Just keeps "plugging" away...

" Product comes unassembled - but assembly is not difficult. Mounts very easily in the Smartlink Master Platform. With ~140lbs of weight on the platform, this pulled out some respectable plugs. It definitely works best if the soil is damp, so if you have dry spots, don't expect much. However, a quick watering of the lawn before plugging will help this tool do its job even better on those spots.
Cleanup is not bad if you've got a hose (you'll get muddy, but who wears good clothes for yard work?). After spraying it off, I recommend blowing/drying with an air compressor, and then a light spray of rust-preventative - It will help keep those points sharp! "

Not great at all

" Not difficult to put together but only core aerates about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch deep. I may have found one or two cores that were about an inch. Need at least an inch or two I thought. I had 4 cinder blocks and two 36 lbs. bags of fertilizer on the platform which was about 144 lbs. total, with a 150 lbs. rating. The whole thing isn't great at all. I also used the detacher which is ok until the tines fill with thatch and you need to physically clean them. I don't recommend this for aerating, dethatching or anything for your lawn. I recommend a walk behind that you rent every year as needed. If your lawn is too big like mine, big money and a lot of walking! I don't know what to tell ya. This does not do It. I did see a stand alone Agri Fab core aerator with the 46 lbs. John Deere weights on it, on Youtube, which seemed to work great, at least 1 or 2 inch plugs. I'm looking into something like that. Going to see if I can send this back. "

" Very happy with this product, Shipping was quick and assembled took about half hour and went smoothly. Used it once a few days after a rain and it worked great. I am interested to see how it works on harder ground, I was happy with how it's built, seems very sturdy . I also purchased the Dethatcher, and the smart cart. I am Very happy with all Agri-Fab Products I have purchased. "
