Purchased this summer before last and like the others, pole bends, won't stand up straight and screws and bolts fall out constantly. Entire thing turned black and I can find nothing to restore color. Tried to contact company for assistance to no avail. I paid $110.00 for this. I only have it out in the summer, store in the shed for the winter. Had not held up for the price. Would love to be able to restore color to original bronze. For the price, expected better.

Got this yesterday and it is nicer than what I had imagined. The only problem is it needs more stakes to stabilize it in the ground. It come with only one attached to the pole, needs 3.

I loved this spinner when I first got it. When I went to put it out the 2nd year I found problems with the pole. After screwing the mid section to the bottom and putting It up, it would not stand up straight. I tried a few thing to get it to stand up without leaning short of having it welded. I also purchased a Solar Flower Spinner that I love and I see that the pole sections are much thicker and really put together well. I called customer service to see if maybe they remade the pole for the Kinetic but sadly no. I could purchase another pole section but feel I would need to buy both sections and would only have the same trouble in the future. Its a shame I did like it.

I adore this beautiful wind spinner! Compliments abound from anyone who enters our back yard! Very soothing to kick back on the deck and watch this lovely sculpture spin in the wind. Love it! Would love a taller version in the future for a spot near our pool.

I purchased this 2 years ago. It looks and performs as well as it did when I first got it. It is sturdy and beautiful. Blows in all directions depending on the wind. It has held up in strong MN storms. I keep it out all year long and it has weathered perfectly during our extreme winters. Everybody who comes to our home comments on how much they like our piece of "art" in the front garden! Couldn't be happier!

Got this for my daughter. She loved it till the first wind came along and bent the cheap rod. Needs something more robust to hold this in the ground and withstand wind. The poor rods won't even hold together now. Had to put a solid piece of steel inside to make it stand up. 2 stars for the design and idea. Too bad it didn't hold up.

had this spinner for the second year now and we only put it out in spring and summer.It has fallen apart about 4 times already and have to look for the screws and washers in the soil to put it back together again
Rated 1 out of 5 by rosemarie Product improvement badly needed
I have purchased 3 of these and loved them a lot, at first. I am having the same problems a lot of other reviewers are mentioning - the pole keeps unscrewing itself and then bends so that you can no longer screw it together and the nuts on the spinner come off. I purchased new nuts/washers and now one side of the spinner seems to spin itself tight. For the price paid, these problems really make me quite mad. Also, the prongs are not nearly enough to keep this in the ground and steady. Would like the engineers who came up with this to re-examine their design quite significantly!

Rec'd this as gift , it spins really good , but it has a limit on how much wind... we had it a week and a storm come though with 30 mile gusts , destroyed it in no time... the brazing on the joints is not strong enough. If you have little to moderate wind you might be OK , but if in strong wind area don't buy this!
Rated 5 out of 5 by EnquiringMinds1 Extremely happy with my purchase
Cannot be more pleased with this wonderful addition to my yard. We did read the reviews before making the purchase in December, and when we put it in the yard after Christmas - we did 2 things. I polyurethaned the entire thing. Don't know that it was necessary but wanted to reduce the chance of rust. Based on other reviews, we also went to the hardware store and made a purchase. Not sure what it is called but I'll call it a green garden stake. It is 7-8 foot and is plastic coated metal - I think we paid about $4 dollars for it. Husband drove it 1/2 way into the ground and then zip-tied to the wind spinner. We did this because some people stated the spinner's core rod wanted to bend. Since we are on a hill and often receive 20-30 mph winds, we decided to try this. We are in the STL area and have quite a variety of weather in the last 2 months. The spinner is wonderful to watch. It catches the slightest breeze. Do the 2 pieces spin the same direction - at times yes and at other times different directions. It's all about the wind. Would definitely buy again!!!

liked spinner a lot, but pole bends or unscrews, only 2 prongs not enough to hold in place. need to hold in place with a large rock. glad to c they listened to every ones complaints & fixed these problems. unfortunately I did order another model before they fixed these problems completely, which I haven't put up yet. did order another model with the new improvements. hopefully my son can fix the other ones.
