On really hard ground I don't think you'd have too much trouble, but 4000 is really more weight then you'd want on the average lawn under less than dry conditions. I know, I used to own a CUT that was ballasted to just over that weight with no FEL or other implement on it.

There are some really nice 3 pt mounted pluggers out there though. I've been looking at them to use on my CUT I have now which is just over 2000 without anything mounted on it. I like being able to raise the plugger and back into a corner etc, then drop it down and go without over aerating the area.
