    We've recently purchased a Millcreek Aerator for our Walker fleet and was curious if anyone has turned the manual Implement hitch into the electric with a linear actuator? Or if anyone has the electric hitch, could you tell me what the numbers are off the oem linear actuator?

    Thanks,

    I've heard it's not that great...but sometimes I have to try it myself. Weight is definitely important and I'm guessing around 200lbs should do it. The linear actuator I'm looking to install would serve two functions: to raise the Millcreek up and to also use the force of the mower frame to provide some downward pressure against the aerator frame. We'll see...

    Thanks,
    Steve
