How it performed . I put 2 8x8x16 cinder blocks on the back and tied them down with bungee cords . That was plenty enough weight to dig into the soil on my lawn. Even the hard packed down sections. Works even better if you aerate after it rains or you water your lawn first. It made a huge difference on my lawn . My lawn looked like death warmed over even after having a lawn care company fertilize my lawn for the last 5 years. So I cancelled my lawn care service this year and bought this aerator and a dethatcher and did it myself . My lawn is 28,000 square feet. It cost me 100 dollars more than my lawn service. But that includes buying this aerator, a dethatcher , 150 lbs of the best kentucky bluegrass seed , 300 lbs of fertilizer , 200 lbs of lime , 100 lbs of the best grub killer . Now my lawn looks like a manicured golf course. Next year it will cost me one fourth the cost the lawn care company was charging me to do it myself .
About the customer service of Brinly Hardy . After the second time I used the aerator and was putting it away , I lifted the handle to lift the tines off the ground to wheel it in storage. I noticed the tines only went up on one side. In the assembly revue above , I mentioned where the axle slides through the frame and the handle attached to the axle by a screw . The handle has a tube with a hole in it for the attachment screw, welded to the handle. The spot weld holding the tube to the handle let go. So it wouldn't turn the axle to lift up the wheel . I figured I banged it into one of the trees in my yard and broke it. I took it apart and was going to have my mechanic weld it back together. I got too busy to bring it to him so I just called the company to buy a new handle. The lady at customer service asked me if I needed a new handle because I had an old machine. I told her it was 3 months old and might of broke it by catching it on a tree or rock. She asked me to give her the serial number on the machine. So I went out to the machine and gave it to her. She then tells me there will be a new handle being shipped out to me that afternoon. Three days later a new handle showed up at my door. When I called them I had full intent on just buying a new handle. I never even asked for a new handle for free . She insisted to give me a new handle free of charge including shipping . You just cant ask for better than that in a company. I will be buying a new Brinly Hardy lawn sweeper this fall . I am very happy with this company. Customer service just doesn't get any better than that.
I'm giving it 4 stars because of one instructional flaw that should have been noticed by the manufacturer. A recommendation could have been made earlier in the assembly process that would have proven to be very wise.
My recommendation: BEFORE you assemble the tines to the axle, run the axel through the end panels. One end of the axle has a metal arm welded to it & the other end is "free". This end will ultimately be attached to the handle. The free end of the axle has a pre-drilled hole that must be matched up with a hole on the handle &, therein lies the rub. You are provided with a set of thick & thin washers which, as per the instructions, are to be placed on the axle so that they sit on either side of the end panels. A critical purpose of these washers is to take up any free space along the axle so that the aerator tines are not wobbly when they are all placed on the axle. By running the axle (without tines & plastic spacers) through the end panels you will get an idea of how many washers you will need in order to make that tight fit. Knowing this, you will only need to put the tines & the plastic spacers on once.
I hope I've described this issue clearly.
First use was yesterday. I must say that I was a bit underwhelmed. The ground was soft after a morning shower which, as others have mentioned, is important for the tines to penetrate. My lawn is not flat which significantly hampers the effectiveness of this aerator. The wheels ride up on tufts of grass &, even with about 90lbs of weight placed in the tray, too many of the tines no longer make contact with the earth. I don't know how I can correct this other than by steamrolling the lawn. I suppose what I'll have to resort to is repeated use of the aerator rather then one pass over the lawn.
