I am looking to purchase a good aerator that will pull cores. Any suggestions on brands would be appreciated

Check out the Plugr brand... that's what we've found to be the best... they are very easy to operate and do a great job.

As much as I like my Plugr, I believe a more traditional core aerator (Classen, Lesco, Ryan, etc.) would do better in hard soils such as clay. When conditions are pretty good, nothing pulls cores nicer than a Plugr (even in moist clay). But when things get hard (during dry periods, etc.), the Plugr often bounces on top of the ground more than most I've run.

The Plugr is good in heavy clay soils... it operates off a crankshaft design and pounds the tine into the soil instead of just rolling over it like other brands.

Thanks for the replies. I suppose in my original question I should have added does the core aeration process work or is it a waste of time. How does it help the grass?

My area is epidemic with rocks. Lets just say rototilling can be a real chore at times. :hammerhead:

Which aerator is best in rocky soil? Or should I ask tolerates rocky soil the best? Replacement core tips etc. :confused:
