    I guess this is fairly new, didn't see it last time I visited thier site.

    It's a front mount aerator that fits on ztr's. Kind of like Gator Rator's but not as pretty! :D

    It's available in 36" and 48" widths (I think Gator Rator is only like 32"?).
    However, it says it only pulls cores up to 2.5". (Gator Rator says 3.75"!).

    Don't know the price, but thought some here might find it interesting.

    $1499. Saw one today when I picked up my new lazer.

    Not as impressive as the Gator Rator. But, It's also alot cheaper?

    One thing's for sure, it sure isn't built like the Gator. It's built closer to to all their other home-owner calibur products. Although, their pull behinds DO look like they may be built a bit better than they used to be. I have a sneakin' hunch that we'll be seeing more of these type machines in the future from such companies as Ryan(Textron), Bluebird, and Classen.
    It's all in the actuator part. That's where the real detail is put - the ability to hold up the weight, evenly, and withstand the force.
