My top 2 picks are:

1 - TURFCO XT5 (it's the one my guys grab everyday)

2 - followed up closely = Ryan

PlugR and Ryan LA 28's are good too, just harder to operate.

I run (2) Plugr 850 Hydros and have a 2010 Lawn Solutions 21".

For those who don't value more plugs in a single pass I'll run my lawn solutions 21.

Simply a higher plug count thus fewer passes needed with the Plugr 850.

Yes this is my video below from a few years back.

The Lesco twin drum aerator. I have the 30" model or whatever it is and it pulls fabulous and plentiful plugs in any soil. Clay, loam or sand.

I would love to test drive a Toro or Exmark ride on though. They are the way to go in my opinion IF....they do pull good and plentiful pluggage.

Plugr 855 Love it and very easy to operate with very little effort by the operator. My new customers are always shocked by how many plugs it pulls.

Are you able to get more $ for your Plugr 855 vs the standard rolling tine unit?

When I showed up and started aerating with a lawn solutions machine...a number of my clients asked where the plugs...? What happened to your yellow machine.

Yes. I am lucky to have more customers than I can handle when it comes to Fall aerations. So I just tell them the price and they can take it or leave it with no drama. I am regularly $10-15 more than the guys with the standard ryan or bluebird.

I actually stopped doing all aerations until I tested the Plugr. My body was just unable to take the abuse of the old rotary models.
