There has been alot of discussion on aeration lately and since we are in a big drought I wanted to know what type of aerator would be a good purchase?

Tow behind, Lesco (made by C l a s s e n) 42" or 60"
Walkbehind Ryan
There's a Ryan Lawnair 28 on Ebay right now. Bids start at $999

I have a Ryan 28" walkbehind. Looked at a Clausen (SP?) with duel drives, looked very nice and well built. It also looked like it would be easy to turn. Several people I've talked to say the pull behind is worthless around here unless we get a lot of rain.

i picked up a bannerman 48" split reel last season and i love it. if you are interested ,i will take a picture and e mail it to you. i still donot know how to post and place pictures on the forum.
my problem is towing it while aerating.

last season i got a new 26" wb from lesco (its a bear)i like this one.
and i have a older toro core aerator.
that lawn air 28 seems like it will work.

I feel the Lesco, Cl a s s en built tow behind is as good as it gets for the money. Very heavy duty.

I mount in on the 3 point hitch. Works great. Nice for lifting over sprinkler heads, sidewalks, and making sharp turns.
