Hi again everyone. While at work today, i went to the rental dept. at HOME DEPOT. They had a BLUEBIRD 530 Lawn Aerator FOR SALE for $750. it looked to be in good condition. It has a 4 or 5 HP Honda engine on it. I think the time to aeriate is over, but it would be a great addition to all my other lawn equipment. I'm in the Houston, Tx area, and to be honest, in all my 25+ years of living here, i have never seen ANY lawn being aeriated down here. My brother, who lives in Iowa, says that aeriating is a big thing up where he lives, where home owners actually give a s--t about how their lawn looks, but dosn't think that the cheap a-- people down here actually understand what aeriating can do for their lawn. So, would it be a good purchase at this time of the season or not. Thanks in advance for your input.
