Exmark 30 inch aerator reviews?

Does anyone own one of these? Went to an open house today and looked at one and they seem like a pretty slick setup. Anyone have any thoughts on them? We do aeration but we aren't huge into it but im thinking it might be something to look into to expand a little bit! Anything would be greatly appreciated!

Bought one last fall and absolutely love it.

Search this site, particularly in the Lawn Maintenance and Renovation section. (Lawn Solutions/Exmark/Toro riding aerator)

WOW!
That thing made me rethink aeration.
I too went to an open house and tried it.
It was sitting there in a lineup of standers and I didn't even notice it until I focused on it for a couple of minutes.
It was the best piece of equipment on display in my opinion.
Now, one man (old/out of shape) can do the work of AT LEAST 2 PEOPLE!
I can't say enough about this machine.
Now, how it holds up will depend on other guys to post.

We have one. Yes it is awesome. Yes it will boost your productivity.

Aeration is big money, profit is even higher with this machine due to the speed.

Only negative? Spend some time with it on some junk ground, as you can tear things up easily with it if you are not careful. It's a true zero turn machine and it's very easy to rip up turf if you turn too much with the tines in the ground.
