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

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 115 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value for this well-built and sturdy aerator. I did my lawn (1 acre) in less than 2 hours, which paid for itself already. Excellent product and very easy to move around. November 14, 2012
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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good aerator I bought this one because of all the positive reviews. About 2 hours to asemble. Tried it a day after a soaking rain. It worked great. Just add some weight to it and does what it's made for. November 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by After 1 acre use Assembly is simple but tines are bolted on one a time so plan to spending some time during assembly. This negative becomes an advantage if the tine is broken and needs replacement since they can be replaced easily and cheaply when compared to welded units. My lawn tractor w/22HP easily pulled the unit and plugs were a consistent 21/2 inches in fairly dry soil using 3 concrete blocks for weight. The product has my recommendation for other than commercial use. October 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Product Product was pretty easy to assemble. You'll need a 10inch wrench and socket / rachet wrench to complete assembly. Plugs pulled are decent size, not as wide in diameter as a gas machine aerator. I did need three cinder blocks to pull out the 2 1/2 inch plug. Product should last 10 years. I own over acre of land i used the product on. October 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 March 3, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does a good job but make sure you have the right tractor I just got mine this week. Took about 2 hours to put it together. Make sure you place the tines assembly on the rod exactly as it states in the directions or they will hit the center divider or two of the tine wheels will be too close together and tear up your lawn. It's a well made piece of equipment and even with 250 pounds of sand (bags) it's easy to engage from working mode to transport mode. One word of caution is you should measure your tractor hitch height. I have a newer Ariens and the hitch sits low so the aerator slants forward a bit and may be causing some tearing of the grass - which does not bother me since I am seeding anyway. September 4, 2014
