aerator

May 14, 2013

from Lebanon, Tn
"Don`t expect to pull this with a lawn tractor when it is loaded with water, unless you have chains or a ATV. I used a 20 HP tractor and mine slipped all the time. The axel brackets are a poor design. A hollow tube with a grease fitting allows the grease to leak out. It should have a pillow block bearing of some kind, instead of metal to metal. With this aerator fully loaded with water these brackets are inadequate and cheap. I intend to modify mine to this extend."

Good for the lawn

By zombieprepared
from Largo, Florida
"When I first heard about aeration, I was a bit skeptical. After all, what good is just poking holes in the yard? This is one of the spike-style aerators, not a core aerator meaning it takes some of the dirt back out with it. I didn't have a trailer to pull it with, so I welded up a handle and I use this in a push capacity instead of a pull capacity (and by hand). It works pretty well. The drum itself is heavy enough to get into the dirt and make decent holes. I followed this with a good watering and some fresh grass seed and within a few weeks I had a whole new lawn. It's now luscious and green."

Spike roller

"I have a rather large yard, about 7 acres. The roller did great over the what was a hayfield and broke up the ground nicely. I will go over again in the spring a few times but initially I'm impressed with its results"

Solid Drum Aerator

,
June 3, 2010
By TheVirginian
from Southern Virginia
"Bought this thing a few weeks back. It seems very solidly built and assembly was no problem. The welds look good. The weight should break even the toughest ground. My only concern is rust, so I intend to store cover it for storage."
