awful product
Product was missing parts. Easy to put together. Use one time and frame bent and tool spikes out of whack. used for about 10 minutes and quit using because it was so cheap it basically came apart. Recommend not to waste money on this.

Excellent tool for my yard.

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not bad for the price

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Spike Aerator

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good deal, good machine

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Buy

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Spike Aerator

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.

Merely Adequate

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!

Flimsy, angle iron too thin, save your money

Put it together by looking at the picture on the box and skimming through the instructions, so that parts easy. Took it out on somewhat soft soil with about 80 pounds on it for about 30 minutes, does the job it's supposed to. The spikes went into the ground about 1 1/2" so I know that my weight was adequate. But, when I took the blocks off, like many others I noticed the angle iron was bent to he!!. It's only 1/16" so you can't really expect it to carry as much weight as it claims. Guess I thought it was super iron or something. I'm going to keep it and just spend 13 bucks for some 1/8" angle iron and replace the crap that's on it. (I need things to do on the weekends) I don't understand why it wasn't made with 1/8" in the first place, I would have spent the extra 15 bucks or so. Also, the average guy isn't going to do what I'm going to do to fix it. Most people want something to work right out of the box. But, then again, compared to other brand aerators, what does a guy expect for this price? It looks pretty and can probably safely carry about 50 or 60 pounds. You definetely get what you pay for. I would recommend average Joe buy something better or be ready to modify this thing in your own way right out of the box. It does what it's supposed to, but the weight rating is way off par. Unless you're going to work sod and don't need much weight, buy something more expensive (heavy Duty). I give it a 1 star, because I don't even think it's worth the sale price that I paid for the use it's intended for. But, if you pretty much just want to build your own, it's a good starter kit. Maybe that's what they should market it as.
