Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fastfreed works great
Works as intended. I even clipped a couple trees and it didn't effect it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JC spike areator
easy assembly, packaging good. Make sure lawn is really moist to get the full benefits of the aerator. If the soil is dry does not penetrate deep enough even with using 3 cement blocks. Also use some light oil on all moving parts. Spikes are all independent moving

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by twotoms great value for the money
Yard was in neglect for years, small yard, frony and rear. I have COPD so cant push mower anymore, having bought tracter enabled me to buy and use aerater. Did 50x50 front yard for 2 hours, fertilizer and limed it. After 3 weeks yard looks better than it ever has and have not overseeded it yet. Planning to overseed and aerate same way again.
When turning around towed it swlowly over concrete and blacktop with no damage to hard surfaces or the tool. Very difficult,impossible to back it up. It turns out one way or the other. Tried many times, not saying I wont continue to try I am very satisfied

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thesoup Worth the reasonable price for what you get.
It's really easy to assemble if you get your son to do it.
Seems to penetrate the soil well if you add several cinderblocks to the tray provided. (Need to secure blocks with bungee cords.)
Hard to back up. May be the operator's fault but maybe the hitch bar is too short.
It's a real pain in the neck to raise and lower the spikes on/off the ground to/from the wheels...have to get off my mower to do it.
For the money I'm satisfied with this product.

For the money paid, this aerator works well when the ground has absorbed some rain and you have two cement blocks on it for penetration weight. I used my old John Deere riding mower to tow it with great results. Fine for a yard of 15,000 sf.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by coorstogo Okay with small modification - Needs a better tow bar
Reviews are right about the tow bar being lightweight and bending easy. If the aerator's tire finds a pot hole in the yard while towing it around or just from normal use with additional weight on it so it will work well - it will bend. Easy fix is to weld a piece of angle iron along the side of the tow bar to strengthen it before assembly. Otherwise, machine works great does what it is suppose to do and price is okay for what you get. Rated overall average and not durable because of tow bar issue. Assembly is easy and straight forward.
