I dont know the breakdown of acres per hour. I do know it's very productive, much easier than a walkbehind, and does a much better job than anything else I have ever used. I used to rent a LT Rich for 2-3 days a year to do all my larger yards and my HOA's and my LS will run circles around a LT.

i use the trimmer trap ST-2 for my stihl br600 blowers. you can use it with open and enclosed trailers. for enclosed, just put a rubber space between the trailer wall and the st-2 and you're good to go. secures it nicely

i have one also. i also have a Classen model ride on aerator for sale on this forum. they both are very similar. last year, i aerated a property that approx 23,000 sq ft of grass in about 35 minutes.

specs on the classen say you can do 50,000 sq ft in an hour, so...

I have used a Classen RideOn and they are nothing like a LS. I have seen you compare them on your thread and I did not want to speak out of place but there is no comparison.
