2021 AERVATOR GH5004 CTF (TRAILING, FOLDING, 5.0M)
AUSTRALIAS #1 AERATOR - Aeration, Renovation, Cultivation, Oversowing & Compaction Relief.
Aerators relieve soil compaction without damaging the grass you already have and prevent rain runoff on your paddocks. Aeration involves perforating the soil with slots to allow water, air, and nutrients to penetrate down to the grassroots.
WHEN IS IT BEST TO AERATE YOUR PADDOCKS?
As we all know The best day to plant a tree is... 30 years ago. The second best day is today. It's the same for aeration.
The benefits of aeration are compounded treatment after treatment. we suggest using your Aervator the day it arrives. no matter what time of year that is providing your soil is not waterlogged.
Often we find that annual or biannual use gives the best results though this depends on your soil.
Aussie farmers also use aeration to greatly increase the availability of fertilizer to your plant's root zone by creating a path for the fertilizer to penetrate deep into the soil.
HOW TO AERATE USING AN AERVATOR?
The rotating tine has a very clean action designed to aerate by opening and shattering the topsoil with minimal damage to existing plants, This action is vertical tillage AKA VerTill.
The Design of the Aervator's tines allows them to twist as they pass through the soil this is intentional. Through this motion, the Aervator is able to shatter the soil, greatly reduce compaction and create pathways for air water, and nutrients to enter your plants' root zone.
For best results the Aervator requires two factors:
WEIGHT. Weight is built into our heavy-duty, over-spec Australian steel frames. If you find your tines are not fully penetrating the soil you have a compaction issue but don't worry we have you covered, just add our optional concrete blocks and those tines will dig into even the most compact paddocks in as little as two passes.
SPEED. The Aervator ideally needs to travel at 7 - 10 kph for the tines to achieve the shattering effect.
Proudly manufactured in Australia. The GH series of Aervator are the workhorse of the Aervator range.
