Product Description

Revitalize Your lawn with the Craftsman Spike Aerator

The Craftsman 36 in spike aerator cuts small holes in the soil to create reservoirs that bring oxygen, air, fertilizer, water and nutrients to reach the root level of grass – this promotes a healthier, green lush lawn. The heavy-duty spikes penetrate up to 2.5 in. of aeration depth to get in deep compacted soil quickly and efficiently. An enclosed weight tray holds up to 100 lbs. to take on the job in half the time.

Boasting a universal design, the Craftsman spike aerator works with all brands of riding lawn mowers and tractors. It does its best work during early spring or late fall with easily compacted soil like clay, heavy traffic areas and drought-damaged lawn when moisture content is high. Heavy-duty, 10-gauge steel construction ensures long-lasting durability and performance. Includes a convenient hitch pin for quick, simple hookups. A large, 36 inch width covers large areas of ground, saving you precious time for other lawn activities.

  • The Craftsman 36 in Spike Aerator weighs only 40 lbs. for no-hassle maneuverability, portability and simple storage in your garage or garden shed
  • Large, 36 in. working width covers larger areas at once
  • 10-gauge steel frame is extremely durable
  • Enclosed weight tray holds up to 100 lbs. at once
  • Universal design works with all brands of riding lawn mowers and tractors
  • Heavy-duty spikes penetrate up to 2-1/2 in. to get deep into the soil
  • Adjustable hitch accommodates different tractor heights (hitch pin included)
  • Built by Craftsman, you can rest assured that your aerator is designed for years of lasting service
  • Rugged black finish
  • For tractors with rear hitch pin holes only
  • Some minimal assembly required
  • 1-year limited warranty protects your investment

It worked for me, I added a wood brace, 2cinder blocks+4Bricks

It worked for me. I made sure the bolts were tight and secure.

After forst reading the reviews (eg bent braces) I dediced to: (1) buy (2) add my wood brace and (3) if it still failed knowing that a failed product could be returned.  My alternative was a 4 hour rental ($50) of a 300 lb plugger gas unit.  uggh.

I added a simple 1x4 scrap pine board across the top (where the cinder blocks sit), utilized the existing pre-drilled holes in the unit and used eye-bolts to retain a bungie cord.  The aerator unit worked fine with 2cinder blocks+4 bricks inserted into the cinder block cavities.  I have approx 3/4 acre of lawn, some sloped, some tree roots, some ruts, had to pull the fully loaded unit across a concrete sidewalk and driveway to reach other areas.  It last rained approx 1 week ago, and has been sunny/hot/dry ever since.  Loam still retained some moisture.  For this it should be a 5 Start rating.

Dropped to 4 stars (above average) for two reasons (1) I could not add enough weight to get the spikes to penetrate deeper than 3/4 inch or so. I believe the loam was moist enough, but poor spike design. (2) product should not require adding wood.  As I'm not sure of the effectiveness of the depth, I may have to use this unit more than twice per year.

awful product
Product was missing parts. Easy to put together. Use one time and frame bent and tool spikes out of whack. used for about 10 minutes and quit using because it was so cheap it basically came apart. Recommend not to waste money on this.

Craftsman Spike Aerator

We stopped at our local Sears Store here in Englewood to see the owner Clif, Clif has always been very helpful with all of our purchases, we like to keep our business local and our little store is great for items for the home and the owner and employees are also very helpful.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Merely Adequate

This product is adequate. It would be nice if it was heavier on its own so you didn't have to add as much weight to it. If your yard is dry, don't expect it to do anything. Best if used after a rain or a lot of watering. I get much more use out of the dethatcher.
