    I'm getting a compact machine (SK350) from DW and was thinking about adding the aerating attachment as well. Does anyone have any experience with this attachment?

    What type of aerator is it ? I've used the Aeravator several times and it will put holes in th hardest ground.

    it looks like a heavy duty spike aerator with hydro vibrating action. looks pretty serious. I was wondering about lawn damage after running a 3/4 ton machine on it following an aerator. It's the aerator on the ditch witch website.
    thx for your reply.

    Aerators belong on the back of a tractor IMO not a skid-steer,I bet you'll get lots of sod damage using a skidsteer aerator..

    Have you ever seen a sk350? Aren't you one of those mini-skid haters that thinks tractors are soooo much better?

    I think an aerator attachment would be sweet... I really hate getting dragged behind an aerator for 8 hours.

    That aerator on the DW website is an Aeravator and it works great you just have to go back and forth on the turf. Turns are not a good idea.
