    Just wondering what the deal is w/ tow hitch on a lazer. Wanted to hook up a tow behind aerator and just assumed their was a tow hitch on it.....much to my suprise, none there. I'm assuming this is another extra for more $$$. Anyone have any info on this????

    Frank,

    You may want to look at some of these posts:

    These give some pretty good examples of the towing capacity of the Lazer/Lazer HP. I'm not sure I'd pull an aerator with the Z's. It really depends upon the weight and width of the aerator.

    Thanks

    I ordered the hitch for my Lazer Z HP this past week... called my dealer, he couldn't find a part # for the HP, nor could his distributor..... I got the pn from another dealer, and called him back and told him he'd better call his dist. again, because the pn is ###### (dont remember it now)
    He didn't even have it listed, or a price! Called me back a few minutes later.... it seems the distributor who didn't have a pn for an HP hitch kit, has it in stock........... go figure....... I'll have it this week.... ~$50.00

    The part is listed in my manual, but because of this site, I was SURE it was out there.

    Had the same situatuion with the Anti-Blowout baffle.... gave the dealer the part # to order, and he asked ME what it was.

    Nav,

    It's not overly surprising. It's got a lot to do with the way we price and list the accessories.

    If it were a standard part the dealer would simply look it up on one of a couple of electronic parts look ups. The accessories are listed with the complete mowers. Most parts guys never see this list, only the sales guys.

    Looks like we've got some things to work on.

    Thanks

    Terry
