    Bob , I called you guys a few days ago on the new aerator. Is that correct if I ordered now it wouldn't be shipped until march or maybe the end of march? I just sold my Classen in hoping I wouldn't have to break my back this spring.

    Whatever sales told you should be gospel. They are real good about hitting times and shipping. They also have a number of programs going that I am not familiar with so it is always best to talk with them when it comes to sales, shipping, pricing or anything like that. I am just a Tech Guy and know all the nuts and bolts. I am not allowed in the sales department.

    Bob - how many holes will you get with this machine per sq ft, one pass?

    I think Bob will say 6 but I believe the spacing is 4" x 6" same as the other Turfco's.

    I'm wondering when specs of this unit will make onto the website? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I purchased this unit new March 2012(started aeration business) direct from Turfco after seeing the videos. After using the machine which is the only aerator I have used, I have decided the videos they used their machine did not have any tines on them as you CANNOT move that machine around turns as easily as they do in the videos, sorry, nope notta,can;t be done.

    Not sure what you're talking about because I have no issues with maneuverability of the XT5. Have you tried lifting the front end when you turn?

    I just love my new xt5. It operates like a hydro walk-behind/pushmower. Im glad its so nice. Yes, front wheels up & you turn around in a jiffy.

    Searching for a remedy to loading aerator. I hate to fight with getting it on the trailer each time since one wheel just spins.
