    I know I have seen someone post that they do this. What type of aerator can you pull? My Turfco does fine but for big jobs I usually rent a 36 inch tow behind and use my buddy's four wheeler. I really don't want a z plug and am not ready to spend 9k for a ride on so I thought maybe the max would be heavy duty enough to pull an aerator once in a while. Any thoughts?

    If you really weight it down to pull a good plug....I'm leaning towards NO

    Yes, I do 50-75 aerations a year with my max and a 48" tow behind, throw a 50lb bag of seed on it if I need a little weight. LT Rich fabbed the hitch I use.

    I am leaning towards the lt rich machines more and more. I need equipment that does more than one thing. Thanks.
