Brinly’s 40 in. Tow-Behind Aerator-Spreader enables you to aerate and spread fertilizer or seed simultaneously.

The aerator’s galvanized 8-tine steel stars stay sharp, won’t rust and achieve a penetration depth of up to 2 in.

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.

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.

It came well packaged, easy to assemble and very well made. I used it to spread winter fertilizer and aerate on a 4 acre area. Worked like a charm especially with heavy duty tines. Very satisfied with this purchase !

A real design flaw or the lever was NOT properly assembled at the plant. Was not expected on a product from HD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brinly-Hardy 40 in Aerator Spreader I bought this unit late summer. Received it on time and it was all there. Installation was easy as the instructions and packaging were well done. Use the unit several times and the results were great. Needed to add a bit of weight on top of the unit to help with the Aerator function but not an issue. Recommend this unit and i will be getting the Brinly Sweeper/Thatcher unit in the spring.

Received this product with a couple of bent tines,but I kept it and put it together,then waited 2 weeks to use it. When I tried to put some seed in it wouldn't work,so I took off the sprocket and chain cover and found no chain to drive it!! Called Brinly and told them about it. I am now awaiting parts that I will have to install!!!. This is disappointing since this is made in America !!!

The spacers between the tines are plastic, connecting to the drive mechanism, 2 plastic pieces broke. Jury is still out on the spreader. I have heard you will get 90% germination from using this.

Fabricated deck to sit on top of spreader tray with brackets to hold a cement block that weights cultivator. Moisture of soil has much to do with ease of cultivator penetration. Handy lawn tool!
