About This Product

Brinly's 40 in. tow-behind Aerator-Spreader combination attachment allows you to simultaneously aerate and spread granular materials. The heavy-duty spike aerator perforates the ground while the steel drop spreader drops seed, lime or fertilizer directly into the soil where it works fast and won't wash away. This hard-working tool is built tough with durable tubular steel framing and drawbars. The 100 lbs. capacity hopper is made from 18-Gauge all-welded steel to minimize twisting and flexing when loaded. And the aerator's 8 in. galvanized steel tine stars stay sharp, won't rust and penetrate up to 2 in. to allow air to reach the root system.

Highlights

  • 2-in-1 design: Combo aerator spreader drops seed, fertilizer or lime while you aerate to expedite project time and ensure material enters the soil.
  • NEW 3-D Tines for 2X the Strength: Brinly's Patent-Pending 3-D tines in galvanized steel inhibit rust and resist bending, even in compacted soil
  • All Steel Hopper: With a 100 lb. (1.74 cu. ft.) capacity, the durable steel hopper prevents twisting and flexing for long-lasting durability.
  • Encourage healthy growth: Featuring 132 tine tips, the 8" diameter steel stars perforate the soil up to 2″ deep providing access for air, water, and nutrients to root system.
  • Calibrated flow control: The flow control feature includes an adjustable stop to ensure accurate spread patterns with minimal waste.
  • Transport Mode: Use the single lever to engage the 10" pneumatic transport wheels to cross driveways and sidewalks with ease
  • Heavy Tubular Design: The metal tow tube design and solid tine shaft ensures maximum dependability.
  • Heavy-Duty Nylon Spacers: The heavy-duty spacers provide maximum strength and dependability.
  • 30 Minute Assembly: Assembles in under a half hour. A single, heavy-duty universal Hitch Pin is included to easily attach to any rider or tractor and most any ZTR or ATV.

      Q:Will this work on steep inclines? My yard is very hilly. Have others experienced any tipping?
      by|Jun 24, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Vince, thank you for your question. Slow and Steady is the best practice on hills and inclines. Towing the Aerator/Spreader at speeds that do not exceed 3 mph is also best. We want you to be safe and to protect your equipment, trust your judgement. If you would like to discuss the operation of you AS2-BH-G further, please reach out to our Customer Service Team at 877-728-8224. Vince, you may also contact us by email at; customerservice@brinly.com.

        Nice unit
        The directions to assemble are very good, all parts are organized well, directions are clear. Unit works well, but as other, those have said the lever to control the amount of product being dropped does not stay in place. I use some bungee cords. Overall, it worked great and it seems very durable.

          3/27/24 I purchased a Brinly aerator spreader (AS2-40BH-G) from Home Depot. The package showed signs of shipping damage and the shield covering the drive chain was cracked. The assembly was straight forward however the draw bars required clamping pressure to align. It performer OK with 80 pounds of product in the hopper but the selector lever was loose and as the load was distributed the wheel locking lever disengaged dropping the wheels to the ground. Overall the spreader is OK and I bought it after reading the company history. The included warranty reregistration card with a section entitled “What is the primary reason for purchasing this attachment ?” One of the selection options was “ Made in the USA”. I thought it was a product made in the USA until I saw “made in Vietnam” clearly written on the packing and on the spreader. The enclosed information stated the product was not returnable to the store, must be returned in the original packaging, and could not have been assembled or used. I suppose you can open the box and inspect the parts, but if you assemble it, it’s yours !

          Awesome Product!!!
          The 40" tow behind aerator/ spreader works great. Good build quality, and works as advertised. Now i can aerate and spread seed/fertilizer at one time . Great addition to my tractor attachments.

          False advertising?
          Purchased this unit today and got it home to unbox. The very first thing I noticed is that it’s not like the picture on the box. The box shows and says extra wide 10 inch pneumatic wheels. I don’t personally feel that 2.5 inches is exactly extra wide. They look nothing like the box at all. These are one piece wheels and the ones in the picture are wide and bolt together. It also says they are 10 inch. I guess 9.25 is close enough to get them to swell if you air them up tight.

            exceeded expectations
            This aerator/spreader is really solidly built. Assembly instructions are very clear, step by step. I had no problem assembling this. Took a solid hour and a half but i just took my time and went step by step. Not sure if the instructions tell you this, but you definitely need a few items to accomplish the assembly: 1. A box cutter (helps to get the hardware out of the shrink wrap packet). 2. A socket set and a wrench. (Absolutely essential to apply counter pressure while installing nuts and bolts. There was no way i couldve assembled this with just my hands. Otherwise assembly was a breeze. Because my yard has areas that we very compact, i chose to aerate pretty heavily before seeding. I recommend purchasing the weight tray to help aerate deeper. Will be ordering one shortly. After that i filled the hopper with my seed and off i went, seeding like a maniac!! So we shall see in 5-10 days if/when my seed germinates how well i did. Otherwise a pretty solid product. I have close to an acre. I overseeded with GCI TTTF and the manual tells you how to adjust the spreader for what it is your spreading (grass seed, fertilizer etc…highly recommend this product

              Everything and more
              Everything I expected and wanted for my new yard. Was easy to assemble and is great for seeding or fertilizing. Let's just say my 2.5 acres is doing well

              Poorly designed dropper
              Mostly well built. Disappointed with the wheel assembly initially. Wheels should be fitted on axles, not just a 1/2 inch bolt that's too small in diameter. Not sure how long that will last. The biggest disappointment is the poorly designed dropper shutoff. Works ok for seed but there's such a large gap even when completely closed, the small granules of Weed and Feed just drop through it. If you've used Weed and Feed you know not to let a heavy deposit fall or you'll kill grass.

                Not very durable
                Back to the store it goes.It was easy to assemble, directions well written.I used it one time, on about 2.5 acres. at first, I was fairly impressed as it did a very good job dropping the fertilizer and the spread was uniform.after I completed my yard, I noticed one of the tines had a wobble as the plastic hub was no longer snug against it. Further inspection may have fevealed an assembly issue that led to the failure. one of the hubs had worn down from the friction against the bearing plate. there was no washer on that hub, but the adjacent one had three washers on it. assembly flaw or design flaw, either way, i wouldn't consider this a very durable product.see pics that illustrate what I'm talking about.

                  Stop - Do Not Buy Agri Fab - Buy this!
                  I have 5.5 acres with 3.5 being lawn. Last May I purchased the Agri Fab spike/dropper. It took 3 hours to assemble with confusing instructions and the hardware was very sub par. The fertilizer drop gate never aligned straight from left to right and the whole metal assembly just seemed lacking. Jump forward to this May and the whole chain assembly and spreader turning rod rusted solid. Was in a shed and under cover the entire time. Took to the dump. Assembled the the Brinly today. Far superior, powder coated, inflated tires, less than an hour to assemble and all hardware 1st rate. Only wish the hopper was larger but very satisfied.

                    Great little machine. Once you get it figured out and dialed in it seems to work well. I haven't seen the results just yet from the planting but I think it will work out well. Just make sure you read the directions as the soil needs to be slightly wet but not too wet when you begin the application. Some people mentioned bending of the spikes but I didn't have any issues and I feel like my yard has a fair amount of rocks. Also, this is a big machine. You can cover the yard quickly due to the width of the machine. All in all its great and worked well behind my tractor.
