    Does anyone have any experience with the Toro Hydrojet aerator. Im looking to add aerating to the services we provide but I don't anve any experience with them. I hear that the core aerators sometimes go through cable and phone lines. I like the idea of the hydrojet because it should elliminate this problem.

    Sounds crazy, Ive only heard of golf courses using Hydro for aeration. Although it would be great not to have to flag heads. Tell me everything about this Toro Hydrojet.

    I worked for a school and the guys at Deere dealer brought one out for the sports fields. No marking heads, louder than all can get out and very slow. Also was too expensive so we stuck with the PTO cam drives. Can't comment on Toro though but I imagine it's about the same.
