I took a trip to Turfco today

So today I picked up a XT5 and LS22 at Turfco in MN. While I was waiting to be loaded I was looking at the back overhang and I saw something very cool. It will change how this service will be done for years to come. The good thing is it doesn't have a steering wheel (sorry larry no frisbe while working) and it has tines.

Any guesses Larry?

Will (TURFCO) was here yesterday. I tried to pump information out of him, but you know TURFCO.......a really conservative company -- always underestimating their equipment. All he could tell me is they can't build T3000i units fast enough. If you hear anything new, please let me know. Thanks much.

p.s. You won't go wrong with the XT5.

Larry, I can say it's shorter than a regular T3000.

A little dual hydro aerator action comin eh?
Nice. And instead of Toro/Exmark farting around with theirs, just buy Turfco's and have local service

I run the XT5 and have the seeder as well. Both are solid units and make money IMO. Only thing I wish was different on the XT5 is I have the old version where the weights load in the sides of the tine cover. Yours loads in the butt end, right? That is better, mine tend to want to fall out aerating crosslope.

The weights are rearward facing. I'm sure a bungy cord could fix the side hill issue.

Ya, need to do that. Instead of just watching them fall out and cussing
