Getting close to Aeration time again and I need a new aerator. I have run a split drive TA-25 for several years and like it a lot. Looking online for another machine and see Classen TA-26D "split drive" listed on several equipment dealers sites. The price is consistently $400 less than the TA-25D. After talking with two dealers (who's sales don't have any first hand experience) they say they need to get back to me on my questions. I called Classen itself, and the woman I spoke to said none of the TA-26's are split drive units. Again - someone who has never touched an aerator. So - can anyone tell me if a TA-26D is actually a split drive or not? Local guy has an almost new 26 for like $1800, but I'm afraid it would wear me out vs. one that I know has the split system. Any first hand info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
