    I was wondering if anybody owns or has used a JRCO aerator that mounts to your ZTR mower? Is there anything else out there for us ZTR guys? I am not interested in a walk behind at this moment. any help would be great.

    There have been several reviews on it and several threads by owners on here. Bottom line....not that great. Lack of penetration and not enough holes.

    Unlike their dethatcher, I've haven't heard any great reviews either.

    Look at the tow behind aerators by Turfco at turfco.com. A few years ago we legthened the tongue of the 42 inch tow unit so it would work good behind the Z mowers. Does a great job is easy to use and pulls great cores.

    I am currently downsizing and am selling a Gator-Rator aerator and Toro Z-500 package here if interested in the used equipment marketplace. The aerator pulls great plugs, operates off of an electric screw jack I might even part with my Permagreen Ultra for the right price. Check out the link to the equipment marketplace and the pictures I have attached.
    P.S. I am in the Chicago suburbs.
