Questions & Answers

Is it necessary to weigh it down with concrete blocks?

The manufacturer states that it must be accompanied by 10 to 100 pounds of weight. My favorite way to clean the driveway is to use two fifty-pound bags of playground sand

Is there a height adjustment for up and down or for multiple height adjustments?

As a rule of thumb, the heavier the weight, the more you will have to climb. In general, the more cinder blocks you put on it, the deeper the spikes will go, although I think they only go 1 1/2 inches in the ground anyway.

In addition to leveling out mole mounds, would this help smooth out the yard as well?

Aeration items are designed to aerate properties, they will not level out mole mounds and smooth out properties. I suggest that an Agri-ex Leveler be used instead to smooth out properties and level out mole mounds. The Fab Poly roller is available. I am 45 years old. Item 0267, 45-44 You can contact us at 0268 or 4568

Is it supposed to be that low when I raise the wheels? My handle lies on the ground when I raise the wheels. ?

Please go to the 45-minute break room instead of letting it lie on the ground Check out 0544 on Amazon and watch the Agri-Pulse If the product was assembled correctly, you will be able to see the Video Instruction Guide for the Fab 40" Spike Aerator

I expected it to be lighter than it actually was

The lawnmower my wife bought was a heavy duty machine, and I was concerned it would not be heavy duty enough for our yard, which is rocky in some places and has some roots in the way, but much to my surprise, it worked perfectly. I thought the components would be quite heavy duty, but they don't seem so. Spike assembly was already assembled, but the rest of the parts went together easily with a crescent wrench, a couple sockets and basic wrenches. After filling the tray up with blocks, it was able to hold the weight.

With my small 30" Craftsman riding mower, I can easily move it

The Craftsman rer1000 30" riding mower I own is from Craftsman. The engine is about 7 years old, and it is an early version with 420cc. It can pull this thing with no problem. Additionally, that is running just off idle as well. In the case of my yard, I just waited till the day after a rain, because it had already turned into a brick. I added four concrete bricks, 4x8x12, on top of it and then towed it away. The majority of spots are penetrated well. As a result, I had to use actual ratchet straps in order to secure the bricks. The rocks, roots, limbs, and erosion ruts made it difficult for those things to shimmy their way out on the first lap.

I've just moved into a new place Getting around the yard feels like standing in a mud hole. My name is Yoo. I had to keep an eye on it since all of the contraction debris, as well as roots, were occasionally fowling it up. No problems with the rocks or anything like that, it bounced over them. It appears that the spikes have not The debris was spiked and was dragging so I had to stop half a dozen times to grab it. When assembling the parts, I added grease to them at certain points. There is no harm in promoting It is possible to modify the lever for folding the wheels if I wish. The wheels are lifted by gravity in this way and it works well. There were large blocks of wood that caught the ball and forced it past the holding There is a chance that I may install a slightly longer bolt.

This seems durable enough to last for quite some time. The home use of these devices is likely to last for decades. My yard will be cleared of debris as soon as there is some grass in it. The holes should allow air, water, fertilizer, and seeds to fall through and help the crops In the future it should help with the water, air, and fertilizer once I begin establishing thatch, compost, and soil. You've caught my attention!

I like this.

These two things are important

Assemble in groups of two persons to ensure safety due to the Two) have a lot of tools at hand. The entire project took just three hours. Each part is singular, nothing is pre-assembled. Many of the scheduled times do not coincide with one another. Moreover, there is no text in the assembly instructions, which makes it difficult to understand. The second case is. As soon as you have removed the bolts from 4 steps before, install bracket in step 8 and then turn the bolts back on. When you have aligned the bolts from one part, you should not tighten them until you have aligned the bolts from another part. The screwdrivers for the 2 sides of the bolt and nut while balancing the assembly) were far too complex. Due to a lack of clear instructions, this was one of the worst assemblies I have done. I gave 3 stars due to the hassle of assembling it. Once used, I will adjust The ability to last and be useful.

A good product, but a little better would have been nice! It will pay for itself fairly quickly after a few uses, which is the good thing about this product

There are also a few nice features such as wheels to lift the blades off the ground, as well as a tongue to attach it to your riding mower that pivots so that it occupies less space in your garage when it is not in use. In spite of this, there are two things that could be improved. The first problem is there are no washers included, and while they are not essential, because of the relatively loose tolerances in the components (which make assembly easier), they would be useful to provide a little more reassurance. The instructions are good when it comes to installing the wheel pivot handle, lever, and its stop, but they're terrible when it comes to installing the pivot handle, lever, and its There is no good illustration of how these two parts relate to the tongue side of the aerator in the pictures. When I assembled it according to how it appeared in the manual, I found that it did not work as it was supposed to, and I was able to fix the problem by referring to the assembled unit on the front page of the manual. As for the paint job, it's not a very heavy duty one, so keeping it out of the weather and cleaning it after use would be a great idea.

This product does what it claims

In a couple reviews, this aerator was raved about for its inability to back up. I agree and think it is an unnecessary costly feature. My lawn is not mowed and I do not have any pets It was not an ordinary garden tractor, but a much bigger compact tractor which made things worse. Due to my yard's shape, I had to back up a lot so I modified and improvised. My tractor has a three-point hitch in the rear By attaching chains to the draw bar and connecting them to the aerator, I made a point hitch. I tried it a few times, and it worked great, so I removed the aerators wheels as well. My solution is to just raise the rear hydraulic lift, which in turn raises the aerator so that I can drive or back up. When two 16-inch blocks are added to the equation for additional weight, it actually works very well. In terms of the aerator, I modified it but it still works great!.
