    I'm going to purchase a 3 point aerator this season for my Kubota tractor, and was hoping for some hands on advise. It will need to be new, plug type, and at least 48" wide.

    Any information will be helpful.

    We use Ryan Tracaires. Do you have any specific questions?

    We have the Agri-Metal 48" that we use for larger open areas and a Rock Solid Plugr for smaller and fenced area. Our 3 point Agri-Metal is top qualaity and is the Ryan model.

    My most important question is; Do I need to purchase an aerator that clears the rear wheels of the tractor? I know this is big in z-turn mowers, so I wondered if the same holds true in this case....

    Next; Are pneumatic tires as good as I think they would be? It seems tires would be much better than the unit riding on the turf...

    Thanks for the reply. Apparently most on this board do smaller properties....
