Who's got them since Spring?

How do they work?

Anyone put one on a WB?

biggest problems i've heard of is they grab (hook) everything, that they will ball up surface roots from trees like a tiller does.....lord help you if you ever get into any shallow underground fences or kite / contractors string....lol

they do look to be well built though!

I tried one out for a week and did not like it. It did ball everything up. I also had one guy soak his lawn prior to me getting there and I had huge clay balls forming. It took me longer to clean the unit than the aerating job. The power lift was necessary but very slow.
It did not work for my type of soil conditions. The demo tape is impressive and if you can get perfect conditions you may do ok. I am a plugging purist and most customers want to see the "dog turds" when I'm done.
