Product Description

Loosen Tough, Compacted Soil with the Craftsman Lawn Aerator

Revitalize your lawn with the Craftsman core aerator. The universal aerator attaches to the back of any brand lawn, garden or yard tractor so you can aerate soil quickly with minimal effort. The core aerator pulls narrow plugs from the lawn up to 3 inches deep, loosens compact soil and prepares lawns for spring and fall planting. A properly aerated lawn helps water and nutrients reach deeper into the soil. Roots will grow deeper and stronger, and you'll have a healthier, lush lawn as a result.

The Craftsman lawn aerator rejuvenates tough, compacted soil like clay, areas that receive heavy foot traffic or lawns damaged by drought. Constructed of heavy galvanized soil, the aerator has an enclosed weight tray that can support up to 100 pounds of ballast to cut through heavily compacted lawns. The 10- by 4-inch wheels roll smoothly over rough terrain, and the 24 coring points are easy to raise and lower via a convenient handle.

NOT A BAD AERATOR. GO OUT AND GET YOURSELF ONE
Over all I have to give this thing 5 stars. I bought mine boxed and it was not that difficult to put together. It took about an hour. The one thing I was concerned about that no one mentioned in any other reviews or on the video online was how well did it hold up turning. It turns out I had no problems. I pulled it behind my zero turn mower. I do think it is best to use earily spring or late fall when the ground is nice and soft obviously. I had 2 tube sand bags from my truck on top of it. I think the main thing to remember is you dont need to go fast. take it slow and steady. It says it is commercial quality but even commercial equipment isnt meant to be thought of as indistructive. I still didnt make any 90 degree turns when I came to the end of my yard. make it a 3 or 4 point turn. This way there will be minimum stress on the tines. I guess my only complaint would be since it is a once and done until the end of the season piece of equipment, I would like to see grease fittingsfor the axel on the tines. I know I am probably a little too meticulus, but all of my other equipment gets a hose down and regrease after every use. For the price, if I get 2 or 3 seasons with a spring and fall pull out of it I will be satisfied and buy another one. So go out and get one, and remember slow and steady, watch tree roots (go over them slowly), sprinkeler heads, in ground dog fences, and tight turns, clean it up when your done, try to spray some white lithium grease on the tine axel and it should last a while.

Unhappy with purchase!
Purchased this aerator in hopes that it would save me from having to rent aerators on a yearly basis as I own a local lawn service. Purchased on sale for $159.88 at my local Sears store. This item appeared to be very sturdy and built well. So I purchased it. No matter how much weight I put on it, I could not get plugs to be any more than half inch max plugs. This after watering yard and adding 180 lbs at one point. It was hard to even tell that the yard had been aerated. I will be returning to Sears tomorrow. Not a happy customer!! Next time I will try it before buying it!

good value- handle could be better

works well but the handle for engaging and disengaging is not as smooth or secure as I would like.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Aerator saves my lawn! As the summer got warmer my lawn goes to brown.

By using the aerator early in May the watering stayed in the yard and not running down the street. Aerating in July kept the lawn green with less watering.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It works but it is overrated

The unit is quite heavy. It's not too difficult to put together. I'd say it takes less than 30m. Overall build quality is okay. It's an aerator so it's designed to poke holes in the ground. For the most part it does just that. However: - You definitely need to add a decent amount of weight. In my case this meant over 100lbs. - Once you add the weight you are going to have some trouble going up inclines. - You really need to drive slow with this unit. This isn't easy with all lawn tractors. - You definitely cannot use the lift handle when you are driving. First, it goes down so low it's nearly impossible to reach without triggering the seat shutoff. Second, once you add 100lbs to the back it is very hard to lift the handle. - Also once you load the unit down with weight the aeration plugs will hit a solid surface even when the wheels are down. Overall, it's a good unit for the money; however, I'd prefer a narrower unit with closer spacing that I can pull faster.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Aerator

Comes in several pieces. Be sure to have time to put it together. Very sturdy. You will definitely need to add weights to it so that it will punch through the ground properly. Works great.

Craftsmans Lawn Aerator

We were a little hesitant to buy this product, not sure it would really work well for our lawn. Took a little time to put together, but once we completed putting the aerator together, we hooked it up to our lawn tractor and started aerating our lawn. We were surprised in how well a job it did for us. Just after we did our 1/2 acre of lawn, it started to down pour. After a week went by we actually notice how thick and green the lawn was getting since we used the aerator. We are well pleased and very satisfied. We would highly recommend this Aerator to anyone that is thinking of buying this model. We believe we will get our money's worth out of this product made by Craftsman.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great results!

I had read all of the warnings about the edges being sharp and was careful, but still found a slice on my leg when I was done. The instructions were pretty clear and I didn't have much difficulty, aside from it being awkward to work with. After a good rain I took it out with three 40lb bags of lime in the back. It pulled plugs pretty consistently as long as I went slowly, but that was fine. Overall I'm happy with the purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great little aerator

For something that doesn't cost a lot, it does a decent job. We have very hard clay and with 3 blocks on, this was able to pull plugs up nicely. Hopefully will last us a very long time.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
