I own the Lawn Solutions version of it. A good little machine. Hydro has changed aeration.

How would it compare to the turfco xt5 aerator. One thing I like about the new exmark is that it has a kawasaki engine.

I have never seen the Turfco live. I would say they are similar in function and performance. I would compare the engines, price and whatever incentives may be available and make your choice. I have owned mine for a few years now and it has been very productive and proven dependable (Briggs engine). I am partial to the Exmark. Others here probably to Turfco. There are owners of both here. Maybe more will chime in.

I run the XT5 and I like it. Being able to back up and turn with the tines in the ground is a plus. However the machine is still work, you will still work up a lather. I would say effort is 25% less than a Ryan type old fashioned aerator. You also pick up some efficiency with a hydro unit as well.

I just picked up my Exmark 21" (S-Series)...love it so far. Turning and reversing with tines engaged works great and makes for way less work than others I have operated. The biggest advantage though is the transport capability. With the self propelled front tires I can run this up ramps into the back of my truck (by myself) if I don't feel like hauling a trailer. It's top speed seems a bit slow with the tines engaged, but the ability to turn and reverse easily makes up for it, making it faster than any other aerator I have used.
