    Default Lawn Plug Areator...

    Hi...


    Looking for info./recommendations/advice/price for choosing & using a top-quality plug areator to use behind a 30HP kubota CUT (L3130)...

    ...or towed by an old Gravely 19 HP 4-wheel garden tractor...

    Have ~ 2 1/2 acres of former flat hayfield I've started mowing this year... and wanna' turn it into "lawn"... it's in west-central Vermont...

    Other tips welcome too...


    Thanks...

    Dave...

    All I ever do is just mow. After a short time, year or so, the 'lawn' just comes. Now that is in Wisconsin, but with 24D spraying once or twice a year, and mowing, the lawn just turns out great.

    Hi Dave,

    I have found Corriher (who advertise here) to be a great source for Mid West equip core aerators. I have a 48" and its a solid unit well made, and cost effective....Lawn is looking good so far, but it can puncture your or customers sprinkler line if not careful ( i was not [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img])

    Good luck!!

    Sorry, it is broadleaf herbicide spray, such as Weed-B-Gon or brush spray. 2,4-D is probably how I should have abbreviated that, and wasn't thinking at the moment. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I purchased one from Ken in kubota Orange [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] and it works excellently. It works much better than a Kioti Orange [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] one, that is for certain.

    Hi...


    thanks for the info. and post links...

    Do the areators eject the soil plugs ?

    How do the react to smaller stones.. and large buried rocks that won't move... do the tines bend/break ?

    Each time the aerator tine goes around it picks up a plug. Each time a new plug is picked up the previous plug is ejected and the process starts all over.

    Picture is credited to the junkman. (Aerator look familiar? Busted!)
