I may look at this different then everybody else but i am usually the same cost to aerate as I am to mow. I do a ton of aerating probably 200-300 homes a year and it keeps a few guys busy for the spring. Most of these client are once a year some in the fall as well but many one time calls or the crews get asked to do the neighbors as well while on the street.
I have my hourly rate for services and I stick to it. To me it doesn't matter what piece of equipment we are running they all get billed out at the same rate.
This is simply a straight aerating x1...seed, fert. or compost are all extras.
Truck, Mower, Trimmer, Blower.....same as everyone else.
