    Hi guys/gals!!! Wondering if anyone that owns a grasshopper has used/demoed an aereator attachment? Opinions on it? Thinking of getting one this fall or next year.

    Ran the 25hp kohler 60" Zrider for a while....very nice cut well....could find anything to complain about. I would have used different rear tires but the ones that came stock had vertually no problem. I have pulled many things with it including a aerator worked great.

    I demoed the 52" grasshopper for two days and really did like it. Then i demoed the 52" Exmark and fell in love with it. The exmark just seemed as if the seat was a little lower and i just felt more comfortalble on it. I am a tall guy 6'4 but by employees are both short so the adjustable seat was very nice. The Grasshopper didn't have that. i also like the pto swith and throttle being by my legs because branches on trees could no longer turn them off. Hope this helps. Bill
