The AERA-Vator’s vibrating tines deliver results without the extra work of traditional aerification and the fractured soil creates the ideal seedbed, making this a multifunctional machine that can be used in many applications.

  • Vibrating tines loosen the soil all around and underneath each tine, fracturing the soil with 9 holes per square foot.
  • Better subsurface aeration due to total fracturing of the soil – no holes are “punched” into the surface.
  • No cores or plugs mean less post-aerification cleanup.
  • Aerating dry soil reduces the expense of pre-irrigating; in fact, the harder the soil, the better the AERA-Vator performs.
  • Swing-hitch allows easy turns while in use.
  • Bonus:  The AERA-Vator Frame can be fitted with the AERA-Vator, AERA-Slicer and Multi-tine shafts for additional versatility to manage all areas of turf maintenance.

Widths: 40”, 60” and 80” (available with or without seeder).  Seed placement can be changed from front to rear depending on application, and a ground drive allows variable ground speeds for all terrain.
