    My hydros are sundstrand/hydro gearbdp-10L
    Some advice from exmark users would help me
    out.I am waiting on reply from exmark .
    I figure they will play it safe so would
    really rather have advice from daily users.
    thanks tm

    Oh, THAT! I saw this post earlier, and I wish I knew, but it's hard to tell. As I said before, I pull a 60" tow behind aerator (deep core) with my Lazer, but that doesn't seem to have much drag.

    I thouth of pushing snow with my lazers and I talked to a guy who thought I would only have to put a larger Micron filter on the hydros to compensate for the torque. You may want to also increase the gap of your spark plug to about 35 thousandths.

    I have found that with Exmark, anything short of rolling it off a cliff, they'll say it's o.k.. Afterall, they're the ones that sell hitch kits for this type of thing AND they say that running double blades will not affect the warranty in anyway. Even with the clutch.:)

    I purchased a hitch kit for my 48"lazer HP and it had a warning label not to pull anything over 80lbs. But I did. This fall I used it to pull a 48" core aereator. The drum type that is filled with water. No problems what so ever.
