larger pulley on tranny

so i just recently inherited a yard machines (POS) tractor w/ a 16.5 hp briggs. its free and the hours are low. my grandpa bought it and used it like twice, he thought it was too fast.
i want to pull an aerator behind it, but i want to maximize my power to pull the thing. it has 7 speeds which i dont need, so i was wondering if i could put a larger pulley on the transmission from the drive belt as a gear reduction type of thing. would this work? would it give me more torque? more pulling power?
