    More specifically, a tow behind core/plug aerator.

    wow, thats alot more than I expected. If I was too guess, I would have thought in the $400-$500 range. Is the one from Lowe's a core aerator as well? I know that Lowe's may not be as durable as Lesco, but thats a pretty big difference in price.

    I figured it had to be something...I guess for now, I have to keep renting until I build up a big enough clientele for aerating to justify purchasing one. Thanks.

    i use the lesco 60" and two walkbehind units. it is worth the money. dont buy cheap garbage that will last only a short time. invest the money once. if you are going to purchase a pull behind consider a walk behind unit as well. what about the smaller yards or the tight areas where you will not get the big one. if you are going to go the job do it right.
