    If you want seed attachemnts or what ever kind of attachment imagineable go to JRCO and attach it to the front of the LS. I would think the #1 primary reason you want to attach something to an riding aerator is to do aerating so the attachment would be secondary - I have used both machines and the ease of use, quality of plug, foot print on trailer and technology involved the LS is far better. No if you want to spray or spread chemicals for sure get the Z Spray but the LS has it BIG TIME over the Z Plug for aeration.

    James,
    That's a much better response. Do you think, looking @ your LS rider, that a spreader, seeder, or aeravator tines could be added to it? Thanks.

    Most anything JRCO has could be added - to the front castor wheels of the LS aerator - JRCO has a bar that mounts across it and you can then hook up lots of different attachments. The LS ride on aerator is the BOSS of aeration no other can really even compare - for pure aeration. The unit can pull 5 inch cores or half inch ones whatever you set it at. The tines go up and down in 1 second for turning and the turn radius is very tight will go around just about any tree - no problem. I don't know of the down force but it is over 1000 pounds way more than the Z plug.

    Question though why would you want to add more aeration tines on a ride on aerator?? The slit seeder add on with the z plug is an, either/or attachment. You can't have the aerator and slit seeder on at the same time. Actually most of the options are either/or.
    For slit seeding you should have a dedicated unit like the Turf Revitilizer (gets through most gates - if you want something for large acreage get a 30 inch Turf Revitilizer and for acres use a Landpride or seedovator (First Products). Seeding out front of aerators gives you crappy germination rates anyways. We have had good success aerationg then following it with a Turf Revitilizer seeding. The power seeder (TR) slits the seed in the soil and pulverizes the cores. Great for uneven and or clumpy patched properties.

    Kevin,

    I can't keep telling people on lawnsite what is coming down the pipe before our dealers and distributors. They get pissed because they are the last to know. I sent you a video link that will answer your question.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Yes, many new products are coming out very soon. Some unexpected ones as well.

    Your website needs some updating to say the least. So to leak some stuff here I would think is in your best interests. Dealers may get upset but when I called the place selling them in mn you got the run around and I knew more about the product then them.

    Any info on the sprayer and spreader? I was planning on making a spray/spreader unit to go on my vride but this may sway some money another direction.
