Would it be wise to be an Aerator? Can I sell my services and make money? I love what they do and I am getting tired of going to Home Depot and Lowes trying to find one. There are other places that rent too but this is the time of the season where the rentals are gone all the time.

If I spend that kind of money, I want to use it and make money as well. I have used BlueBird, Ryans and Turfco. What do you think? Can I make money?

An aerator is basically a tiler with a special aerator attachment. So for around $600usd it would pay for itself in three years if you just do your own lawn twice a year. Commercial service charge about $75-$85 to aerate a small to medium size lawn each time.
