Customer Questions & Answers

will this product work with a john deere lawn mower

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, it will work for a John Deere lawn mower. All of our aerators are attached using a hitch pin and clevis mechanism so that they can attach to nearly every model of lawn mower.

Customer Reviews

40 in. Tow-Behind Plug Aerator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 262.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from missing parts/assembly nightmare I read all of the reviews and for some reason, ignored all of the reviews about missing parts and difficulty to assemble. I was missing two of the spoon plugs and a couple screws and virtually every washer that was supposed to be included. All of the nuts were as though they were one size too small for the bolts. Tightening the nuts required more work than you could imagine. Total assembly took me almost 4 hours. Heed my warning in the warnings of other reviewer's, this will be much more difficult and time-consuming to put together than you could fathom and there is a strong likelihood you will not have the needed parts in the package. The unit looks to be of good quality but I won't know for sure until the missing parts arrive in the mail.

Made in USA and the hardware it comes with is quality, not the typical Chinese stuff where the heads snap off the bolts. Assembly was moderate. It is helpful to have a power driver or air tool to attach the plug tines; lots of nuts and bolts to put together. Instructions could be better. Biggest issue is proper orientation during assembly. Seemed to work OK. Didn't produce nice plugs in my yard, however, this could be because the ground was wetter than ideal. Seems overall like a good value.

No problem assembling just a lot of bolts to tighten. My lawn has not been aerated in 25 years so it is really compacted. Put 2 concrete blocks in it and pulled 2 inch plugs then tried 3 concrete blocks and pulled 2 1/2 inch plugs. Has worked very well. Would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice Bought 5/6/17 at the Joliet, IL store. Walked out at $184 with tax. I had a perfect box obviously straight from factory with no missing parts. As others have mentioned assembly takes about 3 hrs unless your very skilled with a wrench. Instructions were clear but lots of nuts and bolts. Only thing I would like to change is the nylon 3/4" bushings on the shaft. Seem pretty flimsy to me. I might replace them with something beefier in the future. Used approx 150 lbs at first and got 3" plugs but was sinking almost to the main shaft so backed off to around 100 lbs for the perfect weight for me. Plugs were still 2-2 1/2 in. I did notice it's impossible to raise the unit because of the handle position when hooked up to my 10yr old sears Lt2000. Also hard to raise with the weight on. You need to make WIDE turns to avoid tearing the grass. In all I'm very pleased. Yery sturdy over all and should last a long time. I find it hard to believe you could do better for the reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aerator This thing worked GREAT! I definitely recommend to everyone, I had gotten estimates on having my lawn aerated and the cheapest I found was 274.00 bucks. I saved 110.00 dollars by buying this and doing it myself.... Also it was easy to put together as well. Love it! Very happy with my new toy.

This product was a pain to put together but hopefully that means it will last! I put about 100 lbs on it and felt like it did an okay job. I would like to get the full 150 to see how it does. Definitely will pay for itself after this first season. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

This product will not come with even half of the hardware needed to assemble. Not missing just one or two items but most of the hardware. It looks as though someone just grabbed a handful of hardware and threw it in a bag. No other reasonable explanation. After seeing all of the similar reviews I am baffled why Home Depot is still selling this product. After viewing reviews of this same aerator on other sites, it is a common problem with Brinly-Hardy. This was returned the next day. So much missing that I could have combined two boxes and still not been able to assemble one unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did better than I thought it would I purchased this airator thinking it wasn't going to work like I wanted it to but it surpassed my expectations. I used sand bags for weight as that is the best way to go and got at least an inch in depth of holes. I am thrilled. Putting it together was pretty easy also.
