I'll be out aerating this weekend!!! We are getting rain right now, and had some rain on Wed (heavy rain) and again some this morning (Fri)...so I've got a ton of work to knock out this weekend!!!

Yeah, the riding aerator will slow down a bit if you have: Soft Yard, climbing a good size hill, or doing both at the same time. Otherwise....it runs great and I've never had my machine bogged down where it wanted to stop running....it slows down some...and then once it levels out....it's back up to speed like normal.

If you do end up buying a sprayer or spreader for your zero turn riding aerator....let me know which one you end up buying.

It's almost set up perfect for an attachment from a different company....if Toro/ExMark don't end up making one (sprayer or spreader).

Any issue with the cores sticking to the tires of the stand on and making a mess through the lawn and across any drives, walks, and streets? Even if the dirt itself won't stick, the dew on the grass would make the tires wet and in turn cause the dirt to stick to the tires I would think. Any input from stand-on users? The walk behind units would do the same, but the tires are much narrower so less noticeable tracks.

One out of 5 calls for my $69 aeration up-to 1/4 acre ad ask if he & 2 neighbors can get a better deal since they are small & close together. There are so many sarcastic replies id love to use but don't. Generally they call again shortly thereafter to go ahead & schedule anyway. But just curious, how would you all reply? They get hung up on the (up-to 10,820 sq.ft.) part. "One Per Household" may need to be added.

Yeah I know what you mean Adam.N. The customer is always trying to find any angle they can get to save a little bit of money.

Off the subject a bit, looking at a dump trailer from Beck's in MI...haven't got a price yet, but looking to see if the can extend the dump frame so I can mount an Ecolawn Spreader on the A-frame of the dump trailer. Figured I can buy the dump trailer now and next Spring get the Ecolawn Spreader. But here's my question: How did you get your shelf/plywood attached to your dump trailer? Is it bolted down somehow? I like your set up and figured you're the guy to ask!!! Thanks!

I just revised this an hour ago. Went from a narrow piece of angle iron to a wider one full of holes(metal section near the rope at Lowes for $11 each). Not real thick but its merely keeping the sheet in place & the 2x6 knee-brace is holding the weight. Will upload a pic by nights end.
