Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good aerator works good as advertised made well pulled nice plugs
Date published: 2020-03-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite what I expected It's a bit too light weight for the intended job. We don't have an already tilled field, the ground is really hard and this did not do a consistent job of aerating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 48” Plug Aerator TOP QUALITY: Assembly was a breeze, however it does take a little time, given all the pieces(mostly the plug spikes). 1-1/2 hrs. Pulled with 22hp John Deere lawn tractor with ease. Even with additional 100lbs of weight added. Unit was heavy enough by itself, 97lbs or so. Went over 2-1/2 acres one direction, then went over the other direction. Over seeded, then fertilized. Seed and fertilizer filled holes, and under many, many plugs left. Received rain 3 days after, holes and plugs in yard have almost disappeared after 2 weeks. Absolute wonderful job.

Is the 40" going to give me a better turning radius than the 48"?

Asked by: bangathemonkey
Dear bangathemonkey - When towing any product please follow the directions in your tractor manual to ensure safety for you and the product. Wider turns are recommended so the 40-in would allow slightly better turning radius. If you have additional questions please contact the Agri-Fab customer care team at 800-448-9282 Monday - Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CDT.

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.
