Product Overview

Compacted soil not only increases thatch buildup but also reduces the amount of water and nutrients your grass receives. Brinly’s 40 in. Tow-Behind Spike Aerator is the perfect tool for loosening soil and allowing your lawn to breathe. This durable, heavy duty aerator features 11 galvanized steel stars that perforate the soil up to 2 in. deep. And because each 8 in. Dia star rotates independently and continues revolving during tractor turns, you’ll make less passes. The 14-Gauge steel, 150 lb. capacity weight tray allows for additional weight to be added for maximum penetration in hard soil.

How much gap between top of spike to bottom of weight tray in inches ? Asking because I have a co...

Asked by kkm June 16, 2020
2
Answers

The distance from the center line of the shaft to the bottom of the tray is about 6 to 6 1/4". The diameter of the spikes is about 7 1/2". The spikes did not penetrate in my lawn, even fully loaded with weights and after a soaking rain.. Also, turning while still on the lawn tended to tear things up. Need to make turns off the lawn. dsc

If you have this type aerator would you ever need a plug type aerator?

Asked by mikew777 September 9, 2019
2
Answers

The Spike Aerator perforates the soil up to 2″ deep so seed, fertilizer, and water reach your lawn’s root system. As for the Plug Aerator it will pull 3″ soil plugs from the lawn, decompressing the soil and allowing water, seed, and fertilizer to reach the root system. Unless you need loosening of the soil, you wouldn't need a plug type if you have the spike aerator.

Hello, some Home Depot locations do offer assembly. I would reach out to your local Home Depot to see if they offer that.

Are the wheels supposed to freely rotate or are they stationary?

I ran into this same problem at first and had just made the nut and bolt through the wheel too tight. Loosen it up a bit and the wheel should spin free.

Can I replace the spikes for the plugs? If so, what's the part number for the plugs that will fit...

Asked by Cadmin March 14, 2019

Answer

You could replace the spikes with plugs but you would have to buy all of the parts including the axles and bushings for the whole assembly. The cost would be $120.34 to replace them. There website has a list of the parts it would take to do the switch and the price of them. It's up to you if it's worth it or better to just buy a new aerator.

Would this break up horse manure

Asked by Sharon December 30, 2018
4
Answers

While I have not tried it on horse manure, I am sure it would. Might take several passes, but it would cut through road apples no problem. Keep in mind that it is an areator designed to poke holes in sod, which it does quite well. If you have a lot of manure you might be better off with a disk harrow, which is designed to shallow cut and mix soil.

Answers

as long as you have a hitch bar on the back it should pull it fine.

Can you use this as a dethatcher by adjusting the spike depth or is it preset to penetrate the soil?

Asked by yardnut April 23, 2018

Answers

A dethatcher and an aerator are two separate animals. This will not work as a dethatcher no matter how you adjust the spike depth.

Yard was in neglect for years, small yard, frony and rear. I have COPD so cant push mower anymore, having bought tracter enabled me to buy and use aerater. Did 50x50 front yard for 2 hours, fertilizer and limed it. After 3 weeks yard looks better than it ever has and have not overseeded it yet. Planning to overseed and aerate same way again. When turning around towed it swlowly over concrete and blacktop with no damage to hard surfaces or the tool. Very difficult,impossible to back it up. It turns out one way or the other. Tried many times, not saying I wont continue to try I am very satisfied

It's really easy to assemble if you get your son to do it. Seems to penetrate the soil well if you add several cinderblocks to the tray provided. (Need to secure blocks with bungee cords.) Hard to back up. May be the operator's fault but maybe the hitch bar is too short. It's a real pain in the neck to raise and lower the spikes on/off the ground to/from the wheels...have to get off my mower to do it. For the money I'm satisfied with this product.

Assembly was not necessarily easy. Also, handle needs a stop when wheels are in the up position also. It can rotate forward to the point where the nuts holding the wheel on will contact the frame and be unscrewed. A short piece of bailing wire solved the problem. The tines penetrate the ground well and the grass is undisturbed.
