Hi~ 15 year lawn guy 1st year in business for myself. For my "real" job I manage the grounds at a large property management company- 14 hotel/ condo complexes. That's some background, for what it's worth... Anyhow, I'm looking for a 20-22" gas powered aerator for this year- You may think I would need larger but there is no such thing as flat open space in this town- all of the lawns are hilly, generally small and somewhat "overlandscaped"- not alot of open space to run with a larger machine. I'd like a nice piece of equipment but of course would like it inexpensive- I know that cheap is never the way to go with your equip, but I think some things can be overpriced- has anyone found this magical balance?
