    Just trying to get a ballpark on how much it should cost to rent an aerator for a couple of hours ? Any ideas greatly appreciated.

    I rent a walk behind (I believe it is 26-30") for $30/ day at the local rental shop.

    Around here they are around $30 an hour with a 2 or 3 hour minimum! I've never checked on what a full day rate would bem but the way most of theose places operate it would just be $30 x 8= 240. And people wonder why most guys choose to OWN their own equipment...
