    Are pull behind aerators worth buying? I mean when some powered units cost about the same price.

    I find that most pull behind units cant reach the depth setting that the stand-alone units can. Also, what would you attach it too? Typically you need to weigh down the tow units with cement blocks or water jugs, I would want to carry those around. The JRCO tow unit runs around $300 and the Toro units are well over $1000. Why not rent the gas unit, and line up all your customers for aeration for 1-2 days?:)

    A pull behind is for large properties where you can make wide turns and need the size and speed. A walk behind is what you need to do small regular lots.
