I went to my local rental shop to get an aerator and the guy says "you mean a jackhammer don't you" I rent from him regularly so he believed me when I told him my customers had been told to water first. The ground here is so dry that he wont rent the slit seeder or aerator until it rains . I saw a guy with a nice ride on aerator working on the yard behind me and I had to sop and watch them. This thing was sweet but I couldn't get his attention to ask what brand it was. looked like $$$$$ it was expensive. I am going to ask the homeowner the name of the company that aerated and see if they will tell me where they got that thing. They were gone before I could load up and get around to them. Wheres my digital camera when I needed it!!
