The summer after the year I hit the 100 aeration mark (for spring and summer combined). More than anything, your body will no longer take a beating. I can probably aerate 50% more lawns in a day with my ride on. The load/unload time and commute time from job to job is the same as using a walk behind. The time you save is when you are actually on the lawn. If you have a tight route, you will be even better off. Add a dually walk behind with sulky to the mix and your productivity will skyrocket!!
