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.
