Turfco introduced its new TurnAer XT8 stand-on aerator during the 2016 GIE+EXPO, held in Louisville, Ky., Oct. 19-21.
“Aeration often needs to be done in a compressed period of time and the XT8 was created in response to the need to get the job done quickly,” said Scott Kinkead, executive vice president of Turfco. “We also designed it with our signature durability because downtime isn’t something lawn care professionals can afford during aeration season.”
The XT8 also offers aeration speeds up to 7 mph and a 30-inch aerating width.
With Auto-Depth Control, operators can set tine depth from 0 to 5 inches and the machine ensures that depth is kept consistent across a property, regardless of turf conditions.
Equipped with a 22-hp engine from Briggs & Stratton with a cyclonic air cleaner, the XT8 can cover over 2 acres in an hour, with zero-turn agility and intuitive controls that allow operators to easily handle residential, commercial and sports turf, Turfco said.
The XT8 also includes a three-year engine warranty for the Briggs & Stratton engine.
