    I'm looking for the Widest walk behind aerator I can get. Any suggestions? Need a 36", would be nice at least. Instead of pulling a pull behind.

    They are an advertiser on Lawnsite. Plugr is the correct spelling or google Source One.

    Thanks. They look nice and productive, especially for the money vs a rider. I'm looking at the PL845 Pro VS 30" PLUGRĀ®. It shows almost an acre per hour productivity. Not sure how they get that out of it compared to their other 30" walk behinds.

    Probably has a faster forward speed.

    I'm also looking at the Turfco TurnAer 6. Their spring sale should be under 4k$. Thoughts on that vs the Plugr?

    Have not used the Turfco. It is a 26", I think, and is a drum style unit vs. the cam driven Plugr. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Turfco seems to have a good reputation and owners of Plugr's seem to like them although it seems there are fewer of them out there.

    Locally, Scott's lawn service uses the Turfco units and has for several years.

    One item to consider is distance to a servicing dealer.
