    Check out the above video link for our new hydro walk-behind aerator video.

    The video demonstrates how highly mobile and easy to use this aerator is to operate. The top speed is 4mph, but most of the video was done at 2-3 mph to demonstrate handling.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Unit is powered using closed loop hydraulics which give the unit precise control with variable speeds (forward and backward).

    Pricing - $3,250 through our dealers

    I'm sure it can, but we haven't tried it yet.

    I demoed this machine the other day and it is awesome! Very easy to handle and great plugs. David has done it again!

    I watched the video, looks like it handles great, almost like a mower. You need to add a close up of the plugs. It's hard to tell if its doing anything.

    We will next week once the weather clears up. We just finally had our snow melt to where we can do more testing and videos.

    Does it pull plugs...oh yes it does. It has over 120lbs of optional weights which makes it the heaviest walk-behind aerator in its class. By watching the video, it is obvious all the weight is over the tines where it should be.

    It also looks light in the video because it is so easy to run, but lift the machine out of the ground even with the mechanical advantage of the lift system and you quickly realize this is like no aerator you have ever used.

    Been pondering your machines. Can you post a close up picture of the tines and tine assembly?

    We have some really rocky patches of turf in this area that on several occasion cause my Plugr to jump and leap fairly violently. One Lawn I did was literally like aerating concrete with 1/2 inch of turf on it :cry:

    The Plugr tines hold up very well to this abuse.

    So do your machines have spoons? :waving:
