    Loader mounted lawn aerator

    Trying to decide the best way to get this aerator to work.
    Picked up a pull behind unit, but with the 1026r it would have been impossible to reach the handle to raise and lower. Also turning sharp corners was going to be and issue too.
    3pt aerators were too expensive and bulky for once or twice a year use. So I decided to mount the unit to the front forks.

    All in all the idea works great. Here is a video showing it in action.



    And the result

    I give the idea and function a 9/10
    The aerator itself 7/10. But what can you expect for $130.

    That is a creative Idea. I have been looking at the 3pth unit also and just can't see the cost. Did you just run the loader in float, or with just light pressure?
    Good job Jeff

    I was running with light pressure. That way I could adjust as needed for hills and vallies. I tried float but it was just a little too much pressure.

    Great idea!! Have you thought about making your own 3pt adapter to mount on it. I made my own for my spike aerater/seeder and it works much better than trying to grab the handle all the time.

    Looks pretty cool. I think I have too much turning to do to use something like that. I would assume you have to keep it straight or it will try to bend the aerator wheels?

    Kinda nice you can see it up front easily !

    I did think about it, but unfortunately my area of expertise is wood, I don't do metal. So it would have been tough and even then i would need to add weight to the aerator to get it to sink in. With it on the front the tractor is the weight. So its easy to move and store when not needed.

    Yeah need to go straight with this set up, but it allows you to only hit an area once where a pull behind you might end up 2 or 3 times. Also makes it super easy to get into the corners and right up to trees and walkways.
