I have a TA-19 I think. I bought it used on ebay. I like it. It's heavy and will wear you out if you use it all day, but for $850 it was a great deal. I like the Honda engine(starts with one real easy pull). The only thing I haven't figured out yet is it stalls on hills when the machine tips to the left side. I'm guessing the engine starves for gas. Other than that, it was a great investment. Now, if I was going to buy a new aerator, I'd check out a Plugr.

Its not starving for gas, it has a low-oil swith that when on hills the oil leans away form the swith and it shuts off the engine to protect from damage. I have a couple of TA-17 and you can unhook the switch, it is one of the quick connects below the engine ignition switch. I unhooked mine 2 years ago and have not had the dying on hill problem since.

Just got a TA-26 a couple weeks ago. I love the split drive for the larger yards, but it cnbe alittle harder to maneuver on the small lawns. I'd say thumbs up though. It's made a pretty penny since I got it!!
