Thanks & for everyone else: I called & they recommended Locktite on the set-screws after centering shaft.

I have a recall that I got last winter for the ExMark 30" riding aerator. I thought it was something to do with the shaft? I need to take it in....once Spring is over and Summer is here. Besides....the ExMark is running great....so I can't afford to have a few days down in Spring.....Summer....well that's a different story!!!!

Then get ready for Fall Core Aeration!!!!

Would anyone else like to have the plugs split or fragment as it drops? If they were 100% soil and no root matter then we could probably just attach an arrowhead opposite the spoon opening & as it dropped it might break up well. Thoughts besides raking? Last week I put the hitch of a 50" Agri-fab lawn sweeper around my Exmark 30"'s standing platform & dropped a screwdriver thru to hold. As long as I was going fast enough it seemed to break up the zoysia plugs pretty well. I'd rather have a 12volt spinning brush tucked up & underneath the platform instead 'cause there's no backing up that dumb sweeper. Thoughts?

Adam, why not use a drag mat? This way you will break up the plugs and when the mat gets muddy....it would be easy to clean. I think a drag mat would work very well with your aerator.

Here's a nice one at Amazon.com. The have different sizes...but I think a 3 ft wide by 5 ft long would work amazing!!! And it's only $125.39 with free shipping.
