There's a new customer I picked up recently, that I'm doing a renovation for. He's got a tiny front lawn, that's only 1k sq. ft. Since I found out that Home Depot is now renting Turf Revitalizers, I decided to try one out. I found it to be extremely maneuverable and liked everything about the machine except two things. The engine on it was so weak, that it kept stalling when put under even the slightest load. For example; I had the knives set at roughly 1/8", to 1/4" and whenever the machine went over a raised area in the lawn, the engine would stall. It would fall flat on it's face when the knives dug into the crest of the hill. The other thing I didn't like was the incessant rattling the auger in the seed-box made. While the machine looked almost new, there must have been something wrong with it. Had it not been for these 2 things, I'd give it rave reviews.
