I can rent a Frontier CA1060 Aerator from a local rental place. The spec sheet states that a 30hp tractor is required. Any thoughts on trying this with my 1025R? I think if I take my time and use less than the 1000' weight capacity of the aerator, along with proper ballast on the tractor I should be OK. After all I'm not planning to use it daily, just for an afternoon (6 acres). Here is the link for the specs. http://http://www.deere.com/wps/dcom/en_US/products/equipment/frontier_implements/landscape_equipment/core_aerators/ca10_series_core_aerators/ca10_series_core_aerators.page
Thanks for your input.
