I bought a Lawn air 3 with a blown motor with the intention of fixing it. Now I'm not so sure I want to put the money in it. Is there enough money in aerating to make the investment worth it ,and where can I get a replacement motor for it or have this one fixed? I'm in south west Ohio.

PM me if you want me to look at it and give you my thoughts. I will be over your way Saturday mowing for a friend. I not a professional mechanic but I twist wrenches on my stuff when I need to. If it is only an engine replacement, it is normally pretty easy. Replacement engines are easy to get but IIRC many aerators use a 6:1 reduction drive which ups the cost some.

For aeration I have been renting from Home Depot with the 10 percent damage premium that covers unexpected damage. Seems to be decent money in it, but some of the walk behind machines(that you cant turn without lifting tines out of soil to turn) will work you very hard.
