40" Plug Aerator (PA-40BH)

If seriously compacted soil, thatch or red clay is choking the life out of your lawn, plug aeration can often be the solution. This process involves removing “plugs” of soil from your lawn, which helps control thatch development and reduces the compaction of soil. The plugs contain microorganisms that are beneficial to the soil; leaving them in the lawn helps replenish vital nutrients.

Brinly’s high-performance 40" Tow-Behind Plug Aerator is the perfect and easy way to help your lawn breathe. The fully enclosed all steel weight tray offers flexibility for adding various types of weights; 150 lbs. of additional weight may be added for aerating considerably compacted soil or hard clay. The 24 heat-treated 16-gauge steel plug spoons pull 3" soil plugs to the surface, allowing water, seed and fertilizer to reach your lawn’s root system. Each plugging spoon is individually replaceable, allowing for easy servicing. And the easy to engage transport wheels make crossing driveways and sidewalks a breeze. Don’t settle for a less than perfect lawn! Let Brinly help you get the lawn of your dreams.
