    I saw a guy using a pto driven on behind a large compact tractor the other day, it appeared to be in the 48-60" range. He made some good time with in the larger sections of the lawn, he also had a guy with lesco renovator doing the small areas. I didn't catch a name on it unfortunately, it was not what you linked though.

    Thanks for the reply! I have been unable to decide what to get, the woods looks good! But I have time.

    Thanks Bob

    I use a 6' core aerator and a walk behind spreader. That woods machine looks great. I think that a core aerator would penetrate a little deeper but I'm not sure if it would be better or not. The overseeder rollers can be tilted causing it to really 'tear' the ground making a good seed bed. If I had it to do over again, I would probably get the woods. JMO.

    That woods machine is the way to go. From what i have seen their equipment is built like battleships. I own a woods pl 60 aerator ( 3 pt.) it will last forever, built high, high quality! If you go for the reno. post her'e, i would like to know what that machine cost. Scott

    What does one of the those woods seeders run? I looked into a pulverizer they ran about $1100 for a 5', is that resonable, and do they make for a good seed bed on a new lawn?
     
  9. when installing a lawn, I use the pulverizor to prep, apply fert and seed, use aera-vator to reduce compaction and make great seed to soil contact, and then apply cellusose and wood fiber muclh
