So I traded my Kees 36" belt drive walk behind for a Ryan Lawnair 28. Straight trade . I didn't use the Kees much and figured I could make more in the long run off of an aerator rather than a mower that I don't particularly like. (It's 36", yet won't fit through some gates that my 36" Hustler ZTR fits through.) The Aerator's hood is a bit beat up, and I need to replace both back tires, but everything works as it should. I will be doing a tune-up on it as well as replacing a couple of belts before starting aerations next month (Bermuda and St.Aug, then September for Fescue).
I'm excited to practice on my lawn, my dad's lawn, and a freind's lawn to get used to the machine and see what to do and what not to do. I have never aerated before, but I talked to the shop I do most of my business with and he said he wished more people did it down here.
I figure that I may get several current customers who want to do it, which helps me out. I also figure on getting several non-customers who want the service. I like the idea of that because it may be an avenue into more business. We shall see how it goes. Pics soon to come.
What if the hokey pokey really IS what it's all about?!
