    i can't imagine the aggressive tires are going to be too good on the turf....but, that's coming from someone who has never done an aeration before.

    lol, guys i have a lawn tractor i usually use but if i`m going to be aerating a few acres i think this will be fine. and it doesn`t tear the soil up unless turning a tight circle in 4x4. which i never have to put it in 4x4. My zoysia looks fine after it I did it!

    A Kodiak 450 slinging 29.5 Oulaws eh? I love and snorkel setup and those blue MSA's you've go there too! My grizz rips up the grass in 2WD running any tight turn.

    thanks guys. I also have a 2005 Toro 36" walk behind floating deck gear driven which takes care of the lawn mowing. and a few other tools of the trade.

    SmokeyBacon: Yes it slings these 29.5`s. Ive had 31x9 outlaws all the way around back in the day, then 30" silverbacks. I love the outlaws. I`ve had plenty of sets. If your on highlifter forum i used to be pretty known on there. GrizzlyChase450. Same on youtube.

    I did that this year (almost out of desperation, being so far behind with the extra rain) It worked well on large properties but it's horrible on it tight places, as you can imagine. I won't do it again (ever) I'm thinking about the lawn solutions ride on. (thinking only,lol). But i hope it works well for you. trying to back up with that think while the cores are down is rough.
