    How many people? What aerators? Is it flat and open? A lot of trees and hills? A normal flat acre around here with a few trees would take us about an hour and a half with 2 plugrs.

    1 person, split drive walk behind aerator, but i will be purchasing the new exmark stand on. but i know what my hourly rate is, i am not going to charge 75 buks for an acre of aerating when the competitor could charge lets say 300. not trying to loose that type of money.
