Aerators & Pluggers - Pasture Aerator

Dirt Dog’s PA Series pull-type Pasture Aerators are ideal in agricultural conservation tillage and pasture renovations. The heavy-duty, knife-like tines on the aerator are designed with a twist in them to break-up compacted soil horizontally and vertically as they slice into the ground in a twisting fashion. This breaking action conditions the soil to soak up run-off water faster, allow fertilizer to penetrate deeper into the ground, and increase oxygen and water supplies to the plant roots. The built-in, metal weight box allows you to add any type of weight to help the aerator tines penetrate into the ground and reach maximum depth.
