Product Features

AERATE, RENOVATE & MAINTAIN – 00 NEUTRAL SETTING

  • The axle is straight
  • This is used when the soil structure is very friable.
  • The tines will usually penetrate their full depth.
  • This setting is usually used to maintain the soil structure, possibly once a year in a maintenance program.

AERATE & RENOVATE – 2.50 SETTING

  • The axle has 2.5 degrees of angle
  • This is ideal for your first use of the aervator.
  • If your ground is hard the tines may not penetrate very far, maybe only 25-50 mm.
  • Don’t worry, this is normal. Aeration is not a quick fix.

AERATE & RENOVATE – 50 SETTING

  • The axle has 5 degrees of angle
  • Use this setting for subsequent uses of the aervator.
  • With each pass you should change the direction of travel.
  • Across then diagonally is ideal.

CULTIVATE & RENOVATE – 7.50 SETTING

  • The axle has 7.5 degrees of angle
  • On this setting the aervator starts to get aggressive.
  • You may require additional weight or ‘ballast’ to acheive maximum depth.
  • This setting is best used after previous passes and will fracture any compaction layer.
  • If used on extremely hard ground the tines will probably not penetrate very far.

CULTIVATE – 100 SETTING

  • The axle has 10 degrees of angle
  • On this setting the aervator is very aggressive.
  • Again use weight.
  • This setting is best used after previous passes and will fracture any compaction layer.
  • If used on hard ground the tines will probably not penetrate very far.

Aeration requires multiple uses of the aervator to achieve results.
Depending on your soil structure, this could take 12-24 months.
The ideal time to use is autumn and spring depending on your rainfall.
