Lawn aeration is something that should be done at least twice a year with the clay-rich soil we have here in Colorado. Before using the aerator, sprinklers should be marked and your lawn should be thoroughly watered. This will insure good, deep plugs. An aerator is very heavy and requires two strong people to load or unload and has collapsible handles. All of our gas driven equipment comes to you full of gas and does not need to be refilled before return. The user of this item must come in to receive full use and safety instructions. This item is only available during our open hours. No overnight rentals on this item due to insurance liability.
