    I was thinking about buying one of the Billy goat Aerator.
    I think the model # is "Patent Pending AE551H," and I just want to know if any body have ever use it, and how do you like it?

    The unit does the job intended but it is very hard to operate. To turn the model we have you have to raise it out of ground and muscle it around. If I was going to build an aeration business I would look elsewhere!!

    A month or two ago I looked at it. I had it down to 3 aerators,
    1) The new Billy Goat,
    2) The split drum Lesco made by Classing
    3) The TurnAer26 by Turfco

    I'm going with the TurnAer26 by Turfco. I read a lot on here and it seemed that the Billy Goat had a problem staying out of the shop and was being redesigned by the user problems encountered.

    The TurnAer26 by Turfco seemed to offer the best I could find without any bad reviews so far. If anyone knows of any problems, please let me know. I'm going to put that question out on its own.

    Thanks, littlenic
