Nelson Raintrain Traveling Sprinkler is very nice product. I’ve wanted one of these for ages and Amazon’s global delivery made it a viable option. (I nearly wrote a negative review about the delivery but just because my local distrubution hub (yodel) lost the parcel for a few days and then delivered the package in a battered state this is probably just unlucky – it took about 12 days overall).

Its built like a tank and copes fairly well with slopes and poor ground, but I wouldnt use it on completely bare earth though as I would imagine it might bog down on wet light soil.

The benefit of being able to set it going and not have to move the sprinkler every 15 minutes is far greater than I thought it would be – well worth getting if you have a larger lawn. Ive so far had it towing 60 feet of hose – I think it will do 100 no problem – I would say our water pressure is moderate.

I had an adaptor to convert to 1/2 hose lying around but you will likely need to get one.

The gear box and gears are plastic – which isnt a surprise and look like they can be replaced as a piece if needed – but I dont think it will strip them easily – as a precaution I move it around with the gear lever in neutral.
