    Has anyone used the JRCO hooker/aerator or the tine dethatcher on their zero turn mower? I am considering buying these attachments but would like to hear the pro's and con's before I make the plunge. Any advice is appreciated.

    I own the JRCO tine rake dethatcher, it's one of the best investments that I made. It paid for itself within half a day of work. I wouldn't use anything else, makes quick work of a mild dethatching job.

    I haven't used the hook aerator yet, but it looks like it works well. I may consider buying one next season if I start to get more phone calls for aerating.

    Thanks mowerbrad. I was hoping to hear that. Seems like it would work well. The aerator is a possibility for the future myself, depending on the demand.

    I have been thinking about buying one for my 36'' metro along with the tub thingy for mulch and what not.

    The aerator is about 2k.

    Yeah it is kind of pricey. I think I will stick with renting one until I get quite a few more jobs.

    The JRCO dethatcher is a great tool for those spring cleanups. Use them on my Wright Standers.
