    I wish Toro/ExMark would make a 60 inch riding aerator!!!! I've got some huge yards up in Northern Illinois....and it would make my life so much easier!!!

    Toro/ExMark....if you're listening.....I would love to buy one!!!! I think you would have a market for something this big.

    I will try to call Toro/ExMark on Monday and see if they could make a 30" riding aerator and stretch it into a 60 inch riding aerator. I don't think it would be too hard and it would make my life so much easier!!!!

    Please Toro....all I want is a 60 inch riding aerator by Fall time!!!!!

    Yeah....I guess I could go that route.

    I like how My ExMark 30" Riding Aerator isn't very deep...so it saves me room on my trailer. Plus towing something behind you would have to watch out on your turns because of your length.

    If Toro/ExMark just made their current machine wider and you would have a amazing machine for large areas.

    Then I could use the 30" and 24" for small to tight areas that the 60" won't fit. But your production would increase being able to travel at 7 mph. Where the towing you couldn't....unless you had a small tractor with a 3 point hitch...but even then...it's the size on the trailer that would come back into the factor.

    Toro/ExMark....can you make me a custom 60" riding aerator???? Please!!!! I could be one of your demo people that could give you feed back on the design, function, and improvements that operators deal with everyday.

    I know other people would be interested too!!!!

    I do admit the tow behinds can be a pain on the properties we have with sprinkler systems because you are constantly double checking behind you to make sure you don't hit one. In the end, if exmark or toro made a 60" ride on aerator, I would probably end up buying one simply for the reason I stated above

    I had one customer's yard yesterday that was down by the river (Rock River) and their yard was made up of almost all hills. A few of the hills were very steep, where I could only ride down the hill with the tines down. The other part of the hill wasn't as steep where I would go back up to make a turn and hit the steep part again.

    Long story short....there is no way a tow behind aerator could do the job. That's why I'm glad Toro/ExMark made/bought their riding aerator.

    A tow behind would be great for large fields, sport fields, golf courses, etc....anywhere there is a large open area.

    But you're right Kidmows...if Toro/ExMark doesn't come out with a 60" riding aerator....I will have to resort to buying a tractor/pull behind or that gas Plugger model that has a kit that lifts the tines for My ExMark zero turn. With the engine on the tow behind aerator....and it shouldn't put too much stress on the hydro pumps on My ExMark 60" zero turn.

    I guess something is better than nothing, and if I can get a job done easier with great results....then I feel it's justifiable.
