    Pj, can you post the tow capacity of Hustler Z and bigger. Also, can you explain if this is rolling weight or tow weight. I use a tow behind aerator want to make sure I don't put to much weight on it. It is around 250 pounds now, but when penetrating 3" into the ground it has resistance that has to be factored in.

    I also have a Gator-Rator on the way. Do you see any problems using one of these.

    You should be safe with your tow behind, the key is rolling weight.
    Your unit is rated to tow 400 lbs less the weight of the operator, and this is rolling capacity, dont try moving boats or campers with heavy hitch weight.
    Not familiar with the Gator Rator or its weight, but I know lots of LCO's that have JRCO type attachments on there mowers and have not had a problem.
