    Would like to know has anyone used the lesco lawn renovator 20 ? I may be buying one this fall.
  2. Got one, does a good job but the Ryan Mataway is better all around.

    True, if your doing golf courses the Ryan is great. But the Lesco renovator is easier to get around landscaping beds and it's quicker for residential jobs. But both of the machines pull up so much thatch you should be prepared and have your pick up truck empty when you arrive at the job. From experience:)
  4. I beg to differ. The Lesco is slow and harder to manuver than the Ryan is, that's why I reccommened the Ryan over the Lesco.

    The Ryan is (looks) taller but it is not that much if it is, and is more user freindly.

    Also if I was to shell out $3500 for one, the Ryan comes out ahead, because they have other reels you can change to, to do other things. The Lesco does not.

    BTW The Mrs. can use either one.

    Another good one is the Jacobson, and Classen drillseeder.

    I think they all go for around $3500 or so.
