    Below is one of our new walk-behind turf aerator.

    Key Features:
    1. Hydrostatic Drive w/ variable speed forward and reverse. They are very easy to operate and drives like our seeders w/ a top speed of 4 mph.
    2. Turning is done with tines in the ground. No need to wrestle with the machine by lifting the tines to turn. You can easily make a quick zero turn which not only making it much easier to use than traditional aerators, but much quicker as well.
    3. Hydraulics delivery smooth handling while eliminating maintenance with belt clutching style aerators.
    4. Weight: 210 emply & 330 w/ weights. 3 weights on back and 1 on the front give the machine unmatch plug pulling.
    5. 21" Aerating width and 30.5" total width.
    6. 6 Tines per disk on 3.5" spacing
    7. Golf course tyle tines not only pull deeper and longer plugs, they self clean and attached with a single bolt.
    8. Fold down handles for easy and compact transporting.
    9. Engine Options: 6HP Briggs new commercial w/ auto choke or 6HP Honda

    We are going to offer 6-month free financing (no payments, no interest) and have an introductory price of just $3,250 for Lawn Site members.

    No, this one is designed to be a walk-behind only.

    We are currently testing another larger 24" design that is a cross between this unit and our ZTR ride-one aerator. This 24" model also has a hydro-drive, power steering, powered rear wheels, and has the same hydraulic liftting tines that act like a suspension system, floats hydraulically to follow the ground, and allows the operator to control the depth of the plug on the fly. This unit is going to sell for around $4,000.

    Our 24" unit is designed to work with our ride-on platform that is used with our seeders.

    That looks really cool. Do you have more pics? Does it cost more for the Honda?

    Price is the same for the Hond or the Briggs. The Briggs is a new professional grade engine they are introducing this year. They sent us a prototype to test and to say the least I have been impressed. It starts first pull using the auto choke even at temps as low as 5-10 and is very quiet.

    We have some videos that we will post Monday or Tuesday as well as additional pictures. We just got back in town today from being in Florida last week at a show as well as getting some good testing in on our new aerators.
