Extended Description

  • Agri-Fab 40" (1016 mm) Tow-Behind Plug Aerator
  • Aerate compacted soil to promote new grass growth and enjoy a golf course like
  • lawn. Ideal for use with many brands of lawn tractor type ride-on lawn mowers
  • including but not limited to selected Cox, Craftsman, Dixon, Greenfield, Husqvarna,
  • John Deere, Jonsered, McCulloch, MTD, Murray, Poulan Pro and Rover ride-on lawn
  • mower models etc.
  • Aerating means pulling small soil plugs, ranging up to three inches in length, from
  • the soil to create small reservoirs that will bring oxygen, fertilizer and water
  • down into the roots. For best aerator performance, the following lawn preparations
  • and operating procedures are recommended.
  • OPERATION: CAUTION: POINTS OF AERATOR KNIVES ARE SHARP! EXERCISE CAUTION AT ALL
  • TIMES WHILE USING THE AERATOR.
  • 1. Mow lawn and remove loose clippings prior to use of lawn aerator.
  • 2. Start the lawn tractor engine with controls in neutral and place throttle at a
  • slow engine speed.
  • 3. Engage shift lever at the lowest possible forward speed and lower aerator,
  • allowing plugger points to enter the ground. Increase speed as conditions permit.
  • 4. Aerate in the straightest line possible, making overlapping passes to increase
  • the plugger point pattern.
  • 5. Avoid extremely sharp turns with plugger points engaged in ground to prevent
  • damage to lawn.
  • 6. DO NOT cross over foot paths or drive ways without first raising the aerator to
  • the transport position.
  • 7. On sloped lawns, always aerate in an up and down direction. DO NOT attempt to
  • follow the contour of the ground.
  • 8. To increase the depth of plugger point penetration, up to 140 lb (63.5 Kg) of
  • weight, such as bags of sand or (4) concrete blocks, may be added to the tray. The
  • weight can be secured to the tray with ties or straps fastened to the front and
  • rear of the tray. Fasten so that the ties or straps cannot become entangled on
  • rotating parts.
  • 9. If the ground is extremely hard and dry, it is recommended that it be sprinkled
  • or watered down for one or two hours prior to aerating.
  • 10. DO NOT attempt to aerate if ground is too wet, (muddy).
  • 11. Due to small rocks and gravel which are normally present in aerated soil plugs,
  • it is recommended that the plugs be raked; otherwise damage to the lawn mower
  • blades may arise, especially when reel type mowers are used.
