    Anyone have a hitch on their Z450? If so...where is the best place to purchase a cheap off brand version? I'm not up for paying $60 for a small metal hitch just because it says Toro. I might just cut some steel and fab one myself. And is the part #99-8924 or #99-8925...I'm finding mixed answers from dealers. Thanks!

    I've been Ebaying like crazy and doing google searches. I just decided to go out and grab some scrap metal in my garage. All measured and cut right now. I just need to mark the bolt pattern and drill holes to mount it. It's raining out now so I'll wait to pull the mowers off the covered trailer!

    I have a few clients asking for aerating this year so I'll be pulling a plug aerator with the Z. Probably an addition 100 to 125 pounds of weight. I weight 160 so I don't think this will hurt the pumps on a flat level yards.
