That hitch looks dangerous... I have one that L T Rich made and its like an extension of the stand-on platform. I leave it on all year long.

I'd never use my Z-Spray as a tractor to tow anything like an aerator. I understand you gotta do what ya gotta do but I make way too much money with my machine to risk it with excessive duty.

They have machines specifically for doing larger properties. So do I.

I agree with this point seems like a lot of stress.

The hitch also acts as a wheelie bar, some getting used to stepping over it all the time. As far as extra duty, my z has a 240 pound hopper plus 17 and 7 gal tanks that's 400 plus pounds, the max is almost 700 pounds of variable load I think its fine till I buy a plugger or aeravator.
