Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jethro Better than I expected
I was very impressed with the quality. Heavy metal and solid material. I have almost an acre of yard and with the 48" wide Ohio Steel Aerator I was done punching holes withing a couple of hours. It performed as it said and punched 2 to 3 inch holes about 3 to 4 inches apart. I could not find another aerator that could even come close and I tried 3 others. Works great right after a good rain or other means of water. The tray holds 5 center blocks easily and you don't need to strap them down. The Aerator is wonderful. I had no problems going over roots or occasional rocks. Performance was better than I could have imagined. Well worth the money to me.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bandman66 You get more than what you pay for!
This American made aerator is high quality but for a reasonable price. Assembly instructions are clear and easy to follow. Machine is super easy to use. It was all I was looking for and more. I will be using this to improve and maintain my lawn for many years to come. The only suggestion I would have would be to have the weight tray wider (front to back by an inch) to more easily accommodate the concrete blocks used for weight and to be able to attach tie-downs to make it a more secure unit, but it does work if you manage to get the hooks from the tie-downs in the holes in the tray.

After using another manufacturer's tow behind core aerator (which worked OK) I decided on this one because of the large pnumatic tires and it is commercial grade. (I lend out my tools frequently and I wanted something that would hold up to abuse) It Pulls great plugs from the lawn, and each corer is spring loaded. Assembly took just over an hour and was pretty basic. I expect this product to last a lifetime. I would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BubbaMD Great product, easy to assemble and use.
The box arrived a week after ordering, took two hours to assemble, both wheels were deflated requiring professional help from the tire store.
Product works well as specified, after a trial and some frustration I built a temp wood cage to hold the two hundred pounds of sand bags from falling out (would recommend the factory add a cage as an option). Spent four hours in August aerating my two hilly acres for the first time, had to wait for a good rain storm to soften the hard top, the results were obvious in two weeks. I Recently aerated the the lawn again and could not be happier with the results, product quality and the ease of use.

Well, where do I start? I bought this product because it said it was "professional grade." I used it to do 5 residential yards, approx. 8k-10k square feet each, and now the spot welds that hold the rear axles on are both broken loose and the tires are leaning way in at the top. My second complaint is that in order for you to get any kind of penetration at all, the ground has to be so wet that the mower pulling the device leaves huge tire ruts. Overall, I am very disappointed with this piece of equipment and will go back to renting next season.
