    Here is the situation I have a small lawnservice biz on the side for approx. 3 years. Tired of renting aerators that beat you down. I do mostly yards under 10000 sq/ft. I also have a small horse farm 10+ acres that need aerating I was thinging of going with the insustrial pull behind type for the farm although I used the drum style and that wasn't very effective. Are other pull behinds any better?

    For the biz what would be a good one to get?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    For your smaller properties, I would steer clear of a pull behind. Ryan, Lesco, Bluebird and turfco are good brands to look at. I have rented a ryan twice and it was a great unit to use. JMO

    For your horsefarm, what is the smallest tractor you have with a 3 point hitch? That sounds like it would be the ultimate answer for you. If you happen to have a smaller compact or midsize tractor, that would be the ticket.
