There are no personal lawn aerator machines on the market that are any decent. Lawns should be aerated 1-2 times a year and the cost to rent a unit is approx $100 (so $200 every year) I believe ego could use the snowblower platform with its rotating blade for snow removal as the rotating tines for core aeration. The final piece to the puzzle would be the weight of the unit ( must be heavy enough to pierce the tines into the ground and pull out cores) could add a water tank to the unit and the customer could add water before using it to achieve the added weight needed. Then when finished pull the drain plug and the water would empty for lighter weight storage. If the cost of the unit was $500 or so... it would be the approx cost of 2.5 years of renting a machine. Just my 2 cents

Interesting idea... and you could do your neighbor's lawns to shorten the payback even further!
