    I was almost sold on the Rock Solid Plugr until I saw the Billy Goat aerator at my dealer.
    It seems to be built well, low to the ground, and the rear casters swivel.
    The cost with the 5.5 honda engine is $2345 at my dealer and $2145 at Alamia.
    Whats your opinion?
  2. Works on weight instead of cam doesnt it?

    plugr has a 30" path where as that billygoat only has 19inches. for com use get the wider path. and from what i saw on the web page that billygoat uses weights and a type of star drum or star pattern like the blue birds do. Not real easy to control from what i've seen.

    Go with the plugr. You will not be sorry.

    If you can go to Louiville "Expo" this weekend I'll bet Rock Solid will be there with plugr's to demo. then make up your mind. I would go with the plugr

    Ask 65Hoss about plugr, he's got two of them.
