I have been made aware of an aerator that is reciprocating and can continue to aerate forwards then transition to reverse. It looks to be infinitely variable hydro drive so the sky is the limit on plug count. Folks have accused me of being OCD on that plug count per square foot issue.

So if a lawn you're aerating really has a ton of thatch....I'd much rather do some slow boat single passes maybe (2) passes with this unit vs 8 or more passes with a rolling tine unit....than flail blade and literally tear up a lawn with a true and proper dethatch....not a flimsy cosmetic scrape the turf and miss label the service as dethatch...yet still the thatch remains.
