    I just purchased this from fellow lawnsite member Itsgottobegreen on 10/03/08. I drove down to Maryland from CT to pick it up. It is in great shape, (could use a washing). I tried it out for 30-40 minutes, and decided I didn't like the bulkiness of it. This would be great for large properties. It's just overkill for the properties that I service.

    I am looking to recoup my total cost of purchasing the unit $2250 firm cash or money order only please.

    Total width of the aerator is about 46". I believe I read that the actual aerating width is a little over 41"

    I have very sandy soft soil in parts of my yard, and it was moist the day I used it. It pulled plugs great in the "normal" soil, but I got alot of sand on the aerator in the sandy areas. I should mention that it takes a little getting used to. You have to be moving before engaging tines, and make sure to disengage tines before stopping PTO. This is why on a smaller property it may not be the most pheasable choice. With wide open turf, I'd imagine this would work beautifully...

    i have been looking at these aerators for the past two days, taking in all of the reviews and information. My conclusion is they are great pieces. And if i had the money to spare it would buy this from you. I wish you the best of luck.

    The Perfaerator does a great job, very fast and efficient. It does require VERY frequent greasing though (a few times per day) to keep running smoothly.
