I bought this unit at a local hardware store, and just finished aerating my front yard with it. While it's a fairly time consuming process on even a small yard, the unit functioned fine. My yard is soiled of mostly clay. I waited until a few days after a good rain, so that the soil would be fairly soft, but not too sticky. The two prongs work well to pull plugs out of the soil, and are open at the top, so that the soil being pulled out just pops out of the holes on top as you go along. With clay soil, there will definitely be some hiccups in this function, as clay tends to clog the prongs up from time to time. I just carried a stick with me that I could jam down through the top to unplug the prongs, and everything went fine. You can easily look down from a standing position and see if the prongs are clear or not. So other than my clay soil causing the occasional delay, everything went quite smoothly.
Some reviewers have complained of the handle bending on this unit. To bend...
Purchased yesterday at a local lawn store. Went to work on a 1500 foot backyard of st augustine, was aerated 3 years ago.
Bottom steel bar is bent halfway through the job, handle is bent as well.
Tines are no longer at 90 degrees and will not push straight into the soil.
Avoid this product, it is crap.
I bought this to aerate areas of my lawn. The soil is fairly compact, and although my lawn looks nice, I wanted to help it along.
Because of the compactness of the soil, I really have to jump on the tines to get them to sink in. I then move the handle back and forth to set the tines all the way in. This side to side movement has caused the metal foot support to bend, due to the handle not mounting in the center, and this is causing the paint to crack and chip off. Over time, the metal will probably break from repeated use. In areas where the soil is not so compact it works very well.
