    Lake, You can find Feldmann's website at http://www.turfvent.com. The only thing is, isthat they don't have much info on their aerator as their site is still under construction. If you call their toll free number though; 1 800 344 0712, they'll be happy to mail you their info on their aerators. I have the 48" I believe and it's a tow behind. I'm going to rig a hitch up so I can tow it behind my Lazer this year. I think it sold for around 400 bucks when I bought it. Good luck with it and let me know what you get! :)

    I used my new Lesco for the first time today( other than a few laps around my own back yard). What a time saver. It has cut my time in half compared with a walk unit, and I am not tired from using it. I was not able to get super close to the edges of some beds because of the curves, but i pass around the edges with the walk unit took care of that.

    I can't even imagine going back to only using a walk unit. It made areating a fun job that I enjoy rather than one I did not look foreward to.

    I agree, it sure is a time saver. I did one today too and didn't even break a sweat. The hardest thing I have to do with my set up is turn that darn old steering wheel on the JD, sure glad it has power steering. :D

    Jaclawn,
    You said that you weren't able to get up close to your beds with your pull behind- I saw something in Home Depot the other day that's the ticket for that. It's a T handled two post deal that has a crossbar to step on, and two open ended hollow tubes at the bottom. Basically, a manual aerator. Perfect for "trimming" those tight spots on the aeration jobs. I made my own a few years ago, but the price is right on this one!
