    Couple pics of my recently acquired Bluebird aerator Model #H530A. Bought it off a friend for $800. I feel like it was a good deal. Whatcha think?

    Sounds like a good deal to me. Eat your wheaties if this thing handles like the claussen (sp?) I ran, it will kick your ass. But you can make good money with it. congrats it is always nice to add some new equipment.

    I have ran this particular aerator in the past. I find it fairly easy to use, just gotta be careful turning.

    True enough (as the owner of a couple Bluebird 530's I took the liberty of editing this post).

    I was wondering about the weghts. I'll try it without them and see how it does.

    Sweet machine grits! Now all you have to do is paint the machine red to match the cape and put stripes on the wheels to match your socks!

    Show us a pic from the back, looking at the tines. I want to see if it plugs up like mine does... It may be better since it is the 530 though.

    I have used the same machine, especially when getting ready to reseed a lawn. I need to find one, because I am so tired of renting when I need it. It runs $65 bucks a day. It is something that I don't use all the time but great to have when you need it. I probably could have bought one by now instead of paying that daily rent.
