    I just rented an old bannerman aerater to do my lawn and about 10 tomorrow morning. I gotta say, I'm not lookin forward to tomorrows work. That thing just kicked the sh!t outta me doing my own yard!!! I only went with the bannerman because I don't have a trailer and the ryans and bluebirds are too heavy imo to roll up my ramp into my truck. Definitely thinking about getting a small trailer or something that goes into my hitch for next year.

    I've only used the bluebirds and the billy goat that uses water as weight. They whooped my a$$ bad! I'm a big guy and no stranger to hard work but they got me.
