As a whole this looks like it will work well, however it really needs weight to work effectively and ground should be wet. Would advise going to a heavier product and something that makes plugs. Product is light, but durable.
Easy buying online and picking up in store. Instructions are a little tricky to follow but go by the diagrams and it worked well. Product should work well and last many years but I bought 4 landscape stones from ***** Hardware to go on top for added weight and they fit perfectly.

Was a ;ittle hesitent after the reviews but tried it any way. Very easy to assemble once I read through the instuctions. Once hooked up to tractor it was very easy to use. Did a great job. Was happy to see that it did not make the yard look like swiss cheese like spike aerators do. Was very happy with the way it made the graas grow. Saved a lot of money doing it myself.
If you want a low priced but decent quality aerator, this is it. It's only a spike not a plug aerator so you have to go around a few times but who cares on a tractor? The only thing it's missing is wheels so I can drive across my driveway instead of having to disconnect and carry it over.
Works good, It was easy to assemble. Parts were all included. Nothing missing.. I wished it had wheels on it to lift it up on concrete. I will use it about twice a year. The neighbor across the street has asked to borrow it already.
Previous reviews were iffy, Took a chance ang bought it with my rewards points. Little timely to put together but worth it. Used two sandbags ontop 100lbs total, penetrated as deep as it could. Metal seems strong. Good machine. Even travels well over cement driveway.
Aerator seems to do the job just fine. I got it on sale for $59 bucks so I really can't complain. It appears to be well constructed and handled two blocks just fine. Spikes dug into the soil. People may gripe that you don't have transport wheels so you have to detach and carry accross concrete, but you know this going in so that is really on you. Don't run it accross your driveway or sidewalk. Not a good idea. I personally appreciate the fact that it takes up less space in my shed. You can even stand it upright in the corner so it has a very small footprint. For the fact that this is an entry level aerator, you can't do any better. I saw other brands elsewwhere that looked flimsy and cheap.
We stopped at our local Sears Store here in Englewood to see the owner Clif, Clif has always been very helpful with all of our purchases, we like to keep our business local and our little store is great for items for the home and the owner and employees are also very helpful.

This product is adequate. It would be nice if it was heavier on its own so you didn't have to add as much weight to it. If your yard is dry, don't expect it to do anything. Best if used after a rain or a lot of watering. I get much more use out of the dethatcher.

Purchased the item on-line picked it up at a local Sears store it would have been nice if there were a different type of spike to be used or alternate between and tie down straps for the weights, lets face it not everyone has bunjee straps for holding cynder blocks in place!
