Have a question for you guys. Has anyone used a plug aerator from Lowes or Home Depot, the kind that you tow behind a tractor? Are they effective? Second part, someone told me that aerating works better if you have higher rpms, so would this trailer/aerator work behind a 4 wheeler?

If you go too fast you will tear things up, penetration is based on weight and moisture content of soil. If they rent ryan or blue bird they are good walk behind machines, i dont know about the tow behinds
