Closest thing I saw was 2 weeks ago at John Deere Landscapes. It's pretty much a "commercial grade" Garden Weazel. Would come in handy for seeding small spots. They just started carrying it, and it's pricey. But said they already sold some.

Yes. The two pronged step aerator. I have custom modified one and installed Plugrģ brand tines on it. I use it mainly as a diagnostic tool. Works really well. It also impresses clients that I must know a bit more than the average lawn guy. I actually do.

I bought one of those things. Used it twice. Now it hangs under the deck.

What I have started using and like is a Mantis minitiller. It works great along curbs and in spots an aerator misses.

there are manual ones with 2 or 4 tines. It has a handle and you step on it and it pulls the plugs out.
I actually bought this one for taking soil samples for doing soil tests. http://www.lowes.com/pd_56887-37309-...ductId=3143403
it was only $20.
