    Well it gets me pretty pumped to get out there and get at it again as we just attended a show yesterday in Toronto, Ontario and there is some real nice stuff out there. I was looking originally at aerators as an add on for my business but started looking and thinking about the overseeders. Lots of different ones with major price differences but I was leaning towards the Husquavarna. Is there any feed back out there about this or questions about the show?

    Go with the Bluebird overseeder its the same as the husqvarna model but costs less. Its $1,150.00 at www.alamia.com and free shipping but not sure about Canada.

    Do you have this product and if so has it been a worth while investment for your business or does it sit idle more than use?
    Thanks

    Next question is what are you charging for the overseeding with the machine and seed?

    sorry I don't give out my rates or the way I bill. Until you figure out what you need to charge try charging by the hour for labor and then for whatever the seed cost is.
