I am brand new here. I operate a top dressing business. I want to start a high volume core aeration business. Any links or info on how to set that up would be appreciated.

Hey onebreezer
Welcome to the forum. I am sure that you will find useful info here. You might try typing "core aeration" or just "aeration" in the search feature at the top of the page. You will get the chance to read thru many discussions regarding all aspects of aeration.
On another note could you tell me what kind of equipment you started with and are now using to get the top dressing portion of your business going? I would appreciate it.

I use a Turfco Metermatic. I pull it on a small trailer hooked behind a 6500 GMC. The truck is fabbed w/ a fertilizer spreader. I pull the topdresser under the truck conveyor and it loads it in about 2 seconds. The top dresser spreads it's load in around 2-3 minutes. I can load and spread seven yards of topsoil in two hours.
