A rear toolholder does eliminate the tire tracks, leaving only your footprints behind. Most of my gardening is done with a 5000 series, and the Gravely rear toolholder is not designed to fit. But a mounting bracket can be fabricated to attach to the 5000/Pro series rear hitch such that a toolholder bolts on backwards. I have one that I made (don't think there are any pictures, so I will have to shoot one). Unless you use the gauge wheels, the front needs significant counterweight.
