Aeration is the secret to achieving green, healthy, and lush grass. All the seeding, watering, and fertilizing in the world won’t make a lawn green if compacted soil blocks water, oxygen, and nutrients from reaching the lawn’s root system. By means of poking holes in the soil or removing plugs of soil, aeration exposes grass roots to nutrients and water and room to breathe. For minor to moderately compacted soil, use a spike aerator and for clay soil or severely compacted soil, use a plug aerator for the best results.
Brinly 40” Tow-Behind Combination Aerator-Spreader
Aerating a lawn and spreading seed and fertilizer in the spring and fall are the best ways to have a green, healthy lawn. However these can often be big projects; especially if you have a large yard. The Brinly 40” Combination Aerator-Spreader helps get these projects done quickly and easily with only one attachment. The 120 lb. capacity hopper drops seed, fertilizer, or lime while galvanized tine stars aerate the lawn to allow water, air, and nutrients to get to the lawn’s root system. Having a lawn like a pro has never been easier!

- Great item Review by Larry

This product was perhaps the easiest laid-out and ready to assemble product that I've ever seen. Every step, in photo, matched the parts package for that sub-assembly. Parts for Step 1 were all together attached to a card board for that assembly, Step 2, parts were set up for that section, right down the line. It was too easy.
I did have an issue with one missing part in the box. I called immediately and the part was shipped the very next day. I received it in Florida the second day. I could not have asked for better customer service. I appreciate that.
As for how the part performed, it is very easy to handle. It attaches easily and does exactly what I needed it to do. First to aerate and drop seed, then to follow that immediately with granular fertilizer.
An optional box cover could be a good item for the R & D department, one that could be outfitted with a weight if someone had a need for added weight.
I highly recommend this product for residential use and I use it exclusively for my commercial use.

Seeding and aerating at the same time means I only have to go over the lawn once. It's built well. Only complaint is that the handle to engage the aerator spikes takes a little effort if seated. Overall very happy with the purchase.
