    I have a Lawn Solutions Ride On and Walk Behind. They are great. I've used Ryan, Bluebird, and Billy Goat. The LS aerators (even the walk behind) put the others to shame.

    I don't know why every one complains that the classens are heavy, the split drive make it a nice feature my vote gose for the classen ta25.

    its because they are heavy... a ta25 weighs 370 where the equivalent size Ryan is 200.... added weights 244 and 280 with weights and water in drum... Not knocking classen, but they are definately heavy and if you're gonna be humpin' it around all day, I'd go with the lighter one... jmo

    ok so there is a small difference but when it comes to it i rather be able to turn with the tines down then at the end of each row have to stop pick up the tines and turn then reset the tines. so for weight the ta 25 at 370 or the ryan at 330 i would go for the classen any day.
