these stand on aerators are like skid steers, no one can ever justify the cost of one, because they just don't have enough work for it, then they get one and wonder what they ever did with out it. It's a psychological barrier, built it and they will come. there are tons of aeration jobs out there that need to be done because you think they are a $100 job and the customer is willing to pay $45 for it. With this machine the $100 walk behind job is easily a $45 ride on job. Buy the machine, go out and sell the work accordingly.
