Are these something you can rent somewhere ? If so, where and about how much ?
Thanks.

Most rental shops have them, my local rental place gets about $45 / 4 hrs.

I've read it's best to wait to aerate in the fall for tall fescue.

Thanks Robert.
I hadn't planned on doing it now - it's just seem that my lawn can use a "session"
and it seem like an expensive machine to buy to use like once a year...
Umm...does HomeDepot rent them out ? When you say local - what sort of shop should
I check ?
Thanks again

Don't know the price but I do know you can rent them at Ace
Hardware.

Check the yellow pages under rentals or equipment rentals or hardware
stores. Home Depot probably doesn't rent them, but a local True Value or
Ace might. There are also rental companies around that rent everything from
front end loaders to chafing dishes. Also might want to check if they'll
deliver and pick up.

Last Fall we got a group of neighbors together one Saturday, rented the plug
aerator (in Hillsborough or Chapel Hill I think - someone else handled the
rental) and each of us got to aerate our lawn for a fraction of the rental
price. The machine is heavy and b*tch to use, but does a good job.

There are three HDs in the area with tool rental - North Raleigh, Fuquay and
Durham. Not sure if they carry the aerators, but they do carry most rental
items.

The Home Depot at 9517 Strickland Rd is the only one in Raleigh (919
844-7418) that has tool rental.

There are probably some independent rental places in your area. I know in
Durham that Best Rental and Stone Brothers and Byrd have them. If you give
all your business to the big box stores you won't have a choice as to where
to shop after a while. I find the independent shops have much more
knowledgeable people working for them who are generally more than happy to
help you.

My bad. I would prefer to rent from a locally owned place, anyway, though.
Just a preference to support local businesses rather than the big chains
when I can.

I'm about 90% confident that I've rented one from Holland Rent-All in
Raleigh on Western Blvd before.

They typically have half day and full day rates on that type of equipment.

Is this a troll or are you truly clueless. Ever hear of the yellow
pages? Ever use a telephone? Sheesh.

Be sure to get good operating instructions from the rental place then.
They are more difficult to handle than a mower, but less than a
rototiller.

YOu will probably be glad you have to get the thing back in 4 hours.
They are a workout.

I also like to check around online to find out which companies other people
have used.
It is nice to exchange information with others.
I have saved myself serous money in the long run getting quotes and ideas
from others in the newsgroups.
Yellow pages don't really list prices or reliability.
Good luck with your search.
