Turns out the unit was actually a AE550 according to the tags on the machine. I remembered that I had an old mower with a bar engagement that wasnt being used, so I may try to use that for my Drive bar repair. I'll try and get a few pictures up and maybe start a new thread for that repair work.
I spent a great deal of time searching this site about aeration prices. I still havent figured out exactly what I want to do there (pricing wise). I do appreciate the individual who sent me a PM about their information, and how they do it. that information was much appreciated.
most of the yards im going to aerate will be under 2500 sq feet im guessing, and this area is not going to allow me to charge a lot for this service. Ill have to find a happy medium between "value pricing and quality service at a price that is affordable. that isnt easy...LOL!
