Skidsteer and power rake

Planning a renovation of my back yard in the next few weeks. Intially I was just going to rent a slit seeder and do it that way, however, I have been really looking at my yard and there are a few drainage issues that could use addressing as well.

I am looking at about 25k sq. ft, and am having trouble finding a small tractor this time of year as all of my farmer buddies are using theirs for grain augers. I have looked ar renting a skid steer and power rake. It appears from videos that this would work to prep the soil and deal with drainage. Am I seeing this correctly? Do you recommend any other way?

I have begun lowering the mowing height over the past 2 weeks and plan to reseed with Southern Supreme tall fescue and apply dimension for weed control after seeding as well as normal applications of lime and starter fertilizer.
