Harley rake/box rake worth the big $$$$???

I need help from the seeding/overseeding Guru's. I am trying to get established in this niche. I need advice on equipment set up. One piece that I am wondering if I can't live with out is a box rake. Does it do enough good to be worth 8-9K. What other pieces of equipment are a must have for this line?

Here is a list of my renovation and seeding equipment so far. Tell me what I should add.

CaseIH Farmal dx45 with cab. I added front and rear remotes, it has the skid steer plate and 14 gpm hydraulics.
5 ft reverse tine tiller
6 ft box blade
7 ft reversable harrow
Z spray for fert and broadcast seeding, I use the harrow to cover.
Lawn Solution Turf revitilzer

Thanks JB1 for the reply. I think I could use a skidsteer type in front on my tractor or a PTO one on the back. Any advice there?
