    Bluebird pull behind aerator. It weighs around 500 lbs with weights. Good quality.

    Lesco makes a pretty good one. Just need a couple of sand bags and go.

    I would definitely recommend an aerator from fabworks oem. They make the perfect one for your small z. It is water filled; so you can add and subtract weight as needed. Also, it has staggered tines so your z will have an easy turning it. I think they go for around 400. Call Brad, the owner and he'll give you a good deal...423-462-5815

    Looking at their website they don't have an aerator listed. Is it a custom built deal?

    No, it's not custom. He's begun selling them to distibutors mostly; but he'll have that info up soon. I'm glad I'm in good with this guy. In a week or two, he's gonna make me a custom 60" unit. I've seen and tested his 48 inch model and it worked great.

    I use, and like, my 60" Lesco. Classen is the same unit. I can put 150 lbs. on it and still pull it with my Turf Tracker (a twin to a 20 hp. Dixie). It has a split shaft so it makes turning easier.

    so how do you get it on and off the trailer? does it have wheels and some sort of lift system? is it good for small areas?
