I visited the Yard Marvel factory today. Looked at their aerators. Seem to be built well. A few things I liked are rear castering wheels, the plugger teeth are cam driven, so they go straight into the lawn and pull the plug straight out, so no tearing. The engine and drive are centered on the machine so no worries about lean on inclines. Plus the factory is located right in my market city so no worry about parts.<p>Curious if anybody has used one of these before and what you think of them.<p>I also looked at a Ryan for about the same price, and have used a classen. Right now kind of leaning toward the yard marvel.
