Item Information

The Agri-Fab 48 in. Plug Aerator can remove 3/4 in. diameter by up to 3 in. long soil plugs from a lawn, in turn allowing compacted soil to loosen up, in addition to the benefits provided by a plug aerator. It is best for easily compacted soil like clay, heavy-traffic areas such as playgrounds and sports fields and drought-damaged lawns. During early spring and late summer when the ground becomes most compacted and needs to be loosened and refreshed are the best times of year to utilize a plug aerator.

  • 32 galvanized aerator knives for rustproof durability

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Aerator..... I’ve had this Agri-Aerator for a couple of weeks and like most of Agri-Fab products it didn’t disappoint. It Aerates the ground really well even on the hard packed soil.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value On the plus side, the online tutorials are very helpful, the materials are adequate, it worked as expected for aerating the soil. On the negative side, some assembly could be done in the shop before shipping. The fit on the raising bar is too close. If nuts were pre-welded to the raising bar, that would help assembly a lot. For residential use, it is adequate. For larger property, I'd recommend a commercial or stronger model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality plug aerator! I bought this about a month ago. I am a 52 year old lady and I put most of it together myself. I carefully sorted and laid out all of the parts before I started the assembly. There were no missing parts. The instructions were very easy to follow. My husband had to help with some assembly because it was a bit heavy for me. I am able to easily hook it up to my lawn tractor and use it by myself. I have aerated about three acres of land with it and it works great! I'm very pleased with the quality!

Can you turn with unit lowered or do you need to raise unit to make gentle turns. 

Asked by: BMWbiker
Dear BMWbiker - Thank you for inquiring about the Agri-Fab plug aerator for your lawn care needs. If you are in the process of aerating your lawn you can turn when the unit is engaged. The video on tractorsupply.com show the plugger in use and being towed while turning. Anytime you are transporting the aerator it is recommended you have the knives disengaged. If you have additional questions please call the Agri-Fab customer care team at 800-448-9282 Monday-Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST at 800-448-9282.
