Customer Questions & Answers

I have alot of dead lawn due to severe drought, would this work good to use on lawn before I spread grass seed

Asked by: Anonymous
I found that it worked best after a fairly good overnight rain. Tested it before the rain when ground was dry and it penetrated ground but not nearly enough for me.

will it handle rocks

Asked by: handy
Hi Handy, Thank you for your inquiry. If the tines hit the rocks it could cause damage. This unit would not be recommended for rocky areas. Brinly Hardy Team.

40 in. Tow-Behind Spike Aerator is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money Well, I got to use this once last year and then halfway through aerating today, the thing fell apart. The bar with the spikes came off so,, went to store and got some more 5/8th inch keys for the end of the rod and was able to get it back together again minus one spike. But, after one trip around the yard, it came apart again. To the dump this will go!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad but Bought for the price and because it was convenient at the time. Easy to put together. Wished it would hold more weight. I maxed it at the 110 lbs and had to wait for a good rain for it to penetrate good, which it did. Having said that I noticed after first use the end panels bending out which caused tine bearings to start to separate, and I had made sure everything was tight before I used it. I fabricate, repair, and build things for a living so I know all was assembled properly. I added 1 L bracket to each end, (see pic) which upon second use held everything in place nice and tight, no separation of tine bearings. The brackets mounted in the holes that I used for the strap to hold blocks the first time. The brackets I mounted as it worked out, had another hole that actually made it easier to hook straps. So with a little re-engineering, it worked fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from areator I had purchased another brand last yr, but it failed to hold up after 2trips around my 3/4acre. This model /brand is recommended in the reviews, and I see why. Its held up to multiple used ,and does the job I ask it to. The item was in stock at my local Depot store, and the price was right. The materials seem to be sturdy, and the tines are good. I'm using 2 1/2size cement blocks to weigh it down, and they fit into the tray nicely. I'm not sure of the total weight of these 2blocks, but the unit pierces the ground properly. I'd recommend this brand to my friends n neighbors, and if I needed ever to replace, i'd buy again this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from irritating purchase My husband wanted this inexspensive aerator for our yard. We had one before(we bought from lowes) it was great. Lasted us about 3 yrs.. Well worth the money but this one has been a pain. It's easy to put together IF we had all the parts for it. In all the box was missing 3 pieces and no instructions. Just looked that up online but it's been 4 days now since we bought it and we have to go back to the hardware store to see what we can find to substitute for the missing pieces. It's an 80 mile round trip for us to return it or we would.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed. I bought this on-line and did not read carefully. This is not a plug or coring aerator, just penetration only. The tines will go in 2", but you must have a lot of weight on top to achieve that depth. DO NOT BACK UP. The tongue is not strong enough and it bent the very first time. Will not be able to tell if it really works until next spring. I'm wishing I would have spent just a little more and got one that did the plugs. It is not a bad little tool, if you have a smaller yard and the price is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Spike Aerator This is a well built spike aerator. Its size makes it easy to use and store. It has more than enough room on top of the unit for two cinder blocks. There are also holes on the base to secure the blocks with rope. I am going to aerate my yard frequently now that I have this tool. Probably once a month. The assembly was was not at all difficult. My 4 year old granddaughter and I put it together in about 25 minutes. She held the base as I put it together. She was also excited to wear my leather gloves while I was attaching the blades. And now she knows what an axle and 'C' clip is. All in all, it's a nice aerator. Not as good as a plug aerator, but, for $82, I can aerate all I want!
