I wish the Toro stand-on aerator pulled about 50% more plugs (that would be sweet). Can't add any more tines to the unit either (I crawled underneath).
Here's what I thought was illogical >>> location of fixed tines vs free-wheeling tines:
2 rows (total of 4 rows) of fixed tines at "each end" (causing turf tearing). 4 rows of "free-wheeling tines" in the "middle". Shouldn't the free-wheeling tines be on the outside??? Just wondering. Might be a reason -- not sure.
I say why not create more plugs per sq ft - even if they are only 2 1/2 inch deep??
