About This Product

Make the most of your mower with an Agri-Fab spike aerator. Spike aerators use a series of rotating star-shaped tines that slice into the soil. This allows seed, fertilizer, water, air, light and nutrients to reach the grass roots. Aerating should be done when the lawn's moisture content is high. the 40 in. spike aerator provides up to 2.5 in. of aeration depth by adding up to 100 lbs. to the weight tray. When you aerate your lawn, you are opening up the soil surface to let grass roots get the air and moisture they need for healthy growth.

  • 40 in. weight tray
  • Additional weight up to 100 lbs. may be added to the weight tray for increased soil penetration
  • Up to 2.5 in. aeration depth
  • 10 galvanized spike disks for thorough aeration
  • Folding hitch for easy storage
  • Flat free tires roll everywhere and do not need filled
  • 3-Year Limited warranty

    Q:Can the tow behind aerator be used on an incline/decline 15%

    Answer This Question

    A:  When using the unit on a sloped lawn you should always go up and down. Never follow the contour of the ground.You want to make sure when backing up that the knives are out of the ground. You can find the operations of the unit in the manual on page 10. I would suggest looking over the operations before using the unit. Thank you.

          Functional yet plastic wheels not up for the job
          We bought this a few days ago and after just a couple of hours using it, one of the wheels started failing. The plastic spokes on the inside of one of the wheels started crumbling. Eventually the wheel started wobbling. We only used one cinder block to weight it down & it was placed in the center of the tray.

              Best investment in your yard!
              Absolutly perfect for my yard! I have a southern hard pack yard, 1 acre, that i got this for. I had to make a couple passes, but the spikes held up, nothing bent, even going over large above ground tree roots. Very sturdy, I expect to get 10+ years out of it. Local lawn service wanted the same $$ for one aeration as this thing cost. I will recommend to anyone!

              Strong, can’t wait
              It came UPS yesterday and I’ve got the parts all laid out and putting it together. It feels to be strong and I can’t wait to try it later today.

                Great equipment
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]  I was waiting for a good weather with right texture of the soil before I tried this nice 40" Agri-Fab spike Aerator. I have used it for more than a week and I am pretty impressed with its performance. The equipment was very easy to assemble and took my husband about 25 minutes to assemble from opening the box to getting it attached to riding mower. We watched some videos and followed the instructions and it was a very quick and easy installation. I like growing vegetables in my garden and this aerator has made my job so easier. I am hoping that the plant food that I use in my garden will be absorbed more sufficiently. We also used it to aerate the lawn before applying weed and feed for this year. We get a lot of weed in half an acre land. Because of deep penetration of weed and feed we are hoping to get less weed and greener lawn this year. So far, I am very pleased with this equipment for making our lawn care easy.

                  Works great on our large lawn!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Agri-Fab spike Aerator has been a wonderful addition to our lawn care and maintainence equipemnt. The equipment was very easy to assemble out of the box with the step by step instructions that were clear and understandable. The product seems to be made of quality, sturdy materials that should last. Once assembled, hooking it up to our lawn tractor was also very effortless. The aerator moved smoothly behind the lawn tractor, creating even spiking in the lawn. I did add a couple of blocks to have some additional weight, creating a deeper penetration into the soil. Overall, I’m very pleased with the performance and quality of this product.

                      I returned this item to the store. I ordered it online, it came missing wheels and I don’t know what other parts. Has to purchase a different item at a different store to get my work done in time.

                      Do not buy this!
                      I bought the Agri -Fab aerator because of the great performance reviews. the portion assembled by Agri Fab was faulty. You only notice after you put it all together and waste 1/2 a day doing so. Also the aerator came without wheels and I had to call agri fab twice to get wheels. stay away from them!
