The rain train does a nice job of watering but because it is pretty slow (dragging all that hose behind it), it does overwater a little bit. Also, sometimes it jumps off the hose so it is best to keep an eye on it. However, it did a good job during a recent weeks long dry spell with very hot temperatures. My lawn is alive and doing well. And it is a lot more efficient than trying to do it all by hand.

        I use this great product just about every day all summer long with absolutely NO PROBLEMS!

        Tip: For those that are posting transmission gear stripping problems... I have never moved the tractor, and I mean NEVER, without first shifting the transmission to neutral (the center indent on the shifter.). Don't know if this is the answer for everyone but it seems to be working for me.

        Unfortunately Nelson has a problem witht the plastic gears that they used in this model. The main drive gear splits either because of a molding defect or there was too much stress from an oversied drive axle. Both of mine broke in the exact same place. Both were puchased with 3 months of each other from two different stores.

              I've had for 12 years, still works perfectly. Wish I had the 3 speed settings, mine only has 2 (20/40 ft per hr). This works perfectly for my corner lot.

              I would definitely purchase another one.

                  We had our last one for at least 8 summers. When it stopped working I ran over to [@] and bought a similar product but a different brand. I came home and looked it up to read the reviews. They were all awful. Thank goodness Ace had this one like the one we had before!! It's the only place I could find it. We love the "set it and forget it" aspect of the sprinkler. It works perfectly on our small strip of grass backyard.

                      I use it to water my irregular shaped lawn. I used to spend so much time moving the hose around. Now i can leave the house to run errands and not have to worry about going home to move the hose or turn the water off, it shuts off when it reaches the ramp.

                      This is GREAT, I have two and have been using them a lot for three years. I have 2 acres to water with no in-ground system. I set these up and if I am home I pull the hose through after it travels some and it makes watering the yard/ trees very easy. If I am not at home they will shut off using the ramp. Only problems I have had is hose twist and if the ground is too wet. Both my bad. If there is a twist in the hose it will be a problem. I have over 400 feet of hose probably more like 600 and it comes in very handy.
