The Ohio Steel 42 in. Core Plug Aerator easily handles large aerating jobs at your home, farm or estate. This aerator is gentler on your lawn and more effective than standard tow-behind aerators due to the patented spring assisted design. The springs allow the plugger tines to articulate creating more defined holes and pulling out a perfect plug every time. Heavy-duty heat treated steel tines resist damage from rocks and roots providing years of worry-free use. For over 50 years Ohio Steel has manufactured high-quality, innovative tractor and ATV attachments that help get the job done faster and with less effort.

I had the same experience as others. The wheel mounting bracket must have fallen out of the box. I was told a new one would arrive in 10 days. Three weeks later it has still not arrived. It's tough to aerate when you cant raise it up on the wheels.

The aerator I ordered is missing multiple pieces. I called Ohio steel to send the missing parts. They have to cross reference the parts numbers from the parts catalogue I have because it is outdated.

Aerator is constructed well and works well. Delivered earlier than originally projected when purchased.
Looked at other aerators but liked the following features:
- Heavy duty steel construction throughout
- Pneumatic tires
- Tines are made of heavy wall pipe, not stamped galvanized steel like many other less expensive units
- Tines are spring loaded & swivel and not rigid which means they punch out a clean plug & won't tear up your lawn
- Tongue is very short and difficult to back up if/when needed in tight spots
- Tine spool spacers were missing in the bagged hardware-had to wait for replacements to be sent prior to usage
I would still recommend this aerator despite these issues because it's built in the USA, constructed well & does a great job.
