How do you like it? I have one too. I’m out using it today.
I wish I had the newer model; front wheel drive is difficult on turns when doing it all day. However, I think overall it is a proven design.
Agree with TPendagast. I have never understood why you would charge different prices for different jobs. Your per minute costs are constant, they don't change. Of course, I'm assuming you own the aerator, which you should if you are a professional.
Simply put, supply and demand. There are lots of crews with mowers etc. However, that is not the case with aeration equipment. In addition, the cost of maintenance and serviceable hours for an aerator is much different than a mower.
Just rented a 30 inch stand on zero turn for $62 out the door. No way I could own one being able to rent at that price unless I was using it every week.
Stand on zero turn is hands down the only way to aerate in my book. Toggle switch to raise and lower and high ground speed too!
The difference is as I own my aerator I can do one job, or multiples and still make money.
Was it an exmark?
I think that quote was at @zlandman
Same boat as most of these guys.
$99 for up to 5k then $12/k after that.
3/4 ac+ If we can fit the tractor $125 hour.
The cost of capital is too much for me to have one sitting around. I'm just one guy and already have enough iron sitting around to run a small village. If a guy can keep a machine somewhat busy that's great. But this one is $10k, that's eating $1000/year in opportunity cost.
