I sent you an email last week off your contact page on your site but hadnt heard back from you.

Is it possible to put a locking caster on the z plug for better hill stability?

Could you or have you tried having 2 wheels at the front supporting the aerator for better stability.

I know I get get on some sick hills on a wright stander or bobcat Z.

I know you surf the chemical thread so thought i would try here. Hoping the mods will leave this here.

I don't see how a locking caster would help the z plug very much. Once the aerator head is down the machine is very stable on hills since most of the weight is taken off when the head is down. Not wicked steep but normal hills at least.

I think he is interested in the machine being set up as a spreader/sprayer, as well....

Sorry if we failed to get back to you. Sometimes we have noticed our contact page on our website has issues. At times we have failed to get messages, or we receive a message multiple times. Also regarding phones, we are in the middle of a office renovation and are working out of a job site trailer. We try to answer by the second ring at the latest, so we must have dropped the ball.

Regarding your question, at this time we do not plan to put the locking caster system on the Z-Plug. Given that the front frame is entirely different, it would require a different design. We are working on some alternatives, but I cannot explain at this time. You should get plenty of traction with the aerator head down with the current design.
