    Walking sprinkler modifications

    My walking sprinkler would get bogged down in patches of bare ground or depressions.
    I purchased a second set of rear wheels.
    I was having the same results with the wheels directly attached to each other.
    I made a couple of spacers to widen the wheel base.
    I no longer have a problem with the sprinkler getting bogged down.
    Thanks
