Compacted soil not only increases thatch buildup but also reduces the amount of water and nutrients your grass receives. Brinly’s 40 in. Tow-Behind Spike Aerator is the perfect tool for loosening soil and allowing your lawn to breathe. This durable, heavy-duty aerator features 11 galvanized steel stars that perforate the soil up to 2 in. deep. And because each 8 in. diameter star rotates independently and continues revolving during tractor turns, you’ll make less passes. The 14 gauge steel, 100lb. capacity weight tray allows for additional weight to be added for maximum penetration in hard soil.

  • Working width of 40 in.
  • Up to 2 in. penetration
  • 5/8 in. solid steel tine shafts
  • 14 gauge steel, 100 lb. capacity weight tray
  • 2 year warranty
  • Heavy-duty nylon spacers with mold-in tine locators for extra durability
  • Universal hitch easily attaches to riding lawn mowers and lawn tractors

Rated 4 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth the reasonable price for what you get. It's really easy to assemble if you get your son to do it. Seems to penetrate the soil well if you add several cinderblocks to the tray provided. (Need to secure blocks with bungee cords.) Hard to back up. May be the operator's fault but maybe the hitch bar is too short. It's a real pain in the neck to raise and lower the spikes on/off the ground to/from the wheels...have to get off my mower to do it. For the money I'm satisfied with this product. March 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tool for the yard This aerator is a great yard tool and has saved me a tremendous amount of time. The only drawback was that either my yard was too hard for the spikes because I had to add some weight for the spikes to go deeper than about 3/4 of an inch. Easy fix and still holds up to my rocky yard. May 12, 2006
Rated 3 out of 5 by Spend the extra money for a plug aerator!! I own Bowman Lawn Care and thought that this would be a good aerator but i was wrong! This is a nice well built product (after you spend 2 hours putting it together) but only puts small 1 inch deep slits in the ground. (I had the maximum 100 pounds of weight on it). Its not very effective at aerating. I returned this aerator and spent an extra $40 and got a plug aerator. The plug aerator actually made 3/4 inch wide, 3 inch deep holes in lawn which actually aerate the lawn and work. I would only use this for a small lawn that doesn't have that much of a aeration problem. March 25, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by works well very fast delivery. works really well, just would have liked the tines a little longer August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great value With 2 cinder blocks as ballast, the tool works perfectly behind a tractor. With hard clay soil, I recommend a good soaking a day or so prior to use. April 4, 2012
