    I'm renting a Ryan tow behind aerator tomorrow. I've never used one before. Do you guys have any suggestions for doing corners and such? Any suggestion of problems to look out for? I don't know what model the areator is, I asked the guy when I called and he just said it weighs about 500lbs. I'm useing it with my 20hp Dixie Chopper.

    Take it out to a field or a park somewhere and test it. You don't want to learn that turns pull up more than plugs on a customers lawn.

    If the park isn't a good idea, try your own lawn.
    I just did the same thing with the new Classen.
