    I have a Textron Bob-Cat ZT and was wondering if anyone new of front mount attachments, such as aerators and dethatchers. I now that Grasshopper makes some for there line, but don't know whether things like that are close to being universal.

    I know it isn't practical, but has anyone fabricated a hitch for there ZT?

    I think with some careful, and slow steering, I could use tow-behinds. Thought I would check with the vets first though!

  2. JRCO is about all you're going to get for it.

    Walker has some also. but don't know what they all are.

    I saw a front mount core aerator, but don't remember where.

    Better off pulling an aerater so the wheel don't cover the holes you just put in the ground.

    I have a JRCO front-mounted tine dethatcher (60") mounted on the front of one of our Ferris 61" WB's. Works great in the springtime for clean-ups too. Plus what we do is run a Trac Vac Model 470 vac system on the WB at the same time. Do everything with one machine...nice and neat.

    Can email me at if you have any questions.

    One of the sponsors of this site has a front mount aerator. It looks pretty good!
