Not much talk about aerators, can anyone recommend a good one?

I've been out of this game for a little over a year now. Mostly did dethatching but I did have an old drum aerator I used once in awhile but it ended up with too many problems to use. I'm thinking of firing things back up this spring as my job is a total joke with seriously low pay and no benifits. I wouldn't mind getting an aerator but I don't want to kill myself using one. I'd like one thats somewhat fast and easy to use. I can't seem to find the website on Lawn solutions but that duel hydro seems like a great concept. I'm also not looking to spend many many thousands of dollars either so that one might not work.:confused:

Depends on the property size. I have a classen TA19 and a billygoat towbehind that does an awesome job. It works great for me with my size property and current available help

So the newer ones are no good? Did lawn solutions go out of business or something? I haven't found any reviews or info on their dual hydro that supposedly came out in May.

I run the Turfco XT5 and though not effortless to use, is a fair bit easier than a standard Ryan type to run. $3,500 will get you one.

I bought a Turfco turnare6 last fall, what a machine! The turning ability is do nice to have. Its still a lot of work, but I'm covering more ground per hour, probably double over the old ryan. The XT-5 I'd love to try, but I bet if I did I'd wish I had bought one of those instead...

I own the Lawn Solutions Ride On aerator, dual hydro, and single hydro. The ride on and dual hydro can both fit on my 5x10 trailer. I have a side load gate that allows access to the dual hydro without removing the ride on (if I don't need the ride on; gated back yard less than 48" wide)

I am very pleased with my LS equipment. If I didn't own LS equipment, I would consider getting out of the aeration business.
