    First let me start I do this part time and I am a solo operator. I have a 48 Metro for my mower and so far have no problems with it and it suites the yards I have great, I am looking at buying a dethatcher. I have done a few of those jobs and would just rent one but I think I can really push that service or would you save the money and put it towards a ZTR.

    aeration is much more useful than dethatching.
    Allowing the air to get to the thatch will decompose it.
    If a yard is so bad that it needs to be dethatched, scrape it off w/ a skid steer.
