Lawn Solution's 2011 Riding Turf Aerifier

Lawn Solution redefined the word "productivity" when it came to aerators in 2009 with the introduction of their 1st riding aerator and their new 2011 model is doing it again. New for this fall is a 16hp Kawasaki powered unit that is more compact, lower to the ground, and adds more speed with more precise controls which is important when controlling the ground breaking 1,300 lbs of down pressure this unit exerts over the tines while pulling 4"-5" plugs at speeds up to 7 mph even on hills.

When ordering, let us know you are a LawnSite member and get free freight (lower 48 only) on orders placed by July 4th. Lead times for new units are 2-3 weeks.

When it comes to the core spikes, how hard is it to work on/maintain or replace?

Very easy...1 bolt per tine and there is an access panel to get to them. Don't even have to get on the ground. Pull up a chair and change them....but we haven't replaced or shipped out even 1 tine for service in 2.5 years....that could be a problem for us trying to make money on service parts.

How far out are orders on these for this year? Just wondering if it is remotely possible to have one delivered by early March or late February?

Need to know the total weight of unit and some dimensions looking down on the unit.

Is the spacing between tines L/R 3.5" on this aerator?

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the standard spacing side to side 4.0" on BlueBirds, Ryans etc.?

Delivery won't be a problem....we installed a dedicated ASM line to build these.

Yes, the tine spacing is closer on our aerator.

I was watching the lawn solutions YouTube channel last night and it looked like the time spacing on the 24" WB dual hydro unit is wider than 3.5" ....?

Any options(spreader) available with this?

Your you tube video said that there are attachments available for this machine but the website doesn't list any. Any ideas on when the website will be updated? Thanks. Nice aerator.

Hey David,

I'm in Plymouth, MA. and have rented your ride-on from one of the local rental companies several times.
But for what its worth maybe you could consider making the foot button a bit taller. I found that just riding in a "natural' position caused me to activate the aerator accidentally many times.
Also, the springs that connect the operating handles to the hydraulics are extremely stiff and make it difficult to operate at speed.

It would not prevent me from buying one, but it would make it alot easier to operate.

Nice job.
