Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Ideal for larger lawns, Brinly’s super wide, high-performance 48 in. Tow-Behind Plug Aerator is the tool needed to keep your lawn lush and beautiful. This heavy duty aerator features 32 heat-treated steel tines that penetrate the soil up to 3 in. depth. Each plugging spoon can be replaced individually, providing less expensive maintenance from having to replace the entire spoon shaft. Four separate welded tine sections rotate independently, even during tractor turns. And for those really compacted areas where maximum penetration is needed, an additional 200 lbs. of weight may be added to the fully enclosed steel tray. Need to cross the driveway or drive over a sidewalk. Simply use the single lever to engage the semi-pneumatic transport wheels.

  • Wide working width of 48 in.
  • Up to 3 in. penetration
  • 10.5 in. x 3.5 in. semi-pneumatic transport wheels; single lever engagement
  • All steel, 200 lb. capacity weight tray
  • Heat-treated plugging spoons for superior strength and durability
  • 16-Gauge steel tines with four welded tine sections rotate independently, achieving maximum coverage
  • Universal hitch easily attaches to most riding lawn mowers and lawn tractors

Answer: 
Without the concrete bricks it is actually really light weight. Easy to pull from my garage, from where I assembled it, to my barn to hook it up to my tractor. I definetly would say approx 50 lbs or less.

Can a 19 hp lawn mower/tractor tow this 48" plug aerator, including with weight added (as recommended to help achieve depth) and over slopey (slightly hilly) ground? Or would the 40" version work better with a 19 hp tow machine? Thank you!

Answer: 
Yes, 19HP is efficient enough to tow this 48" Plug Aerator. 19HP will tow even our "Ground Engaging" units if that's something you are interested in. If you have any questions please contact our customer service at 877-728-8224

Answer: 
No, not unless you're stack them 3 high. Get tube sand. It's not as tall and weighs 60 lbs per bag. you can easily fit three of them on there.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 121 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Aerator This is very well built, much better than any others I looked at. It is very heavy by itself without weight on it. The weight platform is plenty big compared to others. You can get as deep as you want to pull the plugs depending on the weight applied. The only thing that would be an improvement would be if it had air tires on it. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Aerator The assembly definitely took a while but wasn't that bad, I had my 3 year old help me and he thought it was fun. I had used weight lifting plates to sit in the tray and they worked perfect. I had a little under 200lbs on the tray and it pulled a good 3inch plug. The aerator itself seemed sturdy and well built and had no problem holding the weight I had in there. April 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for the job!! Took a while to assemble, and the inital parts bags did not match the instructions, but after a short pleasant phone call...the right parts were on their way. Placed about 6 cinder blocks on it and got decent penetration....More an issue w/ my soil than the machine. Grass is very happy after running this around!! April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase Have only used once but seems very sturdy and did a great job with 3 cinder blocks added. I'm happy with my purchase. I did my research on it before I bought it. It's the best rated! April 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product. Except for the somewhat tedious assembly this aerator is a great tool. I used my air wrench for assembly which greatly reduced my estimated time. It still took about three hours (with short breaks) to assemble. I pull it with my 25 horsepower lawn tractor. For ballast I used three bags of base material for brick walks which in total weighed about 160 pounds. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Aeriator Took a little bit of time to put it together, mainly because I was working by myself. All the parts were in the box, didn't have any problem with misaligned holes or difficult instructions. The only thing I'd rather have seen is pneumatic tires instead of the semi pneumatic wheels it comes with. I used mine the day I assembled it and was happy with its performance. We had rain about two days before and with minimal additional weight I was able to get 2.5" plugs with no problem. One thing to consider is if you have a lot of tight turns or obstacles that require you lifting the unit up on to its wheel you will need to get off your yard tractor to do this, if your tractor is like mine you have a dead man switch under the seat and it kills the engine ever time you get up to attended to the aeriator. If that's a problem for you, you'll want to get another unit. All said and done I'd buy this unit again. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It do what it do. Purchased online and had it shipped to home. A heavy boxed arrived in a few days and I went to work assembling. After laying everything out and familiarizing myself with the assembly instructions, I began putting it together. Instructions were straight forward and not too intimidating. Although there are many parts and seemed a tedious job it went pretty smoothly. It took me about an hour and made me love my cordless ratchet even more. Waited until the soil conditions were right and got after it. The aerator loaded with cinder blocks seemed to easily pull plugs and go about its business. A couple months have passed since I used it. Already see a benefit from use although first use was late in the grow season while things are going dormant. Should really see a difference after another use in the spring. December 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ok investment easy to assambly you really need a big lawnmower my is a 24HP and was kind of hard to pull 200 lbs weight however did a great job. December 15, 2015
