    What did you pay for yours? It looks like they are selling for half price. How do you like it? My only concern would be it tearing the turf on turns. I wouldn't want to have to get off and lift the tines up on every pass. Anyone else with any feed back, please chime in.

    I finally got the 3 pt setup on my old Deere 400. Now I just have to find the right pins to put on my aerator to fit the cat 0 lift arms. It currently has cat 1 hardware. Has yours worked as expected? Made any changes?

    Well there's a reason why Walk-behinds cost as much and why there's work involved with those,
    unlike that cheap POS one can tow around behind a mower which doesn't do nearly as good of a job,
    the only shame is how much they actually do cost but I guess that only makes them overpriced POS's.

    Here's an example of a plug pulled with a walk-behind:
