Anyone used a Lesco LA1900 aerator, or the equivalent Classen?

    I've only rented Ryan's and Bluebird's until this year. My new Plugr I pick up on Monday.:) So here's my opinion on what I've learned, for what it's worth.

    Is the Lesco a split-drive? If so, and it's in good condition, that sounds like a pretty good deal. If not and you aerate quite a few properties, I would imagine you'll get tired of it pretty quick. Just my .02.

    I'm sure others with experience with this model will chime in. Good Luck

    It's not the split drive - unfortunately. I usually do the "racetrack" pattern when aerating as to minimize turns. I was hoping to save money (for the time being) by getting a non split drive unit.

    For that price, hey, it's not much more than a rental for a week. Go for it.
