GIE Expo - Lawn Solutions Dual Hydro Aerator

Was anyone able to demo the new Lawn Solutions dual hyrdo walk behind aerator? If so, what are your feelings? Or did anyone get any video of the plug pattern/plug quality? Looking at purchasing one next year and would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

They are a bit pricey, but one could make a lot of money with one and not feel like they've been wrestling with a wild bull all day.

I believe $8500 is for the rider. The walk behind is around $4k I believe.

The dual hydro walk behind is like $4300. I saw it at GIE with a sulky and it looked pretty easy to run. You couldn't really see the plugs because it just running through the dirt.

I did run the single hydro walkbehind and it was much easier to run than my Ryan aerator I have now. It is like $3250.

I tried one out and was very impressed. I also tried the smaller hydro machine and it was nice too, just not as fast. I did not try out the riding machine, I did watch a few others run it and determined it wasn't for me.

Here's the thing...

How much wild bull would you be willing to wrestle if I gave you $7,500 cash?
That's what I thought.

Because used wild bulls sell for a thousand, how much I paid for my chain-and-belt solid axle Wb aerator 9 years ago.
And it works me, but apparently even 9 years later I get paid to wrestle, per lawn.

If that's your business plan, then that's great and more power to you. However, I'm not as young as I used to be so I prefer to work smarter rather than harder. I could pay for the walk behind ($4300, not $7500) in a short amount of time. I would then be able to make even more money since I can do more yards because I'm not worn out at the end of the day.

because you can get a 200 push mower instead of a 9000 ztr

Thats what I thought you bought the ztr to be quicker and not as worn out from pushing all those yards
