Well, since you have one and you got a camera take a pic for us, we would like to see it.

Ant, just got my aerator this weekend. I had a problem with tire spin as well. To cure this I reduced the front tire pressure to almost nothing and put 100 lbs in the hopper. It's not a perfect solution, but it helped. The aerator itself is good, but the tines may need to be changed a little. I thought it was a little expensive at $1750, but it's better than walking behind a Ryan all day!

you payed how much for this ? it looks like something that was built in a junk yard. didn't spend much time developing this thing or was it an 8th grade shop class project. just my thought but i think i will go buy one of those Z-plugers at least it will make a hole in the ground. i saw one the other day that was leaving 3 1/2" plugs but you get what you pay for. and i know that my customers are happy when i leave

Since ant isn't answering, I will. It goes on the back of the PG, you remove the stock sulky and put this aerator sulky in it's place. I think pulling this aerator behind the PG will be hard on the transaxle and probably shorten it's life significantly.

$1800 bucks - for THAT??? Now I'M confused!:rolleyes: What is it, about 20" wide? You could BUILD something like that for under 100 bucks, easily!:confused:

That look liek somethin BHB would have create dback when he had too much time on his hands. I can't beleive they are going to try and amrket that.

#1 -- It's not a core aerator and provides very little benefit to the turf -- may actually cause compaction problems by jammin a lot of the turf down.

#2 - It wouldn't do any more than scratch hard ground. And with all the weight on the spikes and not on the drive axles -- it would act more like an anchor than an aerator.

#3 -- I would imagine that it would add a lot of force on the trans axle and cause premamture failure

#4 - It's not worth near the price mentioned above.

#5 - Are they kiddin'?

You guys sure got a lot of info and opinions from one picture. form that view it's hard to tell anything. The tines look a bit like the spoon tines on the JRCO aerators but again it's hard to tell anything from that picture. From what I can see it doesn't look to be built badly. I do agree that it's going to take a lot of weight on the drive wheels to be able to pull it with someone standing on it. How about someone just put a sulky on a Clausen or turfco split drive with the tines actually pulling the machine?

Now THERE is a thought that I had a long time ago!;) Great idea. I thought about this when I was using the old Lesco aerators that had the tines up front and just sort of "walked" over the turf. These things worked GREAT ant would EASily pull a sulky right along.
