    HAY! any of you experienced aerator ever tired hooking up any type of sulky to your aerator????
    It would be of no use on small lawns or wet ones but on the 10k plus ones that are wide open it would be a blessing.
    I've tired a pull behind type with my rider but you cant get enough weight on it.
    This probably would not apply to you with Blue Bird types, but I have a Billy Goat 4 wheel type.

    Does your product use the weight of the mower to sink the pluggers in? Is that why the casters on the front of the machine are in mid air?

    Cooper landscaping, yes the weight of the mower is being used the higher the wheels are raised the greater the force.

    how much for that gadget? and how fast does it raise and lower, cause it sure doesnt look like anything you're going to make any fancy turns with. i pull a drum behind my z, yea, the one you fill w/ water. holds about 100-120 lbs of water. i know that most of you dont like the drum aerators but i'm gonna tell you what- THAT is one money making machine, it has brought many thousands into my small business and all for $149. the results have always been very good :cool:
