Cushman GA 60 (GA60)

Hi there, i'm looking at purchasing a used but in good condition tow behind Cushman GA60 aerator. (also made by ryan??)

I'll be using it for condo complexes in open areas. it's built for fairways.. anyone here have any expierience with these machines? it's selling for only $1800 canadian . which is an incredible price if i can use it. the only problems i can come up with is if it's build for fairways, what might happen if i hit a rock or root under the soil.., and also i was considering pulling it with a quad, and it needs hydraulic lines to lift so i'd need a hand pump or something.

please any input would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

Any rocks or roots that you hit will normally result in bent tines which are pretty costly and a real pain in the butt to change. That being said, your fall renovations, should the machine not give you any problems, will be very dramatic. The machine will pull excellent cores and should be fairly quick. good luck
