MAXI Series Aervator

When a single row of gangs isn’t enough to get the results you are hoping for, then it’s time to call on the literal earth-shattering power of Farmtechs’s Maxi series! 

The Maxi series combines the ruggedness and durability of Farmtech’s other aervators with an additional row of gangs which effectively doubles the result especially in areas of cultivation by increasing the shattering effect of the soil. This feature also reduces the need for a second pass when aerating.

These implements easily relieve soil compaction and allow water, air, and nutrients to penetrate down to the grassroots. This mechanism also increases the proliferation, growth, and activity of aerobic bacteria. This would then improve the soil’s quality and multiplies the nutrients that are readily available for the plants. 

The Maxi series also help in developing deeper and stronger root systems which help your plants become more resistant to the dry season. Deep-rooted plants also have far greater uptake of minerals and trace elements, ultimately resulting in improved herd health.

What’s more, these machines’ multi-gang system and twin gang rows are systematically designed to do their tasks without destroying the grasses found on the field when in aeration settings and turn the soil over creating a fine seedbed in the cultivation settings. 

The Maxi series affords each user absolute control over this by choosing among five operation modes depending on your present needs or the condition of your field.

The Maxi series boasts a standard lineup of four fixed models with working widths that range from between 3-meters to 5-meters. Each requires a tractor with a power output that’s somewhere between 120-200 HP depending on the effective width of the model. We also manufacturer folding machines from 4m to a Goliath 8m

For any of the models, what you’ll get is an amazing implement that requires hardly any maintenance thanks to its durable, large rotor bearings. If you need extra durability because of your soil type you can choose to have your tines hard-headed for longer life in demanding conditions. The frame is made of heavy duty steel that has a hot dip Galv finish.

To achieve the best results, we highly recommend combining the Maxi series with an electric seeder and a spring tine harrow to create a true one-pass renovator so you can simultaneously perforate the soil as well as apply seeds on your paddock.

Product Features

The Maxi Series Aervator is ideal for pasture renovation or aeration. Proudly manufactured in Australia, the Maxi Series features a second row of gangs doubling the effect especially in areas of cultivation by increasing the shattering effect of the soil. This feature also reduces the need for a second pass when aerating. 

The Maxi Series standard features include heavy duty over spec steel frames made from quality Australian steel, hot dipped galvanised finish, two rows of gangs, tines that are spaced at 95mm, large rotor bearings, a multi gang system, as well as aeration and cultivation settings. 

The series also offers three different configurations. Choose between a 3PL or trailing, fixed or folding frame, or 2.0 to 5-metre working width. 

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.
