would rate it 5 stars.

Worth every penny.
Okay, I have tried several sprinklers and by far this is the best one. You can adjust it every way you possibly need to for your lawn. I have several different sections, most long and skinny and it adjusts to the different sizes in a matter of seconds. I am considering buying more of them and running them together. I have had full sprinkler systems in every house I've had in the last 10 years except this house. This is the next best thing.

No matter which hose is attached to the ends of this sprinkler, it leaks at the joints. Breaks apart if you try to move the sprinkler. The ends of the sprinkler, both male and female, should be made of metal, and not plastic. I am not impressed at all. I wish I would have saved the box, because I would return it in a heartbeat.

If you do not have decent water pressure, this sprinkler is not for you. My cheap $18.00 Gilmor sprinkler works better and it covers a lot more area than the Gardena. The Gardena is nice if you need to really hone in on tight areas and a small garden. If you need to water large areas, it's not worth the money. The cheap old oscillating sprinklers are much better and less complicated..

We LOVE this sprinkler. I have a large yard with different curves/angles where the grass is. The fact that you can adjust how wide or narrow it is, how much it moves forward or backward, is wonderful! Plus the timer on it is a life saver. I don't know how many times I've left the water on to water plants.

Does not cover the amount of area you would expect. Can also see where someone without mechanical-type experience could literally break the timer or sprinkler connect due to the tightness of the fitting of each together. If you have a small lawn area, this may work perfectly.

Nice addition to my Gardena sprinklers.
Works great for narrow spaces but I prefer Gardena's Aquazoom line for larger areas to be watered.

I love this versatile sprinkler. Seems a little plasticky, so hope it lasts a long time. Saves me a lot of time in watering by hand or using a traditional sprinkler that doesn't move automatically and I never forget to turn off the water with the hand auto timer.
