    Hi. I was wondering if anyone here has used the Mantis Aerator attachment for aerating work. If so, my question is: How does it work best, pulling it forward or backwards? Also, After the process, should I put any fertilizer down and what should I do about the mess it leaves when complete?

    I have a Mantis....and I would never think of using it for aeration. I just don't think it would be effective. Also it is so small that time-wise it does not make sense for commerical use.
