    The best thing you can buy. Stinger is the Cadillac and comes with the price. Next is Zplugger from Zspray. Then XT8. TORO/EXMARK also makes them. You will thank yourself by buying one.

    Stinger will be showing the 30” version of the Quad-Aer at GIE next month. They will be available for spring. It will be the most compact, quickest, most productive 30” aerator on the market. It will also feature commercial grade engines and NO CHAINS

    You should be able to pick them up at dealers in the spring for around $10,500

    Thank you. Is aerating profitable in your area? Is it a good addition to your current business? Many thanks

    If you have large enough customer base then yes it can. You can price it for aeration only. Aeration with spot seed. Also aeration with overseed. There are some good videos on YouTube on how to price aerations. GL.

    I sent a message through your website but got no response. I’m curious, I watched the video of the aerator and the front bounces off the ground. I’m a big guy and wonder if that would have an even greater effect on the front bouncing. Is there a way to add weight to the front? Also, are there any dealers near Yankton, SD? Thanks

    No need

    That video is old and from a prototype unit made 18 months ago

    The unit has 150 lbs of weight bolted to the bottom of it for production under the engine now

    And yes you could add more if wanted but not one person has.

    I can check on dealers but you can always buy direct from our website.
