lokking to buy a ryan aerator

've been searching all night trying to find a dealer here in Canada that sells ryan aerators but no luck. Any canadians out there know of any ryan dealers? I'm in the east so the closer the better. Thanks

Call Terry Schuurman. 605-589-3909. He can order you one and have it dropped shipped. I bought a Ryan V, pretty cheap

If you are buying a ryan walk behind you will wish you had bought one of these:


I don't even break a sweat aerating. The only thing that will get you tired is the walking.

Around $2800.00. It is worth the extra because you can run it longer with less fatigue. Picking that Ryan up out of the ground to turn it gets old. Hoss uses a Rocksolid plugger that is also superior to the Ryan units. You may want to compare the two.

Gabriel,

does that machine for 2800 have the same aeration width as the Ryan V or IV? And what about the number of tines per square foot? The same as the Ryan V? And Does it come with a Honda 4 hp? Thanks in advance.

I have used Classen Split Drive, Ryan IV, Ryan 28 and Plugr Pl800.

I own the PL800 because I belive it is the best on the market. Pulls the best cores and is easy to use. I have aerated 80K (10 yards) of turf in one day and played volleyball that night. Try that with the Ryan.
