IDK if Ryan is still on the market, but you get what you pay for. At one time OMC(Outboard Marine Corp.) even owned them by the tag on my overseeder. Last I knew Ryan was owned by the Bobcat Z and Bunton Z people. Regardless I hated the lesco aerator I used to rent, it was clunky, controls were loose, light, wasn't very rugged looking and it was brand new. Not some old rental pile, new.
