    saw an ad in turf magazine for this. It appears to be somewhat like previous attempts at a front mounted aerator for ZTRs, but with core tines. Says you can aerate while turning. Made by Uteco. Sorry, no pic. Zero internet presence I could find, which isn't promising for it being a product you can be sure will be supported in years to come.

    does anyone else wonder why there are so few offerings of front mounted aerators? what do we have trac vac and jrco(which is not a true core aerator{costs way too much anyway}) I think they are a great idea; I cant believe there arent dozens of companies making these things

    plug-r also know as rock solid makes a front mount aerator. it's pricy but is very nice. it is cam driven a true core aerator not like a drum aerater. they also make a pull behind model and a walk behind model that i own.

    I don't think rock solid is in business anymore. Plugr is made by source1. Thats kind of what I'm getting at the rock solid front mount is gone, the gator rator is gone, you would think these companies would be thriving!

    I think that Plugr makes a front mount used on Walker mowers. It may be used on others also I don't know.

    ohh, I was referring to units that would fit mid mounts, I don't have/need a walker.

    Yeah, great thinking on this "zraetor's" part to have a website or ANY type of info at all on it...Marketing at it's best. If they are engineering, manufacturing, producing, and puttingthese things out in the field,...they couldn't go as far as to even make a website? Even a cheesy little one for a temporary would suffice for now...They could've put something on FACEbook and been a whole lot farther ahead than wha they are now!
