    Has anyone purchased one of these machines or seen a demo? They look to be productive and seems like a great idea. Trying to find the best aerator for larger properties (1+Acre). Tractor w/ 3pt. hitch aerator can be costly. Walkbehinds are too small. Any input would be appreciated.

    Never tried one, I use classon and feldman turf vent pull type and 1 WB to get where they can't.

    dantelawn, we make the GATOR RATOR for mid mount ztr riders. It mounts to the front of the mower & applies down pressure. We have 2 sizes 31.5" aeration swath and 54" swath for about the same money as a walk behind.

    Check out z-spray.com. It's unbelievably productive. We own a 46" version.

  9. Over $6k they also added a spreader option to it...

    The groundbreakers one bryant makes looks to be a great one. I would suggest it over spending $6k on a thing that sit's 9-10 months out of the year.

    I think I might be getting one of his out this Fall.
