    Has anyone tried either of these?

    “Spiker” Lawn Aerator. www.7315.com

    Or the “Edgit” trimmer guide www.edgit.com

    Any feedback would be wonderful.

    :blob4: I had two Edgit's, wore both out. I liked'em, they are well made, I just wore'em out. I don't have one now. It took awhile but I taught myself to edge with just the trimmer. Oh yes, It does get heavy.

    A spiker can do harm / while doing good. Not sure about your soil type, but up here we've got clay and one of our concerns is soil compactiion. the spiker is not helping that situation at all, also an aerator helps rejuvenate the turf by allowing for more root expansion from existing turf, really no helping there either.

    I'd go w/ the true core aerator, much more benifits and your customers will see the cores laying there , knowing you did the job.

    MacLawn,
    That's absolutely disgusting. Yes fat people do need loving but not from me. That's a fact.

    I use the edgit and really like it. Well worth the investment. It does take some getting used to like anything else.

    Hi Craig,

    Here is a quote from this post.

    For those who use Stick edgers.

    "I have an Edgit and like it alot for edging beds, but I don't think it does as good as a stick edger on concrete. The Edgit does do a very nice job on concrete, but I feel the steel blade does it better. Just MHO.'

    hortboy, yes you are correct that a spiker can compact the soil.:)
    I should have been More clear in my post, I was looking at the pull behind core aerator version. Your response was helpful. Anyone else have any info on this aerator or other pull behinds.

    Team Gopher, Ducky1, mike9497, sprout and lawnkid, thanks for the feedback on the edgit.
    When you guys used your edgits, was it easy to trim around trees and obstacles with the edgit mounted on your trimmer? Sprout, Overall I am concluding that you felt it was a well made device, is that correct?
    Craig:)
