Hi all -
I am looking for some opinions on an idea I am considering. I would like an aerator for x739. I have seen many commercial out fits now have their zero turn mowers w/ front mounted aerators. Many use hydraulics to force down the tines. I talked to several operators that said the concern about driving over the plugs is not an issue. That got me thinking about using the Deere front quick-attach for an aerator.
I bought a 2" sleeve that uses the quick-hitch on eBay. I also found a 2" receiver based aerator designed for being dragged behind a 4 wheeler. I was thinking about running these on the front my tractor. I understand you would have to go slow since you would unlikely get proper depth in float mode. So if I used the weight of the tractor maybe its would work. I'd love be able to get tight to the edges and in corners and clearly see my sprinkler heads. Maybe it wouldn't as these units are designed to be pulled not pushed.
What are your thoughts on this combination?
