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.

Answer: 
Hi Bob,
I would always suggest that you look at the manual for the lawn tractor. There should be a part in there that talks about the tow weight.
I believe you will not have an issue with the towing for this implement but I still suggest that you review your tractor manual before hand.

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

48 in. Tow-Behind Plug Aerator is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Assembly instructions were dumbed down too much. A couple of extra lines of instruction would have been benificial. The product was damaged in shipping but was caught by he delivery service before it got to me so it was sent back before getting to my address. When my product finally arrived, it was obviously repacked in a new box but some of the parts had scuffs and one part was bent. I figured I would be using it as lawn equipment anyway so the scuffs didn't matter and a vice made quick work on straightening the bent part. The aerator worked well and is worth the money so far. I have done 8 acres of lawn between myself, family , and a neighbor with out issues. A bit of trial and error to figure out how much weight to add.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product For The Money This is a good product. I ordered it on 29 Sep 16 and received it on 5 Oct 16. It took me about three hours only because It was a little late when I started on Saturday, so I finished it up on Sunday. The instructions were pretty straight forward. Ensure that when you get to the part about leveling the tray that you use a level. I plugged my yard today 10 Oct 16 and I pulled a max length of about two inches. It rained all day on Saturday with Sunshine on Sunday and today (Monday) is when I aerated. I'm very pleased with it's operation so far. I'll need to check the bolts and screws to see if anything vibrate loose. It's a solid piece of equipment and I would highly recommend it to my friends for the price. I think you'll be pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!!
Date published: 2016-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2016-04-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT & AN HONEST REVIEW My 1 and only complaint on this aerator is the HANDLE placement... I wish I did not have to get off the mower to engage / disengage the aerator, that is why I gave (EASE OF USE) 4 out of 5 but I understand why they designed it this way as it is safer for the consumer... I had no problems in putting it together & it did not take me long at all. All parts where received and in great condition. I live in TN and I have clay soil so I found it best to use it the day after a good rain with 198 lbs (4) masonry blocks. I have over an acre of lawn and have found this model to better then comparable models & I have used 3 other aerators with poor performance or they just did not last long at all ( with clay soil ) so I returned all of them... BOTTOM LINE IS I WOULD BUY THIS MODEL AGAIN
