What do you think about these pull aerators. Home depot sells them. I think if you put 150-200 lbs on them they would probably do ok. Here is the linkhome depot (http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&productId=100137013&N=528351+90109)

I found one in my area for $75.00 is it worth it. I have never don aeration before, is it easy to do?

Sincerely

I've only worked with push-operated aerators, but I would say it's definitely worth it...especially with the push for organic/natural lawncare these days, aeration is pretty important for a healthy lawn.

I thought it would do ok. For $75.00 I could charge $25.00 on a smaller lawn and break even after 3 times. I think I am going to give it a try.

Go for it, it will be worth it. In our town this is a good profitable part of the business i stress hard for this service. It makes lawn very healthy, But the key is to educate the customer because they dont know do your homework before you go out and sell it read up on it so when the customer ask what is aerating you can answer rite and sell
