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 3.8 out of 5 by 159.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs The spreader/aerator is exactly what I needed and does what it says it will do. It arrived sooner than expected and was easy to assemble using a few tools and my truck tailgate to get things at a comfortable working level. Once assembled, I used it to drop-spread fall fertilizer over my 1-acre yard behind my riding mower. I have a tractor with broadcast spreader, but needed more precision to avoid getting 2,4-D on broadleaf landscaping plants. This worked perfectly. The instructions warn not to use it when the ground is too wet or too dry, so criticisms of improper penetration of the aerator tines must be coming from people who did not read this caveat. I needed no additional weight to achieve proper depth. If additional depth of aeration is needed I suggest renting a plug aerator. The only problem I found was that the drawbar pin that came with it did not have a hole to accommodate the cotter key. I called Brinly-Hardy customer service and they shipped the correct part immediately. I had it the next day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toy Internet purchase BIG MISTAKE! Assembled product in about 30 minutes. Aerator spikes are made of aluminum so after every application be prepared to straighten the teeth if you have any rocks in your yard. The application rate arm is held in place by a simple slide and tighten wing nut that doesn't hold its position so I ended up applying 100 lbs of fertilizer in 1 pass of my 1 acre lot so it now looks like a dirt race track around the outside of my yard thanks to the over application of fertilizer. The spindle attathments are made of plastic and 2 became lodged together and split apart so now I have 2 aerator teeth that will not turn. My overall review is that this is a typical product being sold to Americans today. Poor quality, poor craftsmanship, and poor dependability. Entire device is made of thin aluminum and soft brass bolts which means durability is a joke. If you need to aerator a sand box buy this. If you need to aerate a lawn rent a professional piece of equipment or put your golf spikes on and start walking.

This aerator-spreader was easy to put together and it works reasonably well, but there are two design flaws. 1: The steel paddles that churn the seed are attached to the rotating steel rod with aluminum rivets. If the seed gets at all clumped, the rivets shear off, the paddles and the chain drive jam, and the tines just drag through the soil without rotating. I drilled out the rivets and replaced them with 1/4 x 1" steel hex bolts. That's how the machine should have been designed in the first place. 2: The lever which adjusts the seed gate is attached with a hex bolt which hangs on the bolt head holding the adjustment slot to the main body of the aerator. The lever won't fit into the notch designed to keep the gates shut. I used the wing nut limiter to hold the lever in the closed position. That's no big deal, but it's a poor design that could be solved by using differently designed bolts. The rivets on the agitator, on the other hand, are inexcusable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty well... Be prepared to spend over an hour assembling the unit. Some parts should have been factory assembled to save customer time. Before you use it make sure your yard is totally free of any objects as they can and will get caught in the tines (sticks, pieces of wood, vines). When the unit is full it has enough weight to do a good job, however, as it becomes empty it needs more weight to effectively puncture the soil. This is especially true if you are working with hard soil. I had to devise a way to attach some extra weight to get good penetration of the spikes. Another small problem comes if you hit a bump. The lever that opens the drop can bounce shut. I had to tie it in the open position to avoid it closing. If you are using it on a flat, smooth, soft lawn it probably will do fine. I was using it to seed some rougher hilly areas. That said it still did a pretty good job getting seed and fertalizer to the yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time and Money Saver This aerator is easy to assemble. Parts are already separated and labeled for each step. I have 2 acres to tend to and this is really a time and money saver. I was having a lawn care service come out for the last 2 years...very expensive! The hopper for fertilizing works well. I've not used the aerator yet. I've read on other reviews that rust at the dropper holes is a problem. When I'm done for the season, I'm going to clean that area and coat lightly with vegetable cooking spray. In the spring, I'll wash it off with soapy water. I hope this will prevent the rust a bit longer. I'm so happy with this aerator I wish I had purchased it sooner. BTW, I'm a 64 year old female and did this all by myself! (insert applause here! ;) LOL )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was easy to assemble and the quality of the product... Was easy to assemble and the quality of the product was well beyond my expectations. It worked really well. I had to add weight to the unit as my lawn is mostly clay. The two concrete blocks worked just fine that I tied on the unit it gave me the extra weight that I needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only drops fertilizer when wings come around leaving a area... Only drops fertilizer when wings come around leaving a area with no seed or fertilizer. Very disappointing. It needs another set of wings or broadcasters inside to alleviate this problem.
