The PL2500SPH Self-Propelled Hydro-Drive aerator delivers up to 35,000 square feet of aeration per hour and punches core depths to 2.75 inches even in hard soil conditions. It has a top speed of 2.62 mph or 3.846 feet per second. Eight reciprocating cam driven tines propel the unit forward and variable speed hydro-drive allows for denser hole pattern at slower speed where needed, plus eliminates fatigue from pushing while transporting or ramp loading and provides commercial operators with enhanced control while aerating on hilly areas.
The unit is easy to maneuver without lifting, requires no add-on weights, has no chains and is simple to service.
Built-in quick release receiver hitch offers simple conversion to a ride-behind unit when adding an optional chariot. Reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity.
