    I am thinking about buying and aerator to pull behind my ATV. Does anyone have any suggestions? Do they make something that aerates and seeds at the same time?

    The problem, as previously discussed by many, with using a ATV is that it has a tendancy to tear up the turf. Another thing to consider is the size of the properties you'll be using it on. If they are smaller than a acre you'll have a hard time making tight turns. I do believe there is a tow behind aerator/seeder, but not sure who produces it. Try a search on the subject and see what comes up.

    Dunno about the seeder / aerator, but someone mentioned a while back that Polaris was introducing an atv with a "turf-friendly" feature. Haven't seen it so I don't know that this is true, but might be worth checking out (but I'd assume from your subject title that you already have an atv).
