Has anyone had any experience they can share using a 4 wheeler as a lawn spreader-sprayer and attaching an aerator on a 3 point hitch system with hydraulic or electric lift. I am thinking of using a Honda Rubicon, but would appreciate any input, or tell me if this is a bad idea....thanks

I used a Lesco tow behind aerator on my Artic Cat 500. I use the tow behind on the wide open larger properties, and the smaller ryan to cut out the tight spots. I had a special hitch welded on my atv that workslike a u-joint knuckle ,helps alot on uneven turf. I had to put a set of cheap less agressive treads on it, as it will bind when turning tight. My kabota had problems last fall & the atv worked well as a back up. The only down side is the wheel base is short and like when you have rider on back the steering will get a little tricky.
