    Looking at a Lesco tow behind aerator. They have a 48" and 60" both can be used with three point hitch or towed. My compact tractor may be too big or heavy for some lawns. Anyone with experience using ZTR to tow with? Concerned about strain on wheel motors and hydro pumps. Would be using hustler z 24hp honda. Did search, did not find much.

    I pull an RC4800 tow behind aerator, which is an exact copy of the Lesco. I don't have any problem pulling it using my Dixie Chopper.

    Several peope have pulled these with their Z's, and thery've had absolutely no problems. There really isn't that much resistance from these units.

    What do you have for a compact tractor? I have a small 15hp Mits diesel w/3pt and it works great with the exact aerator you are talking about. It is a Classen split tine, same as a Lesco.

    The 3 pt is great for when you come up to a sidewalk or driveway. I am in and out of properties much faster.

    I pull something way way bigger than an aerator with my lazerHP. Never had any problems.
