Hey, how much work do you do? How much do you want to spend? <p>Probably I am like you-- just starting out with an aerating service. I did a lot/mucho reading up on the topic. Core aerating is the only way to go...<p>This year for my money, I bought a used Ryan Lawnaire V walk behind machine. I had to refurbish it this winter, but am starting to capture $$$ already. For about $5k you could get into the Cadillac Ryan Lawnaire 28. It is much more user friendly; it is configured on a three wheel setup for real agile maneuvering, and used a cam type config to plunge the tines into the soil, unlike my unit which operates like a drum.<p>Own a Z? I looked real hard at a JrCO front mount plugger aerator. It lists for about $1300 with the electric lift solenoid. Would definitely demo whatever you plan to purchase before handing over the dough. Hope this is helpful.<p><p><br>Call Jrco direct @ 800 966 8442. They are out of Minneapolis, MN<p><br>
