    Any Walker owners have their new aerator ? After aerating about fourty lawn this past week with my 25" Husky/Buebird my hands are not moving very well on this keyboard today. Sitting while aerating sounds good to this guy. Feed back : price, how easy is it to put, maintance, etc. thankx

    I own a walker, not the aerator. Saw it mentioned was around $2,300.

    I would think it a worthy attachment for larger areas, and would imagine the manueverability is the same as the rake attachment, that we have and use.

    We operate 2 Ryan's being that the bulk of the work is smaller.

    GLAN, its $3600. Only bad thing with it is every time you want to engage the tines, you must start the pto. That will get very tiresome on the clutch i would imagine.

    Does not sound like anyone who has read the thread has one ! So maybe I can get a deal because there must be a few around somewhere. Mac, Clutch ? What clutch, slow rpm, pull lever which tighten very large (nice) Belt which engages: blades, blower, "plugger" etc. Can not imagine that it would be any different that the thousand other times that I probably have to engage the pto to engage my bade system during my cutting season. What to do think? Is there some more that normal belt wear that I should be looking at maintance wise. thanks!

    FB, a dealer in middle OH quoted me $3400 + tax. Above all, im not sure, but it seemed to me that to engage the times, the engine PTO must be engaged as well. Think about how many times on one property you would have to engage/disengage the tines while aerating. Please dont misunderstand me, i love the idea of this machine.
