    Does anyone know how effective a ZTR front aerator is compared to a walk behind style.

    I am looking to buy a aerator and it seems that the ZTR front might be a more effective option.

    I used to run a Trac-Vac brand on the front of my old Lazer. I wasn't to impressed with it. It would end up pulling the mower around. I wasn't able to keep straight lines with it. Plus the electric lift on it was very slow. It became very time consuming when in a yard with more than 3 or 4 trees. Plus it didn't seem to have very good down pressure. I haven't seen any other ones around here besides the jrco. I don't know how good those ones work, they may be better, or they may be the same. Try demoing one first. I wish we had before we flipped the bill for that Trac-Vac one.:usflag:
