Cheap Aerator idea

Hey guys, I'm building a new cheap way to aero rate at a good pace, this is what I've come up with. I found a pull behind aerator plus seeder combo at sears for 160. I'm going to make an L shaped bracket and bolt it onto my velkes on my walk behinds. The L bracket will have a hole on it like a tow hitch and I will pull the aerator/seeder behind me. This is just an idea so please give me your input. I don't have the money to buy a jrco aerator or walk behind aerator at the moment so this is what I've come up with. Let me know
Thanks Again Mark

Im not for shure this is going to work well especially when turning , and I don't think this will look very professional for you spend 160 may work and you still look bad to your customers or spend $80 rent a aerator from the rental shop do it right and look like a pro , me personally I would go with the second option.

Yeah that is what I was thinking, though it was just an idea

country zero turn .com they sell attachments one of wich is a aerator for the front of your mower but it is only $500 wich is cheaper than the rest out there , im not shure if it will mount to a walk behind but I would think it would work?? Maybe check out there website and ask them if it will transition over to a walk behind?? Other than that I know of no cheaper way than renting one , unless you have a ridding mower , then you can pull the pull behind units.

I hope you don't forget it is there and step off or get bounced off. You could roll up on your foot real easy or be turned into a pin cushion. In the warehouse, you get written up for pulling a tool box or pallet jack, because they roll up on feet and ankles. I posted awhile back about getting my glove caught on my aerator handle and the thing drug me several feet across the customers yard. Please think safety.
