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

Agri-Fab Aerator, 40 in. Plugger is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Missing parts but worked very good Works very well. Took a couple hours to assemble. Would have rated a 5 but two knives were missing in the box. Had to get them shipped separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lawn Aerator I placed an order on line for a lawn aerator. Received emails from tractor supply every step of my order. In about a week my aerator was in the store. The employees there very friendly and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Aerator! Great Aerator. It was easy to assemble and operate. The tines are very sharp!
Date published: 2019-07-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money Overall well built. Just used it and it worked well in general. One thing I don't like about it is that the fully raised position still has contact between the cutters and the ground. So you can't take it over rocks or a sidewalk with your tractor even in fully raised position. I have to unhook it, unload the back, and move it by hand. The position of my connection on my tractor/mower may also be affecting this. I have a 1997 Craftsman for reference. I would buy again though.

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.

How does it go across driveways?

Asked by: Afmwr1
You are able to raise and lower the aerator knives when transporting. The transport lever located in the middle of the aerator allows you to easily raise and lower the knives.

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.

My yard has a number of exposed tree roots from a large maple tree spreading out into the lawn. Is the aerator durable enough to contact the roots without damaging the tines or frame?

Asked by: Richman
Dear Richman- While towing any implement it is best to remember what you wouldn't drive your mower over you shouldn't tow the implement. If you slow down and proceed cautiously the plug aerator will work, you can always raise the knives when crossing over the large roots to save your blades. 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 CST.

Will this work on the back of an 8 N tractor? Have a large yard

Asked by: Candi
Dear Candi - Thank you for your interest in the Agri-Fab plug aerator. While your 8 N tractor is capable of towing the aerator I am not sure if the hitch plate would be too high to make this compatible. The plug aerator is designed to be towed by lawn and garden tractors at speeds of no greater than 3 MPH. If you have additional questions the Agri-Fab customer care team is available Monday - Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST at 800-448-9282.
