Melnor XT Turbo Oscillating Sprinkler with Flow Control: Product Review


Melnor has included some nice features on the XT Turbo Oscillating Sprinkler. The adjustment controls, though not intuitive, give you a lot of control over where the water goes, and the hose connector is easy to grip and turn. It works well at both higher and lower water pressure (although coverage is less at lower pressure, it still oscillates). Overall, it's a very good sprinkler with lots of features and is a good choice for Continue Reading


Melnor XT MiniMax Turbo Oscillating Sprinkler: Product Review


We love all of the adjustments you can make on this sprinkler. From flow control to length and width adjustment, you can really customize the Melnor XT MiniMax Turbo Oscillating Sprinkler for your yard or garden.

It doesn't have Continue Reading

At only $9.97, the Melnor Talon bypass pruner is a perfect example of “you get what you pay for.” It works but it has some quality issues (burrs form on the cutting blade), it cuts through only ¾-inch branches (rather than the claimed 1 inch), and it pinches your hands with each cut. If you have large hands and a limited budget, this pruner may work for you. If you have small hands, give it Continue Reading


Melnor Talon Telescoping Bypass Lopper: Product Review


Melnor’s Talon lopper has some nice features, like strong, curved aluminum handles, a very sharp cutting blade, and extendable handles for extra leverage. And it cuts cleanly through 2-inch branches. But the extendable handles slipped constantly, the bumpers fell out, a handle grip fell off and the blade developed burrs. If Melnor can clean up the quality control problems, this would be a very nice lopper. Continue Reading
