I can tell you what not to get - We got a couple of Bluebird 530's - they leave you (er - by you I mean employees) dead beat tired at the end of the day.

As everyone else has suggested - look into the Plugr Hydro - for a wb aerator - I dont think it can be beat.

pull behind plugr

They now make a new pl1600 which aerates 45" inches wide. Looks like a great machine. I have a pl800 the second best aerator ever used, Ga30 would be the best, but to costly for lawn care work.

I just watched the video on Plugr's website. It looks like a great machine. How is it able to spin right around without tearing up the turf?

here's a pic of the 42" core aerator that goes on one of my 230 Steiners. Does a great job and when you need to turn, simply raise and no tearing of turf.............Lynn
