You guys will be glad that you bought the rider. The one thing to remember is not to take too sharp of a turn with your tines down. This is where other guys have be having problems with their belts breaking. Try to run straight lines and overlap your areas so you can lift up your tines while you turn around....and then re-engage your tines to start pulling new plugs.
Good luck with your new machine!!! Can't wait until Toro/ExMark comes out with their new attachments for the 30" Aerator....they have a hitch hookup in the front.
