Used the Perfaerator this week!

Well, I finally got to use my new Walker Perfaerator this week. All I can say is WOW. This thing is a great time saver. I used two Blue Birds from the rental shop last year on one of my properties and it took 4.5 hours with both machines going. This year I used one Blue bird and the perf. and it only took 1 hour. It is a PITA to load on/off the trailer, but get it to grass and it is sweet. Its very maneuverable and does a very nice job of plugging. I am never going through an aeration season with out it. Just thought I would post a review for all who think it looks good but had heard negative feedback. I can see that if someone did not know how to use it correctly, they would not like it. It can be very destructive, however, used properly it is a very nice machine. Tim

I have a millcreek front mount aerator for the walker and I think it is the worst thing I've ever purchased.

Very hard to manuver and dosen't seem to get decent size plugs pulled...

Looks cool as hell though... I'll get a pic posted in a few....

Would love to try a perferator...

I am not sure the 15 hp Kawi would have enough balls to work the perfaerator. It would mount up though. I think it really needs to be with at least a 20 hp motor. That sure would be cool though. tim

LB Landscaping - Did you try one out? If so, what did you think. tim

Hey Tim, I did. Tried it out this afternoon, I loved the way it handles, really smooth, sulky works great too. I just don't like the idea of not being able to bag or mulch. dealer said it will mulch but won't leave a great cut. Grass gets pretty thick up here so I need something that can handle it, especially when it's wet out.
