View Full Version : Ryan v Classen/Lesco Towable Aerator

I've narrowed down my search for a quality towable aerator to the Ryan and Classen/Lesco. I want the electric lift kit. Any one have input? I've done searches and seen a few members have these things...I am a newbie and do appreciate your help.

did you get the electric lift?

Yes, I got the electric lift kit. I rented a bluebird tow-behind for a while but got real tired of lugging the water jugs around-as well as the hand crank.

The bluebird pulled really nice cores and turned really nice-but I won't miss the cranking up n down!

can you take a picture of the setup?

I have the lesco 52" that i pull with my Z and it is a PITA to crank it up and down for walks/driveways etc. I was going to fabricate an electric trailer jack to lift/lower it from the seat of teh Z which would definitely speed things up plus it wouldn't tear the lawn in the corners.

I've got one from their manual but I can't seem to upload it due to it's size-and I'm unable to resize it. Sorry!
