    Limited Cat-1 Core Aerator Options. IE: Availability

    I bought the JD 48" Core Aerator last month and it hasn't touched my lawn yet. Good thing. The rating for weight is 275lbs working load.
    Problem being, the lift lever is bending when actuating. Someone mentioned the added ballast should be removed prior to actuation lifting/lowering.
    Given the situation, a 48"-60" 3PH Limited Cat1 / Cat1 Core Aerator is the next step. What options/ Prices are available?

    Anyone with input on specific brand, please share your input on any/all.
    So far I've found this one.

    This is the one I'm considering but haven't purchased yet. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...t-plug-aerator

    According to Northern Tool the shipping weight is 183lbs so even with a few hundred more pounds of ballast on it the X7's should be able to handle it.

    That looks to be Cat0/Cat1. And could potentially be LCat1, looking at the top link.

    You're response in the other thread, and others, is why I created this thread. And I couldn't find anything referencing core aerators in the Limited category.
    So here we are. Lets see what input we get.

    I have a 56” Landpride core aerator I use on the 3pt of my 1025r. Model is CA1556 I believe. I’d have to check what I paid for it but it was over $1000 I know that. It can be loaded with up to 400 pounds of weight.

    Yeah I haven't found much out there that are light enough to work with the X7's 450lb lift capacity. The more expensive ones are usually to heavy for the X7's and I don't really want to use my larger tractor on my lawn when its damp enough to core.

    Thanks, hadn't looked at the Land Prides, the 48 might be a good option for my X739 depending on price. Looks like its lighter than the Yard Tuff 48.

    Landpride CA15 Series 48″ Compact Tractor Core Aerator Attachment $1,195.00 +/-

    I keep going back to Tractor Supply. That looks pretty stout. Googling as we speak.

    DR has the same one listed for $699

    Hi Cutty72. I figured you'd hop on in here. Yes, the $699.00 price I was just referencing based on searching what was available. The DR is identical, more/less.
    For my use, I'd go with the 48" from TS. That type of aerator, would be a mole getter

    Na, they'll be more than 3" down...

    I'm no help otherwise for the limited. I've looked at the full size from EA, Frontier, etc. that I'm not sure a limited could lift high enough.
