First off, does anyone have any experience with the Ryan 3 Pt Lawnaire aerators? Saw one on FB not too far away. It’s a 48 inch model barely used. I know Ryan makes quality products, but can seem to find much about this particular one Lawnaire 3-Point Hitch Aerator | RYAN Turf Renovation Equipment

Secondly, do you think my 1025R could lift it at the 3 pt? The spec sheet says it weighs 710 lbs. Even with my FEL, do you think it’s too much weight?

I'm interested in hearing others opinion as to whether or not the 1025r can handle that unit and lift it off the ground.

As much as I'd like to use the 3pt unit the tow behind unit they make looks pretty nice as well with electric lift. If it was 48" I'd probably pull the trigger this year, the fact it's only a 36" turns me off.

Aerated my 2+ acres today using my Ryan Lawnaire 3pt Core Aerator. What a nice piece of equipment! My 1025 had no issues with this 710lb beast. Pulled nice 3-4 inch plugs. Used my HH front bracket with (8) 41lb suitcase weights. It was adequate, although I could have used an extra 50-80lbs up front. After using a 3pt plugger, I can’t imagine ever using a walk-behind again.
