Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great Just finished going over my yard this weekend with the PA482BH and it seemed to do a great job. This takes some time and patience to assemble as others have said but if you follow the directions it's not difficult. You will want to have a power tool to tighten all the bolts to save time like others have mentioned It seemed to take about a 2-2.5" plug out when it went in with 6 cement blocks on it. The construction seems very durable. The other thing to know before you start using it is where things like your invisible fence and cable feed come in the yard. Neither of those are typically buried deep enough to avoid damage from this unit it it hit them. Overall, I think the unit is a good value for the price. My only minor criticisms I would have is I wish the handle would tuck in better when storing the unit and if you turn somewhat tight with the unit it tends to make more of a "slot" than a hole. Neither of these are a big deal

Why is the 48" aerator made with 16 gauge steel, but the 40" says it is made with 14 gauge steel....

Why is the 48" aerator made with 16 gauge steel, but the 40" says it is made with 14 gauge steel. I would think the bigger unit would be made more robust. Thanks
Asked by: Charlie
That would be a question for their service line, but they are only opened a limited number of hours so plan your day around their availability.

Can the weight tray actually fit 200 lbs worth of cinder blocks (about 7 blocks)?

Asked by: CheshireCat
You might have to strap two levels of blocks down and should only be used on softer soils with that much weight so you don't bend the tines.

Can the device be used to spread without aerating?

Clearly it can be used to simultaneously spread & aerate and to only aerate, but can you use the spreader function without aerating function? Thanks!
Asked by: grasslass
The 48 in. aerator is not a spreader, it only aerates.

Do you sell weights to make the plugs penetrate deeper in the soil?

Can't seem to find this information anywhere.
Asked by: JVN1
Buy some 80 pound bags of concrete or use cinder blocks if you want it lighter.

Can a 19 hp lawn mower/tractor tow this 48" plug aerator?

Can a 19 hp lawn mower/tractor tow this 48" plug aerator, including with weight added (as recommended to help achieve depth) and over slopey (slightly hilly) ground? Or would the 40" version work better with a 19 hp tow machine? Thank you!
Asked by: grasslass
Yes it can.
