I am wondering if anyone here has experience with ride on aerators if you could tell me pros and cons it would be much appreciates.

I am looking into wether purchasing one would be a good asset to hae.

We do 80-90 aerates in the spring, then slit seed them but the walk behind aerator just kills the operator by hte end of the day, plus they are slow

thanks in advance

Theres a bunch of threads on here about the Exmark/Toro 30" stand on aerator. You might also do a search for LT Rich Z-Plug aerator. A few threads on here about it also.

I am doing the same research right now on aerators and getting one that fits through gates is one of my biggest concerns. Toro is supposed to be coming out with their 24" dual hydro in Sept. This info came from a Toro rep. It supposedly can be used with a sulky too.

Hi Golfpro21,

If you look under "Lawn Maintenance & Renovations" the thread called, "Your Machine is in..." You will find a ton of your questions answered. It talks about the Toro/ExMark Riding Aerator from purchase to everyday use and tips.

I think if you can afford a Toro/ExMark riding aerator.....its a great investment!!! You won't regret it.

Sorry, if I knew who to link the thread.....I would have. Goodluck!!!!
