    if you get a z, just have them put on the bracket for the tow behind aerator. We ordered one last year for our 48" lesco works great and stays on all year with no problems. btw, 48" is all you will be able to pull with it, we tried a 60" and as soon as the tines grabbed the machine just did a wheelie, tried filling the hopper for counter weight and the hydro motors started to whine from the load so we gave up the 60"

    I think the pg on has the ability to switch out the sulky for a hook style aerator, nothing with cores...

    Good luck.

    they say they only made 4 of the hitches for the zsprays to pull an aerator and are not making any more. We have one of them and it works great. If you are going to do this, I would order your unit with the same pumps/motors that the zplug has (upgrade over zsprays) so you can confidently work the hydros without concern. If you do that, I would imagine they might cough up a hitch. duno

    I have a z plug. All I can say that this is the only way to aerate. It's an expensive piece of equipment with all of the attachments. We have the hopper and spray system.
