2008 Bluebird H530A Aerator its 19inches wide, honda engine, new tines. the guy is gonna take 900 bucks. i've owned an older bluebird before, an 80's model, the thing was a damn tank. these things seem hard to find used, unless i get one for 1500 on ebay! so thinking about going check it out and possibly picking it up today.. attatched a pic.

I rented one last year for a shoot out with my Lawn Solutions 21 on my own lawn. It failed badly. :hammerhead:

Lawn Soutions won that round.

Plugr 850 smoked them both.

19 is great for small residencials. I have a husquarvarna one, same thing just orange, and it does a pretty decent job. If that's an actual picture it looks in great shape, 900 is a steal. around here they easily go for 1500 - 2000

i bought it, they are hard to come by around here used. i'm sure there are better options. i ran an older model (14inch) for around 2 or 3 seasons and this seems much bigger to me. i got an old snapper with a hitch aerator if i had some big yard to aerate. might be ghetto but it whatever does the job.. :) needing this for smaller residentials. the guy also has a sweet 5x10 trailer with wood floor for 600 bucks which i think is a steal..so may be jumping on that next week as well. i can't find one of those for under 800.

It's a good price but a horrible product. I used to use a brand new Husq that was the wider version and it was a nightmare. No drum, horrible handles that were to high. The little wheel in the front is just ridiculous. I have hills in ATL and the thin machines absolutely do not work.
