    Rent the aerator and large blower until you can afford to buy.

    David: You can get a 42&quot; tow behind aerator at Lesco, built by Classen that is built like a tank. I can't see how a person could wear one out in a lifetime. It is has a hitch to pull it behind a rider or it has a 3 point hitch to use on a tractor, which is how I use mine. It is around $1300 and does a great job. There is a picture of one on my website.<p>BTW, Why do you have 2 discussions with the same title and what is &quot;My Mower is my Car&quot; supposed to mean? <br><p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

    I agree with the 8 HP Little Wonder suggestion. It has almost the same productivity that an 11 HP has. I have used both and there is little difference (don't let the dealer tell you since he probably hasn't used both for months at a time). And as for the aerator I second Eric. I have the Lesco (Claussen) aerator and it works great. I pull it behind my Dixie Chopper and had awesome results last year. It was about $1200.

    I was real tired when i wrote the subject and i was basiclly saying if i bought a 11,000 mower it would be worth more than my car.

    I knew what ya meant. When I bought my Grasshopper the payments were within $4 of my truck payments.
