I bought this in 09/06, have used it a lot for almost 2 years. Have had no trouble with it at all, works as well as any oscillating sprinkler I have ever had. Covers a large area as claimed. Eventually it will wear out and then I will see whether the "Lifetime warranty" will be honored. I am saving the purchase receipt & packaging. If it is honored then I would give this 5 stars.

After going through cheaper sprinklers every year or two, I decided to pay a lot more for what looked like a much more durable sprinkler. After about 2 years of infrequent use it stopped working. I hope I can find the receipt, and I hope they honor the guarantee. Like the other reviewers, I guess it's more cost-effective to just buy a cheapie every year or 2.
I wish I'd thought to read these reviews BEFORE I bought it!

    Comments about MELNOR-GARDENA Ace Oscillating Sprinkler (360MA):

    Ours has lasted over 5 years, but we have soft water.
    I could understand people with hard water having trouble with
    this sprinkler since lime buildup inside the "motor" would
    definitely gum it up. I would suggest spraying some WD40 or
    other light lubricant into the water inlet and then blowing
    through it to operate the motor ( ours moves easily with
    very little air pressure ) and lubricate it if you're storing
    it for the season or won't be using it for awhile.

    No Different Than Cheap Plastic Ones

        Comments about MELNOR-GARDENA Ace Oscillating Sprinkler (360MA):

        I bought this one thinking it was better than the plastic ones from the big box stores. I was wrong. The base is metal but the rest of the unit is cheap plastic. Mine stopped oscillating after two seasons. You can't take the plastic unit apart nor can you buy replacement parts. I live in CT so it was used only a few months each season. I am very dissappointed with product, especially with the inability to buy a replacement part. I will probably not buy ACE products again.

        Comments about MELNOR-GARDENA Ace Oscillating Sprinkler (360MA):

        Others have found that paying extra for a metal well constructed sprinkler is, for the moment, well founded. UV rays, however have a deleterious effect on plastic and make it brittle. So after a year or two, adjusting the spray causes the adjusters to snap and therefore no longer easy t adjust. Unfortunately, these cannot be replaced. ( I looked and there are no replacement parts although it would appear to be an easy fix.) I think the planned obsolescence geniuses couldn't have done a better job! These adjusters should have been made of brass. May as well buy the cheap ones and replace every other year.

          Used this only during a dry season for 2 or 3 years. Rotation has been unreliable now won't work at all. Difficult to connect hose to because female coupling is tight against the body. The filter screen is not removable so it is hard to clean.

            Here I am again. It did wear out (stopped oscillating) after 5 seasons. I took the sprinkler, original box, & receipt back to the store and they gave me a new one absolutely free. Can't beat that. New one works great. I'm saving the box & receipt for next time.

                Worked well for a couple of watering seasons, then the motor quits, just like the cheaper models. Don't waste your money on this one thinking you'll enjoy the advertised extra long life motor.

                Bought this sprinkler for the dry season and it didn't last a year. I bought the most expensive to last but I'm the fool, it's the worst I have ever bought from Ace and they're right in as you can't get replacement parts.

                  I've used this sprinkler for lawn watering for 2-3 years. Bought it because of its strong metal base; seemed very solid, but the cartridge is still plastic. Oscillation has stopped functioning dependably -- sticks on one position. I will attempt return, but do not have receipt. Hopefully, lifetime warranty will be honored.
