    I wanted to see if there was some difference from tines for different manufactures. So I ordered from Toro for the 30" ride -on, got some from Turfco, got some from LT Rich for the Z-Plug and Ryan.

    I believe these all take the same tines except for plugr aerator. So I'm guessing they all get the tines from one or two different manufactures of the tines. If any one can see anything different please let me know

    The Stens you are talikng about is the same as the OEM for all the tines I had previously spoken about. Any further info would be appreciated.

    We actually make our own tines here in house. Also the angle in which the tine enters the ground is very important. Our tines here at Turfco have a slight angle to them. Belive it our not there is alot of time that goes into the design of a tine.

    That's almost a tongue twister.
