    Has anyone used the Trac Vac front mount aerator? This unit is mounted on the front of a ZTR, and has a hydro system to raise and lower the aerator when needed.

    Any opinions, thanks.

    What mower do you have your trac vac mounted on? Do you have to add weight in order to get the plugs deep enough? Anyone ever mounted one on the front of a 48inch hydo walk behind, such as an Exmark Turf Tracerhp. thanks

    I don't think that's going to work for you dude. There won't be enough weight with a walk behind deck to get good plugs, and if you weigh the deck or aerator down it will be front heavy and you will be spinning rear tires on all turns when the aerator is in the up position.
