John Deere Traveling Sprinkler
Average Rating: 2.5
The Gilmour Group 4010J John Deere Traveling Sprinkler is perfectly suited for odd shaped yards! Simply lay out the hose where you need water, and the sprinkler will follow it to deliver water right where you want it. This John Deere sprinkler boasts a heavy-duty die-cast iron body; it provides water coverage up to 13,500 square feet and can travel up to 200 feet. The adjustable spray arm can cover an area anywhere from 15 to 55 feet in diameter, and a shut-off ramp placed along the route stops the sprinkler and automatically shuts off the water.

4010 reviewSunday, October 03, 2010
This is an excellent product if you know how to use it. Gears last forever if the sprinkler is allowed to move forward. If it is blocked from traveling and continues to run it will strip the gears in the transmission. I have had 2 of these for 5 years and, because of several occurances of blocked travel this season , I am replacing a transmission. The one drawback is obtaining parts. I have been able to obtain a new transmission and spray arms. I am hoping to find parts in order to repair the damaged transmission. the gear that strips easist is the vertical worm gear it appears to be made of polypropoline, the others are harder nylon.
Durable, fun novelty

Replacement partsThursday, May 28, 2009
I think the previous reviewers did very little to find replacemen parts. I did a Google search and found Gilmour's website. If you go there they were VERY helpful. They are sending me a NEW motor free of charge to replace mine. The top part of the motor that attached to the arm broke. Their customer service was VERY friendly and helpful. There is a phone number on the tractor. I would bet that they also give the same great service over the phone!
Broken Arm - Throw AwayMonday, May 11, 2009
Wish that I had read these reviews before I purchased the product. I broke one of the aluminum arms - can't be replaced. For these prices, it should be maintainable, and not a throw-away.
no replacement partsSaturday, August 30, 2008
I have used mine for about 20 times already the gears are stripped and one of the tips has blown off. Nowhere can you buy replacement parts. For the cost, no value here.

Gears brokeFriday, August 08, 2008
I've only owned mine for one season and the gears are already stripped. Has only been used approximately 25 times. I have been unable to find replacement parts. Cannot recommend.
Does odd shaped lawns very well.
Did not hold up to even minor usage.
