    Okay guys, here is an update. First off, I got a striping kit for the Turf Tiger. But the big deal is that I got an aerator. It is made by Ringer and called the Gorilla. Here are some pics. Thanks - Mike

    Neat aerator do you get a lot of requests to do aeration's ?

    I don't get a huge amount of requests. I mostly wanted it for my own yard. - Mike

    The last picture the stripes look pretty straight, but some of the others don't look entirely symmetrical. It could be rough ground I don't really know, but focus on that!

    This was my first time cutting grass with the Turf Tiger, I'm still getting used to the controls. - Mike

    Yeah, like with everything else it just takes a little time and you'll have it down.

    So I went out and bought myself some parts for a trailer lift assist. I got the idea of the forum from another member. This setup works real well. I only used a 130 lb. spring, I probably could have went bigger and I still might. But it really does help and make it easier to lift. The pictures are a little dark, so I will get some more when I have the trailer out tomorrow. - Mike
