Comments about Product: The Wind and Weather finally shipped this item which took forever, the hardware needed to put it together was missing a piece and so weeks later I still can't use my wind spinner. Who knows how long it will take to get the part? I will never buy anything from this ill-run, mismanaged business again. They are very good at saying "I'm sorry" if that's what you want to pay for, this is the "I'm sorry" sorry excuse for a business is good for.I know they won't print this review the inept cowards!
Comments about Product: Bought this spinner to add something new and fresh to my garden. We love it - it spins in even the slightest breeze. Also has a wonderful copper color that goes well with the landscape!
Comments about Product: I enjoyed for one season until the pole will no longer screw together. The thread area is too short and constantly came unscrewed with the wind. Now I am trying to find someone to repair. Not happy about that.
Comments about Product: I've just come back from the machine shop where I have had this spinner repaired again. First time was to repair the spinner which was damaged in shipping...one of the arms had broken off. Wasn't worth sending it back (paying for shipping, etc., and waiting for a new one.) Today I took it in because another arm broke off. While I was having that fixed, I asked that the stake be welded as one piece. The wind and movement of the spinner causes the stake to unscrew and the top begins to bend. Now the spinner is spinning merrily. Overall, I'm very pleased with it, but when the cost of repair tops the cost of the spinner, it will find a new home. I do dismantle it when it is stormy, but it shouldn't spin apart in Louisiana wind. This isn't Oklahoma or north Texas.
Comments about Product: LOVED the look of this, but it breaks easily. Ours broke once, paid to have it welded, broke again, paid again to have it welded heavier and then only put it out in fair weather. Upon the third break, it went into the garbage. Had so many compliments, but it doesn't hold up because of the flimsy support post.
Comments about Product: Directions were missing, but after a try or two, got it put together and up in less than 20 minutes. Great movement, even in slightest breeze. fascinating to watch, sometimes sides spin together, other times, each side spins reverse of the other. Really captivating activity.
Comments about Product: We put this wind spinner together and set it up in our yard immediately. It looks just wonderful there and is fun to watch. Already several neighbors have complimented us on it. The ground was a little soft from rain when we put it up, so we had to do a little adjusting to brace it until the ground hardened around it. We've had a lot of wind lately and it is withstanding the wind just fine. We would definitely order this again.
Comments about Product: This wind spinner has received very positive reviews when given as a gift, we are now considering one for our own yard as it is quite beautiful, durable, and a real point of interest.
Comments about Product: I just purchased this garden spinner, and am very pleased with it. It is very well made, easy to assemble, and looks great in my yard. It is just spinning away right now in a light breeze, and is fun to watch.
Comments about Product: I truly love this wind spinner! The design is different and elegant. The materials are of high quality & heft, and are a beautiful dark coppery color.
It came within a day or two of ordering and was a total snap to assemble -- maybe 15 minutes including ALL unpacking, unwrapping of pieces, reading the simple instructions, and actual assembly & placement.
The spinner is very responsive to most breezes. I have seen both 1 and 2 wheels turning in the same direction and, best of all, both wheels spinning in opposite directions -- wondrous indeed! It really creates a beautiful show, one that is hard to take your eyes from.
My one beef is that the entire wheel assembly itself will spin around on its central pole, changing how much of the actual round wheels you can see, etc. And since I have mine in a large perennial bed against the front wall of my home, that tends to spoil the effect a bit. So I wish there were an option to "lock" the head assembly in one chosen position atop the central pole, while still leaving each wheel free to turn independently.
However, if you've got yours set up in a more open space, this probably isn't a problem. Not to mention that this spinner is also striking and handsome just standing still -- a real sculpture I don't regret buying even if it never spun again.
Bottom line: You just can't miss with this gorgeous wind spinner -- and you'll enjoy all the compliments you'll be getting, too!
Comments about Product: The wind spinner is absolutely awesome to watch and I get tons of compliments on it. I bought four for Mothers day gifts. Only issue at all is they are not sturdy in moderate wind. We inserted a long metal pipe in each and now they work wonderfully. But at [$], the rod should be included.
Comments about Product: I just set this up at our coastal home as a garden accent. As soon as I installed it, it began spinning, and I don't think it has stopped since. The mechanism is so well balanced, both sides spin independently & the entire spinning part rotates on the shaft as well. Even my spouse likes it and he doesn't like garden art.
Comments about Product: this is in my garden and can be seen from the kitchen windows as wll as the patio. It is a very good buy. It spins easily in the breeze and seems to be very well constructed. I wholeHeartedly recommend this product. Shipping was prompt and the item arrived in good shape. Set up took under five minutes. I really do love it
Comments about Product: This does spin in a very light breeze, and the two wheels spin independently. However the wind speed must be just right for them to spin in opposite directions. I don't know about the six feet tall part--maybe it is before you put the two-pronged mounting pole in the ground. But it is nice to watch and unless the air is perfectly calm, it is always moving.
Comments about Product: The spoon spinner would be a real joy to watch as it spins in the breeze but it doesn't hold up to the winds in eastern New Mexico. I had it up 2 hours when the wind picked up and in no time, both sides of the spinner were beating against each other and the brackets that held them on to turn had broken. Now my husband needs to design something sturdier to hold the paddles on while turning. I was so disappointed. Maybe it can be made to work in a stronger wind as it is so relaxing to watch it spin.
Comments about Product: We have enjoyed our wind mill flower all summer. We put it out in the field behind the house (any closer made this seasick prone shopper get a bit of vertigo) and its graceful, complex motions blend with nature beautifully. I am anxious to see it after it snows. We have already given one to friends who live at the edge of a river where the breezes are in constant play.
Comments about Product: This was a birthday gift to myself and I love it! There is plenty of wind here most of the time, so it gets a real workout. It needed some additional anchoring to keep it from rocking around. May eventually put it in a cement base, if winds prove too frisky. Adds a real sculptural/artistic touch to the day lilly bed, which is "alive" only during bloom season.
Comments about Product: I place this item in my daylily garden. It is so entertaining to watch that I want one nearer the house now. I can't bear to move this one because I love it where I placed it too. I just can't get enough of it, especially when the wind is blowing.
Comments about Product: I was surprisingly pleased with the performance of this item. I bought it for a friend after seeing a similar item that I inquired about and found out that the item was much more expensive than this one. The recipient may have used stronger bolts to secure the item as was a concern from other consumers, but my friend lives across the street and I admire the item every day:)
Comments about Product: This product is unusual and cool to watch. I have had several people comment about it in my yard. The only disappointing thing that caused me to rate it 4 stars instead of 5 was that when it came, there was a piece missing in the bar that holds the spinner which made the item unstable in the wind. For the cost, I would have expected all pieces to be there. However, my husband was able to come up with a solution on his own that worked which was great because I didn't want to return it.
Comments about Product: I received my Kinetic Spinner in the mail yesterday, my husband assembled it (very easy to do) and we put in our flower garden, we always have some sort of breeze blowing through our yard,
the spinner took off spinning immediately, and it was just a gentle breeze. I absolutely love it !!
It is so unique and really adds to our garden.
