Just purchased a model 1973, the one with both adjustable sweep and width, no pressure regulator. Couldn't tell from the Amazon info if the sprinkler came with a female coupler for the hose or not, so I purchased a Gardena hose outlet end coupler ($5.10 with USPS shipping). Save your money - there was one in the box with the sprinkler. At least there was in mine. Also, the male coupler in the sprinkler unscrews and a standard hose end fits, but the plastic sprinkler might not stand too much attaching and removing. There was no separate instruction sheet or booklet, but the parts diagram printed on the box makes everything quite clear. The sprinkler is actually made in Germany.

Attaching: I put the sprinkler on a home made stand above a bed of shrubs so it has the weight of the hose hanging off the coupler. We'll see how it lasts. Frame and barrel seem quite sturdy, good plastic rather than cheesy. Coupler is a strong and tight fit. Base seems very light but I used plastic cable ties to fasten it down and it feels quite rigid.

Adjusting: Totally simple. The sweep limiters operate independently so each side can be customized for range. The width of the fan adjusts easily with a dial on each end of the nozzle row, so again each side of the fan can be adjusted. Nice.

Operating: Works very well even at low pressures. One nozzle was not working well but cranking the pressure up to full cleared it immediately. Very easy to duck in while it's working and make adjustments.

Maintenance: We'll see how it lasts. Others have complained about the limited life of these sprinklers. One nice touch is that the Gardena sprinklers are made to be dismantled easily by the owner to clean them, not a common feature in our throw-away world. Our municipal water isn't terribly hard here and this sprinkler only runs a few times a week so I expect decent performance.

We bought 3 of these. 2 failed in the second season and the 3rd works only intermittently. They quit oscillating. While they worked, they were terrific.

I bought this because it looked like a well designed, german made product, which it was! However because I was using it with outdoor spigots, from which I had bypassed my whole house filtering system, the small amount of sediment remaining in the well water supply quickly clogged the small spray orifices. No amount of cleaning the nozzles, or flushing helped. The unit was returned. It would be great for city supplied water systems.

I really hesitate to give this thing 5 stars because it is dang expensive for a sprinkler but after burning through 3 cheapo sprinklers in the past 2 years I figured I'd give it a shot. The Gardena is definitely the best of the bunch. It made it through an entire summer without and problems. I really like that the sprinkler is very easy to adjust both width and oscillation. The snap-on / snap-off aspect is a bit gimmicky and maybe if I invested in the "system" for my other sprayer attachments it would be valuable but I don't use it. I'm curious what others who gave this 1-3 stars would propose as a better product? This is the best sprinkler in a world of bad/mediocre sprinklers.

UPDATE
10/17/2013 - It's been another year and this thing is still going strong and is as smooth as when i first bought it. It now has earned its starts.

I've had a number of sprinklers over the year and Gardena has always produced the highest quality solutions. I was tired with the cheap sprinklers I've picked up at local that would either not live up to the claims on the boxes or simply break within a few months. I've owned the Gardena 1973 Aquazoom for 3 months now and it is by far one of my favorite sprinklers allowing me to get those trouble areas without watering the street. This sprinkler features the ability to shrink or widen both width and distance of spray. Well worth the investment. The only downside I see is the fact that the connection is a piece of ABS plastic. Thats the weakest point of any sprinkler and may end up being the weak point on the product.

If this is now indicitive of German engineering/manufacturing/quality control, I'll buy Chinese products! Sure worked well when it worked, but apparently some internal gears started slipping after 3 weeks of operation and the oscillation became completely hung up after about 4 weeks. Come on, this thing should last longer than 4 weeks!

These sprinklers are awesome! You wouldn't think it, but there are a ton of features on this unit, both left and right sides can have their width adjusted and you can set the oscillation very easily. The quick connect system is great and seems pretty solid & convenient. Loved the first one I bought so much that I bought a 2nd for the backyard.

I have a 2007 model (350/T) that broke in just under 4 years! So this review is on the current equivalent. This was great while it lasted but it no longer oscillates making the sprinkler useless. I kept it in a shed out of the sun when not in use so it looks like new. But with a 12 month warranty it is now just trash! Gardena must need to change the model numbers too not attract bad reviews. I did a web search and found other purchasers with this type of issue. For an expensive sprinkler this is pathetic.
