Well, the cd or dvd you got shows what they do, it's the real deal, no crap ads there. Also I got the Edge-R-Rite with all the attachments and it performs well also.

Turfco has a full line of aerators they sell direct. They also have a two week approval time when you get the machines. The one I have and love is the riding aerator, the TurnAer. I am 58 and can run it all day as you spend most of the time riding. They have two sizes for small lawns and large lawns. Fast easy to operate and dependable. Plus tines and parts are direct when you need them.

Our best money makers are the two Ryan "tow-behinds" w/hydraulic lift.
We pull them behind John Deere 445's. WOW are they fast!!! We doubled up on the amount of tines so we pull out twice as many plugs.

Cost for a 48" (36" path) Rran = about $2400.
Cost for a nice used John Deere 445 = about $3500 to $4000, but it sure pays off.

We use these units on big properties as well as small front yards - then we "trim" with small Ryan units.

If you cannot afford this setup, I recommend Turfco's split-drive -- it covers big areas FAST! You can set the RPM's up high and go like a bat out of hell.

But my employees are spoiled>>>they rely as much as possible on the Tow behinds and prefer small Ryan units (small units are light weight & easy to handle) on areas where the John Deere/Ryan tow behind can't get in to.

I have both a TurnAer26 with the Chariot & a Ryan 28 Aerators. I use the TurnAer26 on larger open lawns, it is fast, very fast. It's as fast a a walk behind mowing. I use the Ryan 28 on my smaller lawns or around beds because its much easier to handle in tight places. Both have been very reliable. If I can help answer any other questions, please let me know.

Thanks, littlenic

I have a classen split drive, cant imagine being without the split drive. We have small yards and small gates here, did over 30 one day in the spring and wasnt really that hard on me. Classens are great!
