Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hyflyer very good, simple construction if you read the instructions
Aerator was fairly simple to build. The only caveat is pay clos attention to the instructions when assembling the blades or else they wont fit. The package was damaged in transit by UPS. When I called Agri-fab I was greeted by a friendly operator that sounded lnowledgable and quickly sent my missing pices out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill B Good but hard to assemble
The overall quality is good but the assembly instructions are poor because of the lack of identification for the frame sections. A tape label on the upper and lower hopper tube would help. I had to disassemble and redo twice before I had the right combination.

I purchased this aerator because it appeared to look more rugged and durable than other models I saw. the aerator blades seem to penetrate well and aerate without leaving chucks of dirt/grass all over. I used 2 cinder blocks for weights, and that seems to work well. For harder ground I've had someone else stand on the bricks for more weight - but this is more a function of the ground hardness than the aerator I believe. For the price, I think it's a great aerator.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug2 Works well if you have a friend stand on it
I tried piling 4 cement blocks onto it, standing each up and, when that didn't work well, laying one down on each end and stacking a 2nd block on top of each (again for a total of 4 blocks). But each time I turned the rig around, or went over a bump in the yard, the bloody cement blocks would bounce off even though I had them strapped down with bungee cords. And it was hard to lift up the aerator blades with so much weight on the aerator when I went ti turn the rig around. So I asked my wife to drive the garden tractor while I stood on the aerator, hopping off each time we had to turn the rig around 180 degrees to go the other direction. That worked well, but it still took a lot of time to do our entire yard (we have 1/2 acre). The unti does not dig into the ground as deeply as a plug aerator, so you may want to think about that when deciding which type of aerator you want to buy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oldgamer aerator - pull behind
the unit needs extra weight and the soil needs to be damp before it really digs in deep enough.
