Just wanted to thank all who have recommended the "30 inch stand-on aerator" in the past (you know who you are). I was a skeptic >> especially regarding the Lawn Solutions unit. Exmark initially repainted LS units red, but pulled them off the market until they corrected problems, fine tuned them, and got the bugs out. I now have one 2013 Exmark 30" stand-on, and I wish I had two of them. My wife didn't want me to spend the money at first, but she's a believer now. Much better plugs. Less damage to turf. I want all of my aeration customers to have the Exmark aerator to do as much as the aeration as possible due to quality results. I even carry socket wrenches to undo fences when gates are smaller than 48 inches, just so I can pull deep/quality plugs. James (Equity Green) from Sioux Falls said, "It's worth every penny". I agree. Thanks again guys. p.s. I still bleed TURFCO green.
