    stay away from there sod cutters. We have had nothing but problems. Also the local Toro Golf distributor stopped selling them b/c of to many warrenty claims. Blades breaking, frames cracking and such. The rest of the stuff is pretty good.
  4. I've seen their equipment at shows and its seems to be well built. My only concern with them is no local parts supplier.
    The new 26" aerator that turns with brakes was interesting. If you want to do a search, I think there was a thread about a month ago.

    Sounds good to be able to turn and not pick up!

    I just picked up one of their sod cutters at an auction yesterday for $8.00. Are they really that troublesome? mine looks pretty good, it's dirty but no cracks in the frame, everything works. Where can i get parts? thanks

    Hope it works out, wont need much use to earn back its cost.

    Thanks for the contact info. I do have it and requested more info from them. They even have marketing items to help get the work. I like that.

    Thanks Bob, I will be checking out the website. I figured for $8 bucks I couldn't go wrong. I usually end up renting a few times a year anyway. Maybe I'll save a bit on rental fees :D
