Re: Brinly-Hardy 40" Tow-Behind Plug Aerator Review
Originally I used a Scotts tractor made by Murray with a weak Peerless trans. Lasted longer than it should have. In Atlanta I pulled the aerator up some very steep hills and sometimes had to go up the less steep side with tines raised, across the back yard and then down the steep side plugging down hill. Atlanta clay required a lot of weight on the aerator. Severe abuse the trans had. If you abuse the tractor it will not last. On flat yards most tractors should do fine just rolling the aerator.
