WTB Gator Rator

Yes I know they don't make them anymore, but was wondering if anyone had one that they wanted to get rid of...

Here she is ... a little dusty, but the aerator is practically new, used on less than 10 lawns. The mount and wiring will need some work however, I cut it down to fit my mower, so as long as you have basic fabrication skills , or take it somewhere to mount up.... you'll be fine. It works great on open areas... I found the mower I put it on was not large enough... to have the extra weight on the front end it couldn't handle it especially if the grass was wet, it slipped all over the place( ag tires vs turf would be a help) . It would work fine on a large frame ZTR , or I'm not sure what your plans were for it but like I said it worked fine..... I've been using a bluebird walkbehind instead and it sucks but whatever!

Here is the mount.... you can see the small mower, and how I had to cut the mounting brackets to fit it on..... the main "hitch " remains untouched.
