    I bought a 60" Aera-vator and wanted to know from those who own one what HP your tractor is?

    I have a bobcat CT235 that is 35hp but is to clumsy in my 10K sq. ft. lawns.

    I was thinking of selling my kubota B1700 which is to small of an engine and upsizing to something around 25-30hp range. But was not sure if it was enough HP to run the 60" Aeravator. The brochure says 30hp+

    Has anyone run a 60" on less then 30hp?

    I ran a 60" Aera vator on a Ford 1310 -19pto HP. only problem was the weight
    was a little much to keep front end down.
