    Anyone use the jrco front mount aerator? Was wondering if they do damage to sprinkler heads, and if it is necessary to flag first, how good a job do these things do? Ive got one on order and wonder if they are worth the money----any insite on these would be appreciated

    All aerator will do damage if they hit the springier right on. specially those with the wide plastic covers. We do not flag. Yes we do have to replace a few. but we still think itÂ’s cheaper than to flagging all properties.

    We wouldnt dream of not flagging a property first. Its not the fact that you will fix what ever you destroy/break its the fact that you are gambling with a customers property / sprinkler systems integrity.

    Dear SollyJ,

    We sell quite a few of the JRCO attachments. You can only use the aerator on a Z mower, we have had no complaints at all. You will need to purchase a universal mount bar also. This is specific to your lawnmower, then if you purchase any other JRCO attachments to fit that mower, you will not need another bar. You of course need to be aware of the sprinkler heads, if you have any other questions, feel free to call us at 800-769-3741. Hope this helped. If not, we will gladly put you in touch with the factory. Thanks, Lisa @ Power Equipment Warehouse.
