    I use a Lesco 32" aerator. It's a walk behind, gas powered, 5.5 hp honda and it works great.

    No disrespect to anybody else, but I wouldn't rent one. Renting equipment can be expensive. I bought my aerator used off craigslist for under$600. If you rent one you'll probably pay $70 or so for the rental fee. That's at least one aeration job down the rain in rental costs.

    But, that's just my 2 cents. Check out Jrco they manufacture front mounted aerators for almost every commercial machine.

      We mostly run bluebird lawn aerators they seem to move pretty good and turning is a lot easier than some of the others.

        If you are seriously targeting aerating jobs, spend the money and get a gas powered walk behind aerator. You will regret trying to rig something up, when you could have already completed the job.
        I actually have a pull behind from Northern Tool and Equipment, I mean that is a way to go, but not with a walk behind mower.
        I've got a 42" zero turn with a hitch, how are those John Deere tow behind plug aerators? Any recommendations at all? Thanks guys!!!
