True. You can aerate with these machines when the walk behind units won't leave much of a divot. Gentle curves not problem. Tight corners can tear some. The ride on units can probably perform a double pass of aeration and still out produce a walk behind at the end of the day to speed and no fatigue. The controls are probably touchier do to less travel fore and aft of neutral. Pretty much the same as stand on mowers. They are expensive and we don't have enough aerations to justify one, but it does allow us to get done and move on to the next job faster as we are design, install, maintenance. We bought ours with the fleet discount and that makes it much more reasonably priced.
