This machine combines true 30 inch wide aeration and speed up to 4.3 mph to complete 1/4 acre in as little as 15 minutes! That's 59% faster than a 26 inch drum! Plus no more lifting on turns; aerate in reverse; do trim and edges with ease; and significantly improve hole quantity and quality vs. drum aerators.
The AE1300H features Patent Pending variable aeration density (VAD™) and creates 2 - 10 times more holes than drum models in one pass (8 - 48 holes per square feet) This eliminates double or triple aerating with drum aerators that have fixed hole patterns as low as 4 per square feet and saves significant time. VAD also offers ability to do patch repair and seed bed prep in one pass by simply slowing down over bare spots.
Patent Pending FLEXTECH™ arms act independently and are durable and forgiving for unmatched reliability. The arm's reciprocating action drives plug depths up to two times that of drums. Call backs and/or rework regardless of soil conditions are significantly reduced. "In-Ground Turning" offers unrivaled maneuverability, fatigue-free operation and improved production plus reduces downtime and turf repair when compared to drum aerators. With only eight tines and 4 bolts, tine service on this unit takes 10% of the time needed to service 40+, two-bolt drum units.
The AE1300H Hydro Aerator offers one pass aeration, using one machine and a one man crew, for a one time aeration with no call backs. That's "One & Done Aeration" that sets a whole new standard in aeration productivity!
