    I paid $300 for it. Got it from the Bargain news. Do you guys think this was a good deal? I've been looking for an aerator for quite some time now and since i got a Lazer Z I decided to go with a less expensive pull behind to start with. In my area there are a lot of big open yards. It came with 5, 5gallon Kerosene jugs for water (weight).

    Well is was real dirty so while washing my TTHP I washed this unit also. I couldn't believe how clean it came out. Under all the dirt there was nice glossy paint. The tines are in mint condition. Doesn't look like this was used very much which is what the owner said. He had to weld the arm back on cause he said some how the weld cracked. He did a real good job. i can't wait till fall now....

    It's going to pay for itself in one day if you can get enough jobs lined up. You got a good deal.
