This unit is made in Indiana, and was originally designed to be towed behind a lawn tractor or ATV. We have adapted it to tow behind a walk-behind tractor (pictured with Grillo model G110). It features 24 heat-treated “spikes”, which penetrate up to 3” deep, pulling out “plugs” to provide aeration and better water penetration for your lawn.
Working width is 40”; Maximum coring depth 3”. The tray on top is made to accept cement blocks (as in pictures) or other weight up to 150 lbs, for increased penetration in harder soils…these blocks do not come with it!! Also keep in mind that the soil must have adequate moisture in it for the spikes to be able to penetrate.
There is a lever which raises the wheels up (for aerating) or down (which holds the “spikes” out of the ground, for transport). This adjustment takes a few seconds.
Recommended to fit BCS models 749, 750, 852 or 853, or Grillo model G110 Walk-behind tractor; Tow coupler to attach the aerator to specific tractor make/model must be purchased separately (see below). Wheel weights may be required for extra tractor traction as well.
