I have always though of the attachments when buying a mower.

I think that when you buy one you should see what is available for the mower in add-ons to make you more money. Multi functional is the way to go.

My ZTR's have;

Peco Vac: for removing leaves only

Tow Aerator

Sprayer/Spreader: only on one

JRCO tine rake soon

What else do you use your mower for other than cutting grass?

Pulling a dump cart, lawn sweeper (brush type), roller, dragging things around the house, "spotting" trailers, etc. Snowplowing, light grading and leveling/smoothing. Or if you have a garden tractor, the possibilities are endless as you can get an attachment for almost anything for those.

I have a spreader and a sprayer for my F-725. I used to have a pull-behind aerator, but I didn't use it that much so I sold it and now the days that I aerate, I rent one instead.

I've got a bagger and a 48" dozer blade for my Grasshoppers. I'd like to get a 60" blade in the future.

On the Tank, I have a leaf plow, and I made a Dethatcher to be put on the mounting system for the plow. Was thinking about getting the hooker aerator, but have not heard many good thing on them. Oh almost forgot I have the vacumn system for leaves only. Its similar to the peco setup.

Hey LGF

I used one of my Toro Groundsmaster to pull my truck once when I accidently left the lights on and killed the batteries. We couldn't believe that it was that strong enough to pull and jump-start it.

I had a buddy dump a load of compost in my back yard. Used the front deck of my Walker to spread out. Work damn good until I got high centered. Had to pull out with pickup truck.....does that count???

It can count just for you.:D

I drop the deck on the Lazer to spread out mole mounds prior to aerating.

You can have the Flex-Deck Attachment if you buy a Dixie Chopper ZTR or a JD tractor, or larger frontmount, or an eXmark WB.

see our sponsor forum and web site.

Thanks, Brad

wriken, do you have a Tank? I have the MTD Pro Z and have been looking for a good Dealer in Michigan, not happy with the ones I have been to so far. Where are you located, I travel all over Michigan?

Yes I have the M-60, 2001. I pretty much have all Cub or MTD equipment. The dealer I do all my business with is located in Coleman, Mi. called Gene's Truck Sales. They got # 1 dealer for all of the Cub Comm. dealers, To be a Cub Comm dealer you have to have a certain $ amount of parts and equipment. Call them and ask for Greg at 1-800-404-1521 and tell them Bernie sent you.

Thanks, wriken I'm heading to Flint and Detroit tomorrow but will likely have a trip North in a few weeks I'll check them out.
We run a Walker GHS and the MTD for everyday use. We do some large and small residential, some ball diamonds and soccer fields. The MTD fits in good with the Walker.
