    I am looking for a aerator and dethatcher that will work with a ztr or a atv. I currently am using ryan walk behind units,but the yards are getting to large,and I would rather ride than walk. Any ideas would be great. Of course I need commercial quality.

    From what I have read, Lesco makes a good pull behind aerator. I know Bluebird makes a pull-behind dethatcher that has it's own engine, but have only found one person here to have ever used it. They said it worked well. The Lesco aerator is made by Classen.

    The tow-behind model can drop the tow bar and be used on a 3-point hitch if needed. Weight is accomplished by filling 6, 5-gallon jugs with water, etc. All-pro design. I use mine on the 3-PH behind a JD CUT. This model also has drillable mounting plates for out-front mower mounting. Not cheap but I will vouch for the equipment and company service.
