    do you guys that aerate& dethach use pull behinds. for a bgger yard do still use a 24 or 28 power device. I seen both and I know for a smaller yard that the powered aerator make since but for a bigger yard I've seen 48' that you can stick bricks or water jugs. I didn't know if the pull behinds where for home owners or if the pro use them as well

    Pull behinds come in both homeowner and commercial versions. If you saw it at Lowes or Home Depot, it is a homeowners model....not worth getting. You can get a commercial pull behind similar to what Lowes sells. I believe they are around $600 (if memory serves). I have a Bluebird core aerator that is powered by a Honda engine. It is fine for the majority of my residentials.
