Ok fair enough....but plug pattern is identical on the LS stander and 21 WB. For some time I was under the impression for some.time.the stander and WB had a.3.5" x 6" pattern. Even David confirmed that. I even had.one phase of marketing claiming the densest plug pattern of any rolling tine unit on the market. Then one day I measured the tines fore an aft and got the shock of my life. I even posted pics of the holes with a.tape.measure last spring. 3.5 x 9" making it less dense of a pattern of many other rolling tine units. The dually unit has even wider spacing.

Are they pretty good about letting people demo them?

Ok confirm it then. Are not the tines spaced 3.5" x 9"....? Last spring David offered to work up a more dense assembly for.me. He said not talk it up but did recently test a more dense pattern but concluded too many tines.

David has confirmed multiple times they are the same spacing.

yes, Shane was willing to meet me Saturday of July 4th weekend to let me demo it at the factory. When I realized what weekend it was, I wouldnt let him come in. I cant speak more highly of the entire team and their dedication to the clients!

I spoke with a Toro dealer again Tuesday and he told me from everything he is hearing they will not have any Rideon aerators available this year. I really hope he's wrong. I have emailed LS several times and no real answers.

I think i was the first member here @ lawn site to purchase a lawn solutions machine (early 2008). I kinda feel like we have been screwed by david cook, no straight answers from toro? Will i even be able to get parts for my aerator from toro?
