The things you do for love...
She says she has to aerate in May so I knew I had to finally put the thing together.
When the internet says it takes five hours to assemble a core aerator and the written instructions say "this is a difficult assembly," you know you are right and truly screwed.
The blades on that thing are like 6" curved razors. It is unwieldy and weighs 70+ pounds without the concrete weights you put on it when operating it. Utterly terrifying piece of machinery.
Supposed to be a two person job but I did it with the wife helping for the last 15” only because I am a stubborn old fart. My back is killing me and I need a shower badly. I need narcotics.
The things you do for love, indeed.
