Does anyone own one? My current aerator is on its last leg and aeration is my biggest business.

If you do, what did you pay for it w/ the aerator attachment. Do you like it? Pros/Cons?


Thanks in advanced!

Might look at this one too. I have never used one but it looks like something to look into.

What didnt you like about it buttaluv?

and @T888 thank you for that link, that looks like a possibility.

I would really like to get a ride on aerator as my next piece, it currently takes me too long peryard, i could be making so much more but its holding me back. these ride on ones look effiecient.

You should try to get to the EXPO http://www.gie-expo.com/

I tried a zplugger there and formed my own opioions. That it is the worse machine offered.

i cant see how the zplug is sooooo bad, i run the zsprays and standers and this looks like a no brainer, other than the possibility if poor hillside traction i can not see why this machine is bashed on here. for both the thread maker and my sake, can someone please detail the pros and cons of this machine. thanks and good thread

Your welcome. I would also look into a tow behind for a tractor.

We have a crew in town running alot of the Z sprays and Z pluggers. They are ok machines. They do not do well up a hill unless you put weight on the front end. And then you take it off the back end and loose some traction.

And they are only factory direct, so we have to call the factory and order parts just the same as a end user can. Which if you do your own reparis its great. But for us who have crews that bring everything to us, its really hard to stock parts and give them timley serviceing on them.

They are fast, but id rather have the Jrco equipment and put it on one of my mowers! We have excelent luck with thoes. Just not quite as wide as the Z plugers.

That's where it is right there.

That thing is a money maker.

so the zplugger gets poor traction on hillsides. that is what you claim. ok, so what hills are we talking aobut small or actually steep. this way i can fully understand!
