    Picked up my new Z597 today.

    27hp DIESEL:weightlifter::weightlifter::weightlifter:
    62" Rear discharge deck.. shes a monster and i cant wait to cut with it.
    She'll be cutting 65-70 acres of parks with a bit of help from her little sister in the back ground.

    The last picture really shows the size diff between the z400 48" 19 kawi and the the new one.:weightlifter::canadaflag:

    I was offered the aerating for a few soccer fields and a couple of the parks i cut. I know this mower has the power to pull anything if i put a hitch on it but does anyone know if there is an effective tow behind aerator on the market... maybe with a ton of led or weight on it?

    I don't own a tow behind aerator, but do rent and its on the purchase list. I'm not sure what brand the tow behind I normally rent is. But throw some weight on it and it'll work good. I'd go for the jobs if I were you.

    I think Bluebird and Ryan both make engine-driven pull behind aerators, as does Plugr. I would definitely go that route vs. a lightweight ground-driven aerator.

    And that new mower is HUGE. I guess it's mostly for sport fields and parks? I can't imagine taking that on a residential lawn.

    damn what's up with the wheels and tires on the 48" toro? Looks like they're a few sizes too small.
