A professional lawn care company charges a lot to aerate your lawn and you don’t want to spend that kind of money.
You know your ground has to be opened up to keep your lawn looking shapely.
You want a tool that can do the job well, so what can you do?
The Agri-Fab 45-0299 48-Inch Tow Plug Aerator is well liked among consumers because of the good job that it does.
Since it goes on to the back of a tractor, the job gets finished faster, too.
There are eight blades or knives that are specially coated to make them tough and keep them free from rust.
The two 10" x 4" pneumatic tires move the aerator easily along behind your tractor.
When you come to an area that you need to go over with the blades in the up position, all you have to do is use the cantilever to lift them up.
These blades have the ability to aerate your lawn to a depth of 3”, which will allow your lawn to get the oxygen and nutrients all the way down to the root system.
For severely compacted lawns, you’ll want to water them down about an hour before you plan to use the aerator.
If your grass is in need of mowing, you’ll want to do that before you use this tool.
You’ll get better results if the grass is at a good level.
Use the tool at a slow speed. As you move forward with the tool, the points will penetrate the ground. If you go too fast, you can churn up your lawn.
You want to use the aerator the same way that you would mow your lawn. Go in one direction.
But just so you don’t miss any areas, you’ll want to go over the lawn with at least two passes.
Be very careful that you don’t allow the blades to strike your driveway, walks or any other solid object.
The blades are very sharp and cause damage. But they can also be damaged if they hit concrete.
If you want the blades to dig deeper into the lawn, you can put weight on the back of the tool.
It's designed to hold up to 175 pounds of weight on the back. What some people do is take heavy concrete blocks and strap them onto the back of the tool.
This way, your ground gets optimal penetration. This aerator is for use with small lawns as well as lawns that have a several acres.
There’s not a lot of maintenance with the tool, but you will need to sharpen the blades to keep them in good shape.
Clean any accumulated debris from the blades and store the tool so that it’s protected from weather related damage.
