Minor changes to use use common parts from Exmark ZTRs.

Pretty much the same. Unit is a little more refined.

ExMark now has a hitch receiver mounted in the front of the riding aerator. Is that for future attachments?

Cool....thanks David!

Where is ExMark/Toro going to make the three aerators? Still in Kentucky? Or somewhere else?

It should be faster than the Lawn Solutions model. The transmission cable was not setup correctly by the local dealer.

It is desgined to be 1 mph faster than the similar LS model.

I also demoed one Fri it has 6 chains to service and how do you change the belts for the hydros under the unit? I could not get a answer from the rep. It may have been slow because the speed bar was not set forward. the foot switch was nice.
