Smartlink 13 in. Plug Aerator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but not great. I have tried my aerator twice so far. Yes, it pulls out plugs, but not full-sized plugs like a professional machine could do (even weighted down with 5 or 6 cement blocks). Maybe if the soil is totally saturated, it would work better. I liked the fact that I could also use a dethatcher with the same base to save space, but I have not been overly impressed with that feature either. Maybe my lawn doesn't have a lot of thatch, or maybe the dethatcher is just not great. Obviously, doing it yourself, will save you money, but as always, you get what you pay for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I bought this at the same time I bought the base unit. All the parts were there, nothing missing, generally well packed. Instructions were pretty non existant. Theres a drawing with parts exploded but thats it. Assembly was fairly straigtforward after you took the time to figure out their drawing. They could have made it easier with a few tips, but they didnt. Do yourself a favor to speed up assembly, have a 1/2 inch socket handy, its the basic tool,youll need to put it together faster. Once I started it, it worked for about 10 feet then fell apart. The pin for the end tab is melted together so you have to split the tabs to put one in and one out of the hole. Fortunately I had a better linch pin available, so I used it. For $80 youd think theyd put a little better one in. As far as the performance, it was great. Pulled up one inch plugs all over the yard. Worked great, very pleased. I'm wondering how long it will be before my neighbors who are paying $200 a year to get aeriated ask me to do it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super Features I bought this last fall. The boxes it came in were damaged and parts were missing. Whoever the woman I spoke to at Agri-Fab could not have been more helpful. I am cautious about using the aerator because I could not get a bracket to hold place on the tray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Aerator!!! I bought the Master Platform with Aerator in 2012. It does great on my 1/2 acre lawn. Years past I rented aerators always felt rushed getting them back in a 4 hour time frame. Now I can do my lawn maintenance with ease. There's nothing like doing a good job and taking your time doing a good job. I like to aerate my lawn twice a year and in years past lucky to do it once every 2 years. Well worth the money and easy to store it. I also have De-thatcher, Roller, and Turf Shark Aerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement tongue for my plug aereator 40" I bought this 40" plug aereator back in the spring 2004 and use it annually on my 2+acre lot. It does a great job. I have four cement blocks on it for weight.This is my first repair in 11 years. Great to be able to still get parts at a reasonable cost, with just a phone call and receive them in a few days. Thanks much!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unhappy. This is supposed to fit into the Smartlink base system. You need a plate that attaches to the system apparently to help the aerator from flexing. Try getting the nuts into the plate, try getting the plate to stay where it is supposed to, just awful. That is if all the parts come in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I like having to store only one bulky platform with smart link. The plugs are deep and large like professional jobs. Requires assembly of each little part. Careful, blades are sharp when putting tool together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We purchased the Agri-Fab Smart Link Master platform, Dethatcher and Plug Aerator. The system works great. The dethatcher took a pick-up trucks worth of dead grass out of my lawn. Then I aerated. A few weeks later my lawn is much greener & very happy. The only negative is this was shipped directly from Agri-Fab. Their packaging is terrible and we were missing parts that fell out of the ripped boxes. They did address the issue, but we had to wait for the parts. They blame UPS. I blame them. They have big, heavy, sharp items just tossed loosely in the box without packing material. You can see many comments to this effect on the internet. That said, once we got the parts that fell out of the box, the product worked great ! Glad we got it.
