Has anybody ever owned a Woods/Gill super turf Renovator? I would like to buy one but the price is kinda scary. Is this thing that good and work that sweet. If anybody has one, please let me know how it works.

The machine is well built but for the same reason you are apprehensive of the price so are all but a commercial contractor who knows he can get more jobs with it.

They are around 3000.00 for a 48" unit. Plus tax. Woods lists them for 3900.00. I think it depends on the dealer and area and time of year you buy. I have ordered mine but it has not come back yet.

I don't understand why this is so expensive? It's just a pulverizer with a seed box on top right??
Couldn't you do the same thing with a $1,000 aerator and a spreader??
Does it really break up the soil or just poke holes in it for the seed??
THANKS for any help, trying to decide whether to spring for one or not. (to have for commercial work)

Mike I often wondered about the pricing of these machines but they are built to work in clay, and other hard soils all thru the year. They are heavily built and meant for years of use. Many areators won't penetrate the soil well other than in the spring so you might not get the job done that you are looking to do, or could you use one for your application.

I finally got that renovator. I haven't used it yet except to experiment in my own yard. It is built like a tank. It weighs about 690 lbs. My Bx 2200 handeles it well. So far. This fall it will get a real workout.
