    Looks like a decent way to destroy the drive motors on my Z and tear the crap out of lawns.

    i agree with the others.if your gonna aerate,you need an aerator,not an trying to aerate with those things you put on your shoes.

    Sounds good, but whats the point of aerating if you're not core aerating? Bet they'd be good in the winter though...

    Watching that brings back flashes of "Mad Max" into my head.

    Interesting product for the home owners, till you have to go across the side walk or driveway.

    I dont know the price but I cant imagine them being that much cheaper then just getting one of those cheaper home owner aerators designed to be pulled behind a home owner mower.

    I thought the purpose of aerating was to loosen the soil which stimulates root growth. That's what those plugs of dirt are from.

    I'm surprised HGTV did this.

    It's the DIY network not HGTV.Most diy shows are homeowner based and usually give bad information.

    After viewing the clip at the above link; I looked at the related clips on the right. The 3rd one down says HGTV. (unless i can't read or lost my mind in the last few days.)
