    Im having a hard time finding the connection kit to turn my Ryan core aerator from a pull behind unit to a 3pt. hitch unit to pull behind my tractor. My dealer who sold me this aerator knows nothing about this kit. But I have seen it on here from other scapers and 2-3 years ago I rented a 3pt. hitch version on my aerator. Im not sure of the model of this unit but its the really heavy pull behind unit with all the spoons are attached to the weighted metal disks.

    Does Ryan (Textron) make a 3 point attachment for that aerator? It sure seems like they would.
    Wow. After getting on their site and looking around, I see there isn't one available. There is only a whole 3 point model. Here's the page with their products (nice stuff).

    I see how the hitch on these aerators work. The bar that comes with the pull behind model gets flipped upwards and then I have to get the two side bars that attach to the 3 pt. hitch. I might just have to fab something up myself.
