Planning to use it Tuesday. Any advice?
What are you aerating with it?
About 60k sqft of lawn, about half dead.
I have some experience with the Toro procore at a golf course. With the procore hills could be a little hairy. Are you renting it?
Yes...not quite sure how it ended up at as a rental. The ProCore looks similar.
It seems walking backwards is part of the job, is that correct?
Yes, or you can hold the controls behind your back and walk forward. Is there a reason you are not using a spoon aerator like most guys use on lawns?
My inexperience here. I was under the impression all were coring machines, just this was available for not that much more and seems like it would do a much better job of it.
They all pull cores. This is almost exclusively used on golf courses. Spoon aerators pull cores, but just not as many.
This looked like it did a better job. My guess is they got a deal on it, they are renting it for much less then I would expect. Isn't this an $18k machine?
Yeah it is an expensive piece of equipment. You have to be very careful not to run over anything hard such as tree roots that are on the surface.
