    I am looking to see how much an aerator would cost to go in front of a ztr like one from Jrco or Gator Rotor. I have a Hustler Super Z I am looking to put it on.

    I looked at my dealers about a month ago and they had the Gator Rotor. Had in at that time for about 2 weeks and sold only one. Said it was about $2500.00 if I remember correctly. Said the guy that bought it loved it. It works with a electric motor that actually raises the front wheels up so the weight of the front end is applying pressure to the pluger. At the end of a run just flip the switch to raise it, turn around and flip the switch to lower it. Wouldn't be time effectant on small yards. I might seriously look at them next year myself.

    how does it work in smaller places b/c you have to always stop and lift it up and then put it back down. Do you have any pictures. I would PM but its disabled now.

    It does best on lager properties, but can be used on smaller yard. Besides my lawn I only used it two times, I got so busy with lawn cutting I didn't have time to market it. It cost $2500 new and is a very well designed. for more info go to gator-rator.com. If your serious about buying one let me know and i will demo it for you as I am looking to free up some cash right now
