    Installing Rear 48" Aerator & 3 Point Hitch

    Hi all,

    I bought a low hour x758 and it came with a rear 3 point hitch and PTO, I dont have much use for either, but I will be putting on a rear 48" Plug Aerator.....I am just wondering before it gets delivered in a few days do I need to remove the rear 3 point hitch or has anyone used it with the hitch in place?

    I didn't realize there was a 3 point hitch mounted one....is there? I thought there's only a toe behind option

    The 3ph pluggers are no good, they put the tractor in a bind when you turn.

    You don't turn with them,you lift turn and set it back down.

    This is what I'm hearing
    So the tow behind it is
    Any of you use one?

    I ended up ordering
    Front thatcher
    Rear tow behind 48 core aerator
    Tow spreader 175lb
    17p cart
    Lawn stripe kit

    Should be fun lol

    I don't use a plugger anymore, the moles do such a good job that I am forced to roll annually. If not for the moles I'd go with a tow behind.

    To answer the OP question, if you leave the 3 point arms attached, use a drawbar to pull hitch type pull behind accessories. TSC sells them.

    I have this for my X738. It works beautifully. I prefer the three point aerator over the tow behind models. Much more effective. And, with the ability to easily lift it from the seat, you can clear tree roots without damage.

    If you must use a tow behind, just hook the draw bar to the tractor. If it's a ball hitch style, I use my 2" receiver adapter on the three point. If it's a pintle hitch, just hook up to the tractor.

    FYI, I also have this - makes it really easy to attach pintles to the ball receiver.
