    Has anyone used anything like this or even this particular model? I'm thinking about getting one next year.

    That is an option with the Convertible Mower that is being talked about on this site. (Walkbehind or Riding Mower)

    There is a thread about it.

    I have not used one.

    This is the Trac-Vac brand unit. Yes, there is a thread or two on this, recently.

    I recently bought a 3 point hitch aerator for my Kubota and I would never get anything else. You can aerate a 60,000 foot lawn in about an hour with zero fatigue. Last Monday I billed $1600 just in aeration.

    Hi guys, i was reading some threads yesterday and someone mentioned about Gator-Rator (http://www.gator-rator.com/) For those of us that are from SE Michigan, the place is in Canton.

    I personally dont have one, but man, it sure looks cool. It looks like a military attachment for a Hummer.Or better yet, it looks like a heavy duty tiller. Anyway, i am not sure how much it costs or anything, but i am planning on calling them, just to get some more information. I live 15 miles from Canton, i might stop by one day. It looks like it's universal, but not sure.

    Also, i dont know how the mower will handle the fact that the caster wheels will be up in the air while aerating. Isn't that too much stress on the drive sytem in the back?
