Questions & Answers

Does the Brinly-Hardy 40 in. Aerator spreader bury the seed or does the seed lay on top the ground surface?

Asked by: Sher
We went over the surface of the area we wanted to plant grass seed in with the spreader turned off and just the tines down. This grated the area before placing the grass seed down. Then we turned on the spreader. The spreader does not "bury" the grass seed, but it does spread it out nice and even over the surface. The tines do help some of it to get into the dirt, but it does not bury it.

Noted one of the reviews said the tines were made of aluminum,,,product description says they are galvanized steel. What did I miss?

Asked by: SFentner
They are steel, aluminum would roll up like walnut after hitting roots and rocks. Seem a little bright for galvanized. Maybe galvanized and plated, but they are steel and mine shows no sign of rust or discoloration. This works very well.

What is the difference between this aerator and a plug aerator?

Asked by: Lawn Guy
Plug aerator is far superior for actually aerating. Pulling a 2" plug, not piercing the dirt is what you want. This thing barely scrapes the ground.

Manure

Would this spreader combo handle spreading horse manure on the lawn or can it only handle fine fertilizer?
Asked by: GeeZer
The material to be spread on your area must be relatively fine. Horse manure will not break up enough to pass through the unit. Dry fertilizers, dry weed control products, and dry grass will work fine. You can use large, heavy pellets. But, not manure.

Customer Reviews

40 in. Tow-Behind Combination Aerator-Spreader is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 165.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good unit I bought this a month ago. Read all the reviews, so knew exactly what this thing could and couldn’t do. For instance, penetration of the spikes is not very deep, despite doing this after a few days of rain, the soil where I live is so hard (clay), that you get limited penetration. Even with adding cement blocks on top of the unit, full of fertilizer. But I already had a feeling that would be the case, so however deep the holes ended up being, that’s good enough. With regards to the spreading of fertilizer, again this is a good unit that does the job. I was able to do my 3/4 acre lot in about an hour. The spread seems to be pretty even, a few weeks after, I don’t see any evidence of over or under fertilizing. Assembly was also very easy, took all of 20 minutes to put together. Instructions are great, but the star of the process is how the company took the time to separate all the nuts and bolts and group them to match the assembly steps. Genius! I wish I’d taken a picture before being done, as it made the process so much easier. Good work there guys! Looking forward to the spring to use it again. Would recommend this, with the caveat that this will not do as good a job as a plug removing aerator of course. But if you manage your expectations, you’ll be happy with this.

Was missing several parts when assembled, but the company did get those to me a few days later. It then worked for about an hour before the flap that cycles the seed stopped turning and now it won’t drop seed.
