    Mounting Aerator to 3 Point Hitch

    Hi,
    Anyone else sick and tired of getting off their hydraulic equipped garden tractor for every turn and bit of asphalt, patio etc you have to drive over to lift the aerator again....

    Well I’m trying to get ideas for mounting the Aerator to the 3PH.....any ideas or anyone out there with a bracket like the thatcher?

    I have a feldman 3Ph aerator. Works great. The only tow-behinds I would consider are the ones that let you turn. Even then, I have way too many dead-end situations.

    Yeah. Any of them with enough guts to pull a 3" plug is going to cost you. I looked for a used one for over 2 years and finally gave up and bought one. Of course, since I seen a few on CL. When you compare it to what they charge to do it, it's not such a bad deal. You can easily spend $1500 on one.

    This is a pretty good buy

    .....well about as good as it gets.
