Questions & Answers

will this product work with a john deere lawn mower

Asked by: grass
Yes, it will work for a John Deere lawn mower. All of our aerators are attached using a hitch pin and clevis mechanism so that they can attach to nearly every model of lawn mower.

Customer Reviews

40 in. Tow-Behind Plug Aerator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 295.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well constructed. I used two 60 lb tube-bags... Very well constructed. I used two 60 lb tube-bags of sand for weight, and they fit perfectly inside the tray area. Engaging and disengaging the spoons was super easy with the large lever handle. Hook-up to tractor was easy, and adjusting level of tray after hook-up to tractor was straight-forward (4 nuts/bolts to loosen, adjust, and re-tighten). Set aside ~ 2 hrs to put together. It took me about 90 min. to assemble with hand tools. Also, ensure the ground is soft. I pulled the aerator at the recommended speed behind my John Deere (X300) lawn tractor, and got excellent plugs (2-3 inches). Overall, extremely happy with my purchase, and would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dethatcher Just took my brinly 40 inch out of the box and used it for the first time. My acre and a half is a monster of hills and top soil with high clay content not to mention lots of trees with the roots. The brinly is a beast hands down. Ultralight yet sturdy it ripped up my lawn and prepared it for seading like nothing you've ever seen. I set it to the lowest setting and loaded the weight tray with 50 pounds. Man it not only detached it dug furrows in my lawn like I was getting ready to plant crops. Don't bother renting a motorized dethatcher. If you have a tractor this pull behind is more than a match for the job.

This little guy did a fantastic job. I could not be happier. My only operational concern is in order to engage the wheels from the plugs you have to get off the mower to access the lever. Tough to cross pavement. As far as assembling it was a breeze right up to installing the plugs. Oh my these were tough. Be prepared to fight these to tighten them. The unit uses nylon locknuts for everything but the plugs. Those are metal locknuts and very very difficult to tighten. Overall I am very happy especially with the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality control....NOT Bought this because it is made in the USA, very disappointed in the quality control, I had to file EVERY hole for the tube assembly...three hours, now I see why HD sells them unassembled. 40" model has 24 plugging spoons and a bolt had to go through each tube assembly. The tube holes didn't align with the hole in the plate on the axle assembly. I had to rat file EVERY hole to get the bolt to pass through, and at least two had welding slag as well. It took me three hours to make the modifications! A previous reviewer stated to have a pneumatic wrench...you're going to need it on the tube assembly. I would HIGHLY recommend anti-seize on the axle assembly, as well, it's bare metal so rust is going to appear at some point, coat it well and it'll be there for your lifetime.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from decent Assembly required of course. Easy but time consuming. When weighed down the brackets to level pan don't hold the weight so it in levels. Not the biggest problem but a problem. It could also use a second hold pin for the handle. There are spots for 2 but only come with one. Can hold wheels down for transport but not up for aerating. This causes wheels to be on the ground when pulling plugs. Again not a big deal but still. Overall if you're going to aerate often but don't want to spend big money it's a good way to go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just purchased yesterday and began assembly this morning. The instructions show a center support... Just purchased yesterday and began assembly this morning. The instructions show a center support with 3 pre-drilled holes to mount it. I did not see such an item in the box nor did I see the holes drilled. I looked at the video on-line and it does not show it either. Maybe it's for the 48" model?? Finally got to attaching the tines. Every washer was missing so if I want to use this today, I'll need to run out and buy them. Overall looks a bit flimsy. Hopefully it will perform in the North Carolina clay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aerator was easy to assemble except for getting the wheel axles to point in the same direction - ... Aerator was easy to assemble except for getting the wheel axles to point in the same direction - need two people or a couple of tables to set it on to be able to move the axles without the tines hitting the ground. Worked as intended with a couple of sand bags in the tray, dug right into the ground and scooped out the holes. Make sure the small pin that secures the handle to the frame is secure; mine came off and had to use a similar size bolt to keep handle in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just assembled Bought this a couple days ago and finally had an afternoon to put it together. Directions were great. Very easy to assemble and took about an hour and a half. I used air tools for the spikes and it made it super easy. The only grip so far would be the lock to lower/raise the wheels. It makes no sense to have to unscrew it and then screw it back in place. I will be replacing this with a cotter-pin or a wire loop pin. Looking forward to putting it to use.
