    This machine actually makes aerating fun and easy!! very good condition and does a great job. I'm selling because I started using a box truck this fall and the incline is too steep to load and unload the aerator safely.
    asking $4200.

    How does the machine do while turning? I'm looking to replace a couple walk behind aerator's but I'm worried about tearing turf while turning, also getting into backyards with rock walkways. Thanks

    It turns great, I usually go in a circular pattern when doing a lawn. if you want to turn really sharp you have to lift the tines. no problem getting thru 36in gates and the tines lift for the walkways.

    I haven't had it on anything too steep (I live in Indiana) but it did good on any hills I used it on. it has an extra set of wheels on the back that you can lower for hills.
