    Must be a company. I see a trailer in one pic and the front caster of a z in another. I see gas can too.

    "effortless to run" HAHA! No aerator is effortless, and the 26" models are man eaters.

    It looks to be in really good shape, Ryans are really good IMO, and probably pull the best plug of any of 'em.

    Yeah, I noticed that. I know they're a pain but the profit is good, and I don't want to have to rent one next year.

    Would you guys say that 900-1200 would be a good price for it?

    find a used plugr. It is as close to effortless as it gets for a walkbehind.

    Looks in good shape .We have a few Ryan LA IV's .Good tough machine, aerates at a pretty high rate of speed, less moving parts, and will last forever and day. BUT it causes the operator much fatigue, after a long day behind the machine, our employees are worn to the bone.
