Q: Will this work with a Cub Cadet riding mower?
by Maureen Alston from Massachusetts on March 25, 2014

A: Thank you for contacting Mowers direct, you can use this aerator on your mower but I would recommend checking the towing capacity of your mower to make sure you do not do any damage to the mower itself.

Ohio Steel 42'' In. Core Plug Aerator
Instructions were good. It was not hard to put together. I used it after the summer months of heat before a good rain that was expected. I just cut my grass for the second time today since using the core plug aerator just two weeks ago . The grass is up green and growing. I love it. In fact after seeing my lawn turn green so fast and growing, one of my neighbors as already asked to borrow it. I guess the grass is greener on the other side.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Assembly
The unit came with the tines assembled to the hubs with the nuts located on the inside of the tines thus partially blocking the exit for the cores. This caused some plugging of the tines but by reversing the direction of the bolts so that the heads were on the inside of the tines this problem was eliminated.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store

I like the unit. Just make sure you have room to store it. Assembled, it is pretty wide.

Good Aerator
Fast service. Easy assembly. Seems to do a good job for the price.

My lawn service wanted over $300 to aerate my yard one time so this seemed to be a good investment.

Works Great, Assembly Wasn't Easy
The plastic spacers that separate the tines were very tight on the axle, making it difficult to assemble. It took some creative thinking, a 5 lb sledge, and some serious elbow grease to get this thing together.

That being said, it is well constructed after it's together and does the job well. I recommend at least 3 cinder blocks for weight as the tines need that little extra push into the ground.

Good Company
I had a problem with a bent part. I filled out the online form and received the part in about 3 days.

I like the product and would buy an Ohio Steel product anytime.

I'd buy another, but hope not to have to!

Wish I Owned More Property!
For years, I used to use a 21" mower & would always consider mowing my lawn to be a 3 - 4 hour "chore". With my new 32" TimeCutter I'm done in 45 minutes - I wish I owned more property!

It took 2 - 3 mowings to get use to the feel of it, but it's the perfect size for getting around landscaping, so mowing is no longer a "chore".

The bagger attachment is a definite plus. It not only does a beautiful job picking up grass, this time of year in New England... more
