    There is 21" Single Hydro, 24" Dual Hydro, 30" Riding...which one?

    I am most interested in the 24 dual hydro which I expect is 3200 to 3500.
    Might consider the single hydro 21 since we do not do a ton of aeration if the price difference is significant.

    The 30 is nice but too big to get into a 36" gate.

    Entry 24" Dual Hydro will be around 4,900

    The 30" machine is the real money maker!

    For who the dealer? J/K

    I am sure it would be on estate lawns and commerical accounts with wide open spaces.

    Most companies who have them are doing 600+ aerations in the fall with just 1 person per machine.

    You need a lot of jobs to keep one buisy.

    My commerical accounts are the middle market type.
    My residentials are a mix of estate, horse farms and decent track homes.

    I suppose I need to find someone with the 21. I can demo

    Could you clarify on what the differences between the 30" Stander version of the Toro and Exmark are?

    I couldn't really tell from the information on the websites. At least nothing really stood out at me. Perhaps I just missed it.

    Did all the former lawn solutions dealers pick up the exmark lines for aerators?

    We finally got some figures from Subaru on the engine and the gas burn the way we are using it is .11 gal per hr. If it is using more than that the engine should have a tech take a look at it. I recently had a honda do the same thing and when we got to looking the float was stuck and it was spewing gas out of the carb and it was a hidden engine so you could not see it when running. Cleaned float valve and all is well. Spoke with Jim and he said your new engine was at the dealer or should be it was sent. Good luck usually the Subaru engine has been a very good engine. Sorry for your problems
