Product Overview

Brinly’s 40 in. Tow-Behind Aerator-Spreader enables you to aerate and spread fertilizer or seed simultaneously. The aerator’s steel spikes perforate the ground while the 40 in. drop spreader puts seed, lime or fertilizer directly into the soil where it works fast and can’t wash away. This durable, hard-working tool is built tough with its heavy duty tubular steel frame and drawbars. The aerator’s galvanized 8-tine steel stars stay sharp, won’t rust and achieve a penetration depth of up to 2 in. Made from 18-Gauge all-welded steel, the 100 lb. hopper minimizes twisting and flexing. Aerate and spread in a single pass. Brinly attachments help you get more work done in less time.

Customer Questions & Answers

Does the Brinly-Hardy 40 in. Aerator spreader bury the seed or does the seed lay on top the ground surface?

Asked by: Anonymous
We went over the surface of the area we wanted to plant grass seed in with the spreader turned off and just the tines down. This grated the area before placing the grass seed down. Then we turned on the spreader. The spreader does not "bury" the grass seed, but it does spread it out nice and even over the surface. The tines do help some of it to get into the dirt, but it does not bury it.

What is the difference between this aerator and a plug aerator?

Asked by: Anonymous
Plug aerator is far superior for actually aerating. Pulling a 2" plug, not piercing the dirt is what you want. This thing barely scrapes the ground.

Manure

Would this spreader combo handle spreading horse manure on the lawn or can it only handle fine fertilizer?
Asked by: Anonymous
The material to be spread on your area must be relatively fine. Horse manure will not break up enough to pass through the unit. Dry fertilizers, dry weed control products, and dry grass will work fine. You can use large, heavy pellets. But, not manure.

This aerator-spreader was easy to put together and it works reasonably well, but there are two design flaws. 1: The steel paddles that churn the seed are attached to the rotating steel rod with aluminum rivets. If the seed gets at all clumped, the rivets shear off, the paddles and the chain drive jam, and the tines just drag through the soil without rotating. I drilled out the rivets and replaced them with 1/4 x 1" steel hex bolts. That's how the machine should have been designed in the first place. 2: The lever which adjusts the seed gate is attached with a hex bolt which hangs on the bolt head holding the adjustment slot to the main body of the aerator. The lever won't fit into the notch designed to keep the gates shut. I used the wing nut limiter to hold the lever in the closed position. That's no big deal, but it's a poor design that could be solved by using differently designed bolts. The rivets on the agitator, on the other hand, are inexcusable.

We absolutely love this attachment for our garden tractor. Very easy to assemble and easy to operate. READ and FOLLOW the instructions !! Love it so much that we are thinking of buying a second one and modifying the hopper so we can use it as a top soil spreader. Worked GREAT !!! LOVE IT !!!!

Takes awhile to assemble, had to adjust axle nut to allow wheel to turn freely. Aerator works well, pierces damp soil enough to allow fertilizer into soil. Wheel engagement lever could be longer in order to engage/disengage from seat of tractor/lawn mower.

A well made product overall, fairly easy assembly, but the chain drive cover is made out of thin plastic and within ten minutes of use, the chain jumped off the sprockets and broke the cover in three places. I'm sure the manufacturer would replace the cover under the warranty but seeing as it happened once it will very likely happen again. So I'm going to fabricate one out of 16 gauge steel instead as the rest of the item is worth the time and effort to do so in my opinion. If Brinly-Hardy provided a steel chain cover like the rest of this item is manufactured from, I would give a five star review.

This does not do what I bought it to do which is drive the seed into the ground as it is spread. Per the instructions, the ground was not too wet or too dry, when I used it to put down seed. It is not heavy enough even with the hopper full, to slice the ground. Furthermore, one of the wheels keeps falling off. It is as tight as it can be and have the wheel still turn. I was lucky and retraced my path and found the washers, but not the nut each time until I ran out of nuts, not to mention patience with this waste of over $200.00! DO NOT BUY!

And after using it, it performs as designed: "I just finished unpacking and assembling this item and wanted to say it was a true pleasure doing so. It was solidly packed for shipping and I've never had a piece of equipment go together so easy. Excellent fit of all parts, the hardware was in a unique easy-to-access package, no shrink wrap to fight, no metric sizes, SAE fittings only, and well diagramed instructions. Thank you for such a fine USA made product. I look forward to using it for many years."

Unit is sturdy, and will roll over rock with a full hopper if done slowly. Spreads fairly evenly and operation is simple. It would be nice if the controls could be more comfortably operated from the tractor seat.

Aerated about one acre and seeded at the same time. The job went very smoothly. Time will tell when the seed comes up just how well the application worked.
