And my plow has been at my grandparent's house 30 miles away for a couple weeks now, this storm is an inconvenience for sure.

But I've decided to keep my Viking and install the ECS controls kit replacing the pistols, got it almost all the way installed yesterday, just had to pick up some spacers and I'll finish the rest of it this week and waiting on a new recoil for it which should arrive tmrw or Wed. Also mounted the dethatch rake and awaiting arrival of a dethatch rake mount for my Scag also. Ordered a bagger from grasspacker.com with an extra mount kit (1 for each mower) and replacement closing strap, installed the GoSlide too. Ordered Fastraps from trailerracks.com today too. Very excited to get everything on and ready and then once the snow we're supposed to get melts, sending out the rest of my advertising!





Shot of my Scag a few days after buying it.
What did the goslide cost? I have a proslide xt. I think I gave approx $400 for the proslide. Are they comparable?

Thanks! The only difference with the go & pro I think is the automatic lifting. It came to just under $200 w/ shipping.

Buying one of these next year. Operation is insanely easy, and my profits from aerating are absolutely insane. I love it. It's too bad I can't do it April-Nov 5 days a week....


I am looking to get into aeration and was wondering what you charge on average per job...

Thanks

I couldn't tell you average "per job" as our properties vary greatly in size, however, we average $100/hr or more when on site. Starting price is $75 per property for aerating.

My graphics guy did my logo and truck graphics.

When you have systems, you have control.

If youíre born poor, itís not your mistake. But if you die poor, it is your mistake.
