Ours is not a commercial unit. We dont do enough to warrant the cost of a commercial aerator. Maybe 15 to 20 every fall. Ours is a 40" JD with 28 spoons. I was worried when I bought it that they would be far apart and I would have to go over everything twice. It actually pokes 3"+ and they are nice and tightly spaced! It is built by brinley to JD specs (more supports and and thicker steel). I bought it at the JD dealer.
