My experience with it has generally been favorable, but I have had to learn how to use it on my lawn. When I first used it, the soil was very hard even after rain, and the aerator would only pull out plugs of 1/2 inch or so long. I did what I could. Then when it got wet again a few days later, the soil would be softer to a little deeper level and I used the aerator again to pull out some longer plugs. After about 3 iterations of this, the soil started getting soft and wet much deeper. It has been a fairly dramatic change in some areas. I now look for small areas that are still hard and aerate them. The soil is functioning reasonably well now and the lawn looks much better. Doing some aeration every few days is easier for me than making it a larger, less frequent job.
The aerator works well when the soil has just the right moisture. If it is too wet, the aerator pushes the soil aside and does not cut plugs. If it is too dry, the aerator is hard to use and frequently gets clogged and has to be cleaned out. Spraying lubricant did not help for me.
I’m giving it 4 stars not 5 because one side tends to clog much more frequently than the other. I have examined it carefully and cannot see a reason for this. Apparently it is some subtle manufacturing difference. I have experimented to verify that it is not due to my technique in using it.
EDIT - first year it worked well. Now, it is really clogging all the time. I tried to take a Dremel and sharpen the fronts of the corers. Didn't seem to work. Don't know if a) the tines are now a little bent, which causes the dirt to not be able to move straight up? or b) it is not tapered enough? I could see that you would want a taper so that it is cutting a plug that is smaller diameter than the rest of the tube, or c) there is some sort of friction on the inner part of the tines?
The best I've gotten is one side working while the other was clogged.
The plugged tube still makes holes; perhaps it's still as effective as the tube that spits out bores. But it's not performing optimally.
