I have an opportunity to by a Bluebird or a Classen Power Rake. Both are 2003 models and go for $350.00 from my rental dealer. I've used this bluebird model in the past and liked it. Never used a Classen, but have used their sod cutter and liked it. Anyone have an opinion on which to get? Also do you think its better to get a slit seeder rather than just a power rake? I did 4 lawn renovations last fall using the bluebird power rake and a broadcast spreader and they all came out great. I want to get into more of that, so I want to buy something to eliminate the rental hassle and $350 sounds like a good deal. Most of my lots are city size .10 acres or so -- pretty small. Anyone else just use a power rake for renovations? Is a slit seeder significantly better? Can I pass up a PR for $350.00? Thanks for the opinions.
