Item Information

When you aerate your lawn, you are opening up the soil surface to let grass roots get the air and moisture it needs for healthy growth. The Agri-Fab 40 in.

Best for easily compacted soil like clay, heavy-traffic areas such as playgrounds and sports fields and drought damaged lawns. Weight tray can hold up to 140 lb. allowing for increased soil penetration by the 24 aerator knives.

  • 24 galvanized knives to penetrate the soil easily
  • Flat free tires for smooth transport
  • Transport handle for easy raising and lowering of the aerator knives
  • Durable heavy-gauge steel deck and welded drawbar
  • Simple-to-use cantilever transport handle for easy raising and lowering
  • Universal hitch fits any tractor regardless of brand
  • 40 in. aeration path

will this work on a craftsman 42 inch cut zero turn

Asked by: willsldy
Dear willsldy - Thank you for your interest in the Agri-Fab plug aerator. If your zero turn mower can accept a rear hitch pin then yes the plug aerator will work. Please not with any attachments Agri-Fab recommends making wider turns and towing at a speed of no more than 3 MPH when using a zero turn mower.

I have a relatively small lawn area and nothing to tow this with. Would it be possible to attach a handle and pull this by hand?

Asked by: ttttttttttttttttt
Dear T - Agri-Fab does not make a kit to convert the plug aerator to a push unit. With the added weight needed for proper aeration this unit weighs approximately 220 pounds.
