Grasshopper released its new PTO-drive Aera-vator, a coreless aerator for its FrontMount zero-turn mowers. Oscillating steel tines deep-fracture hard, dry soil to create a more resilient surface and improve permeability and drainage, Grasshopper said.
Available in 40- and 60-inch models, this front-mounted aerator helps aerate playing fields, turf and compacted soil in hard-to-reach areas. By eliminating cores left behind by plug and core aerators, the machine causes minimal surface disruption, with the turf ready for use immediately.
The PTO-driven Aera-vator aerates and loosens compacted soil in less time with less the labor than walk-behind units, eliminating cores and increasing water absorption in the root zone, the company said.
