    It really is a nice set up. We ran it up and down some hills, and over several different types of ground. It definately pulled great plugs. The hills were challenging...sideways steep would not work but straight up and down seemed to do a good job. On level ground it just flew (as much as a Walker can fly). The unit seems to be very well built.

    You can do a little turning as you aerate. It would be easy to go around contoured islands, otherwise you generally shut the pto to make the 180 turn.

    The cost is right around $3400.00. Mine should be in by mid February. Thank God...A good machine that won't kill my back and arms. Even though it is larger than a walk behind, I'll bet I use it on almost all my lawns, big and small.

    p.s. I'd post a pic but I don't know how.... I'll bet you one gets added pretty quick though:)

    It's pricey, but I did pay $2800.00 for my 26" Classen, if this thing does what 41" wide, and you can sit while you work. I may have to get one next year.

    I did just buy my 26HP EFI Walker W/ a 48" GHS deck yersterday, I got it with a light kit and I mowed till well after dark :D . Boys with their new toys :blob3:

    I really love that machine, what a finished cut.

    It that cam or drum aerator? Nice setup anyhow. I wouldn't mind aerating all day with that. You should make lots of money with it. Good luck.

    Tahnks for the pictures guys! It is cam driven and runs off the pto. I think it will really change the face of aerating around here. There must have been 15/20 lawn outfits at the demo. Not sure how many bought but I know I was first! (hopefully the rest decided it wasn't worth it:)

    Its a joint effort from Walker and Rocksolid Plugr. Its the cam assemblies just like the ones on my PL600's. Based on that fact, the only aerator that would possibly be better is an aeravator.

    I wonder if it will plug into the walker by Walker? If not, what do you guys think of a smaller unit that would plug into it?

    Just make sure you guys are considering using it on the model T's. This aerator is some what of a HP hog. The 20 -26 are fine. I do not think is going to be a unit for a 16 hp though. As these attachments keep improving and getting larger they are becoming more commercially targeted. Just food for thought
