another... the Ryan aerator belongs to LS member Jason Rose, he was kind enough to let me use it for the weekend. I am surprised, I managed to run it over 7 lawns and not mess up anything.

How much does storage run you?

Also your rear bumper looks like its sagging or something out of alignment.

Storage unit is $68/mo, but they plan to raise rates in Nov. to $75.

The rear bumper... I honestly dont know. It does apper to be sagging or something in the picture, but the trailer is hooked to a seperate hitch, not to the bumper.

So far, the storage unit has been turning out to be a good idea. Not only is all my stuff there in the same place, it is locked up, and inside. And I never have to unload anything from the trailer at night.

Quick Question.

I've never Aerated before,

But is that seed your putting down? Do you charge extra for that?

Yea, thats seed. I charge 2.5 to 3 times the mowing rate for the aeration, and then charge $15 to spread seed.

So Technically, You didn't need your mowers on the trailer while you were just aerating, right?

Have you ever dethatched, and would you rather detatch or aerator, is there more money in one or the other, and do you pick up the plugs after your done.

Well, i was doing aerating inbetween mowing that day, so i did need the mowers. I have powerraked one yard this season, and it is a lot easier then aerating, but you got to go over it at least three times with the mower to get ALL of the thatch picked up, but really two would work.

On aerating, I dont think anyone really picks up plugs around here. They erode away real quick, so it dont really matter. I think there is good money in both, as long as you charge enough.

is this a serious question? I am not making fun or trying to be rude but if you run a landscaping com. and don't know the answer, you are in for a rude awakening. I am assuming 15$/M for seed right KC?

I put down seed right at 5lbs/thousand square feet, and i get $2 a pound for the seed.

Get ready for it, there is a lot of that on here. What is supposed to be a helpful site is full of immature, self-righteous A_HOLES that evidently never had to start from the bottom, and knew it all from the womb!

Nice setup by the way Ks Grasscuter, I love the trailer. If you older guys are so mature why isn't this BS in the off topic forum.

Thanks, I appreciate the compliments. LOTS of hard work is going to pay off all my stuff.

It is amazing how handy that trailer is, you can literally hook stuff ANYWHERE on the trailer with ratchet straps and whatnot. I havent used it for leafs yet, but i am sure it will be perfecct for that too.

Probablly not, but i keep my aerator, leaf vac, edger, etc. behind the trailer there, and the regular stuff just stays on the trailer. NO wasted time loading and unloading:)

Also Ks Grasscutter how is the John Deere trimmer? Is it well built enough that you would buy another? Thanks.

Love the trimmer. It is a mid 90s model that my dad gave me. It had limited use before i got it, he used it around the house here, and the shop at the farm, and that is basically it. I have had real good luck with it. This will be its last season of fulltime use. The next one will either be a stihl or deere, not sure yet.
