I am faced with a growing number of aeration jobs each year. Waking behind a LA IV gwts old quick. I quiclky browsed the Lesco pull behind unit, and from an initial look, and favorable comments on here, I am leaning twords purchase. My problem is that I don't have anything to pull it with. I was thinking of getting a used homeowner lawn tractor to pull it with. This would be the only use for the tractor, a month or two of use per year. I don't need a cutting deck, snowplow, just a hitch. I was wondering if anyone out there had any idea of what size tractor I would need, in terms of HP? I don't want to buy anything too small. I would love the 3 point lift on the tractor, and certinly any treactor having such mechanism would have capible power to pull the plugger, but those tractors are far and few between, and generally high dollar. Is the manual lift on the plugger easy to reach from the operators position?
