    Just curious if anyone mounted a spreader to front yet and experiences, ease of removal ect. looking at the jrco vs the turfex ts300. think the turfex is going to get the nod

    I aerated a 3 acre residental that was all hills and a large portion over 40 degree incline. There is no machine that can match the production or ability to aerate in those conditions. Plus is was raining. A beast for sure.

    The nice thing about the riding aerator...is that the lower you set your psi to the tines....the engine has to work a lot less, which saves your gas!!! Every little bit helps.

    Aerating fast on rider (doing more yards), using less hp = savings on gas makes higher profits!!!!

    And bring on the rain!!!!!

    I didn't go back through the whole thread but what are you guys paying for this? I have worked a deal for $7350.00 Mine is supposed to be delivered next Wed. The machine costs $8200.00. It is just across the river in IL so I won't pay sales tax and delivery will be about $150.00. Then the salesman asks if I do any Schools or Church's that are tax exempt . As it turns out I do a church so that allows me an aditional discount...FWIW

    I think mine was right at 8 or under...give or take a few hundred...but I had sales tax included in that price.

    I'm sure you will love it!!! I haven't heard hardly any owners complaining about their machines. And I'm sure you will have a winner too!!!

    Good luck!

    Wow..that's a bargain. With tax mine came to 9200. just in three days this week I've turned out 2300 in aeration jobs and people are still calling. Had a stop yesterday morning where six old men went in together and hired me. They were impressed at the quality of the plugs. They've already referred me to two others

    My ExMark dealer threw me in with someone buying a mower so I got a fleet discount price...so it was $750.00 off. But I do a lot of business with them...so it works both ways.

    Yeah....I've got a ton of customers lined up....but we haven't had much/any rain/until today. So I'm hoping it keeps raining so I can knock them out quickly!!!

    So keep raining!!!!
