    I have a Turfco and Husqvarna aerator, one tow behind BRAND NEW 48" Husqvarna Aerator and a Classen Slit Seeder with seeder box.

    Turfco -- $900
    Husqvarna Walk Behind -- $1,000
    Husqvarna Pull Behind -- $1,400
    Classen Slit Seeder -- $1,150

    BUY IT ALL FOR $4,000! YOU WILL SAVE $$$$$

    This is perfect for creating a new lawn solutions business. I have gotten out of this field and gone to strictly mowing.

    I have this very same unit...works great and pretty easy (light enough) to throw around...I'd say get it.

    Its all good, I appreciate your input I could see how it could beat me up, I have ran an old mid tine tiller for 4 hours one day and that thing bounces like you wouldnt believe, I could see how that aerator could do the same in this instance so I just passed on that one :walking:

    Boy that lesco is aged, I wouldn't touch I'll bet it is a bearcat to run.
    You can get a better Lawnaire used for $1K-$2K range.
