Well guys, I finally met somebody today who has changed my life. His name is Al, he introduced me today to the Aeravator. At 8:30 today we met up at a customer's house. I had tried aerating this lawn with a 28" Ryan core aerator last year. Got those nice 1/2" plugs, when the machine was bouncing off the lawn. Even after plenty of rain. I remember just the front lawn took me a couple of hours to do. The front lawn is about 5M sq ft. One nice big level spot, but both sides are hills. Well Al got the machine off the trailer today, (14' dovetail) we talked about the machine, the aeravator, trailer, and golf courses. We finally got the machine onto the lawn after all that talking. He turned the PTO on the tractor on. (855 JD tractor pulling the 60" aeravator) I walked behind the machine checking out the performance. I immediatley noticed that a lot of macropores had been added to the soil. I stuck my finger into a punched hole, my whole finger went in there I ran the machine over the lawn for a bit. Some spots got hit like 6 times due to turning. Other spots got hit 2 times. The spots that were done 6 times looked like they had been a part of a prison rape gone wrong all full of holes. This was a MASSIVE difference from aeration with that 28" Ryan. I believe it took us, with BS'ing about 45 minutes to go over the area, 2 times. Before I ran the yard over I put down some grass seed. Al and I got to talking, and he said they want to sell the tractor they were pulling the aeravator with. They want just under 10K for the tractor w/ 2100 hours on it, and a 2 year old aeravator. The aeravator before tax over here is like 6K and the tractor is 4x4 diesel, no loader. I am in love.. Well here is the thing. The dealer is about 100 miles away. Dealer is Turf Products? The guy lives by me though, they come pick the machine up if it breaks, if I need parts; UPS. Also, only people who have these machines by me is the golf courses and a few parks depts. I will be the only LCO in my county and a few others that has an aeravator. Al told me the best way to advertise this service is to talk with other landscapers, show them first and then sub. How does one advertise to other landscapers? Or to homeowners for aeravation? Also, I am thinking about $25 or $30 per thousand Sq Ft for just aeravation, and somewhere around $50 - $60 for aeravation / seeding per thousand Sq. Ft. Also today when I was done aeravating, I put down some more seed, some starter fertilizer, and some gypsum. I will testify to anybody who does not believe in the Aeravator. Now hows about some help here with advertising and pricing?
