    ok so this is what i use for aerating. its a little combersome in the corners and i can't get too close to the edges it seems.

    i saw lawn solutions aerator and i really like it but i dont know how you guys justify $4000 for something that gets used 1 maybe 2 months a year.

    i have about $1000 in the jd system(not including the tractor)

    i'm part time and don't have time to market it enought to pay for itself

    Line up all your jobs then go rent one on a Friday and return it on Monday and will only cost you one days rental.

    I would continue to use the one you have. It looks like a pretty good tow behind. The corners shouldn't be that tough, I can back my tow behind into tight areas if I'm careful. I notice yours is a 3 pt, do you have hydraulics to lift it, if so, lift it and back into the areas that are tight.

    Yes its on a 3 point controlled from my seat.

    it gets a little combersome on small yards

    I'm part time in the aerating business and justified spending $8500 on the Lawn Solutions Ride-On. If nothing else, purchase their entry level single hydro walk behind. You won't regret it. I own it too.
