    i think they are few grand. i seen a co here that hooked to their wb just a velke and then mounted a bicycle seat one the tow bar . that thing looked awesome and it worked pretty good from what i could tell.

    I have a Classen 3 point on a 15hp Mits diesel tractor. I use it for all my aeration work. It does a great job and it makes large areation jobs quite easy. The Mits is a workhorse but it doesn't have down pressure on the 3. That isn't an issue because I just load about 250# of block on it and we are good. I think I paid around 1200 for the unit 5 years ago. They also sell a wheel kit if you don't have the 3pt. Lesco sells the exact same rig but it is green. Good Luck.

    try a turfco 42 inch tow behind, its very reasonable and you tow it behind your zero turn. thats all we use on large and small jobs. not sure of productivty but it aerates a 42 inch path as fast as your mower goes , maybe 1 to 1.5 acres per hour. cost is maybe 1500 or so
