    The aerator is a tow behind unit. I pulled it with my Z rider.

    The Lesco tow behind does a nice job. I have a 48" that I tow behind a Hustler Z. It also can be used with a 3 point hitch. Pulls very good cores. They also make a 60" but that may be too much for a Z to pull by the time you throw weight on it.

    txlawnking - that was his SALES for the day, NOT PROFITS! SALES minus EXPENSES = PROFIT. Don't forget to deduct Gas, vehicle expense, insurance, employee wages, payroll taxes, equipment expense, equipment repair, telephone, advertising, mortgage expense.....and so on before arriving at PROFIT.

    Just making a point. Alot of people think "I made $800+ today" when they didn't really.

    You're aerating this time of the year? That's different...
