    Aerator - Everything Attachments

    Well, finally made the purchase. I just got my new Everything attachments 48" aerator. After thinking about an aerator for several months, I finally decided on the Everything Attachments drum type.
    I haven't used it yet since it is still to early in the season in the NE.

    After unloading and inspecting it, the overall quality looks pretty good. Concerning the park stands, I think I will need to do a little modification to these. I don't like that the park stands allow the unit to move several inches sideways. Probably just my perfectionism showing!!

    While changing the top link pin location from CAT 2 to CAT 1, I quickly found the top link side plates were drawn together from welding. When I removed the support spacer, I had to use a steel wedge to spread the plates to get the spacer back in.

    Very nice! I've been thinking about one of these too. I wish that I could rent one but the only one the local rental shop has is a pull behind...just not feasible for my use.

    Yeah, I have been wanting to get one too. I was looking at their disc type though. Let us know how well it works.

    I was thinking renting also, but, the only ones that I found are self-propelled or really large 3 point units that were too big for the 1025R.
    I am also one of those people that thinks, if you have to rent something three times, you may as well own it.

    Well, I sort of went back and forth between the individual disc type and the drum type. The theory is that you can turn with the individual disc type.
    With a ground engagement attachment hanging on the 3 point, I am not sure how you can turn. It doesn't matter if the spoons are on individual rotors or on a drum, when you make turns, the 3 point moves to the side which will cause the spoons to tear out the holes. I can understand that you can make sweeping turns, although, based on what other users on this forum have said, you can make sweeping turns with the drum aerator also.
    The other deciding factor that I used is, because of the 3 point lift capacity of the 1025R, the widest EA individual rotor aerator that the 1025R can handle is the 36" wide unit which isn't as wide as the tractor.

    So, considering these, I chose to go with the 48" drum type. We'll see in about a month!!

    We had a similar saying back when I worked on cars and trucks. If you have to borrow a tool three times you need to buy one. lol

    Luckily I have no need for one of these - still don't really know the need. All I do is keep my cleared areas mowed to keep the forest from encroaching. My grass is green and grows plenty fast enough for me.

    Some lawns do fine without any need for aeration. The problem I have is, my lawn is 75% hill, so as the ground has tightened over years, the water just runs off. The lower part of my yard is gorgeous, but the grass on the hill is mostly non-existent and what is there is thin which allows weed seed to get to the ground.
    After reading info on websites like PA States, here is one link Aeration of Turfgrass Areas — Center for Turfgrass Science — Penn State University, I decided that this is definitely what my yard needs.
