Q: Which tow-behind core aerators will work with a Toro Z42XX zero turn mower? Thank you!
by Ross Levin from Maryland on July 01, 2016

A: Ross,

As long as your mower has a hitch included, any of the tow behind aerators will work as the Z42XX is a commercial grade mower.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the agri-fab 48" tow-behind aerator pull out plugs of soil, like on a golf course?
by Ed from Indiana on August 29, 2015

A: Ed - the Agri-Fab 45-0299 is a core plug aerator, so it will leave small plugs of soil and grass on your lawn - similar to what you would see on a golf course
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: On the Agri-Fab 45-0299 plugger aerator are all of the plugger assemblies on a single rotating shaft or do they turn individually or do they turn in pairs?
by Leslie Morgan from South Carolina on April 23, 2014

A: Leslie - all 8 of the aerating knifes on the Agri-Fab 45-0299 are on a single shaft and all 8 will turn at the same time.

The 45-0299 aerator from Agri-Fab creates a healthier lawn by loosening up compacted soil and allowing moisture and nutrients to reach your lawn’s roots.

The Agri-Fab 45-0299 has replaceable knives which will remove 3/4" diameter by up to 3" length soil plugs from your lawn. This will allow moisture and nutrients to reach your lawn’s roots for better grass growth.

Plan on spending a little time when you first receive your Agri-Fab 45-0299 on the assembly. It's not difficult,... more

From The Manufacturer
Agri-fab (48") Tow Behind Plug Aerator
Over the course of the summer a lawn starts to become compact because of weekly mowing. Aerating your lawn in the best remedy to de-compact your soil allowing water, nutrients and minerals to reach the roots. The 32 galvanized knives will penetrate the soil and remove a 3 inch plug from the ground to allow your yard to “breathe.” The Agri-Fab 48” Plug aerator is the best tool for the job when trying to create a healthy lawn.

Nice Piece Of Equipment
After reading the reviews, I chose the Agri-Fab unit. All necessary parts were in the box. It took about 2-hours to assemble. Mostly because I took my time and you must be very careful handling the plugging spikes they are very, very, very, VERY sharp and I would advise wearing leather gloves whenever handling or having your hands around them.

Once I had the unit put together I put about 125 lbs. of weight on it and started on my lawn. We had several days of light rain so the soil was... more

Solid Product
I bought this after reading the reviews and it has performed well. Time will tell for durability, but so far so good! It did take some time to assemble, but I had some helpers to make it quicker. The time consuming part is putting the knives on the axle mounts, but we did a little assembly line and knocked it out quickly. I used 3 concrete blocks for weights and will probably use a 4th next time. Aerated a day after a nice rain and it easily pulled plugs all day. I have 3 acres and used a... more

Best Piece Of Lawn Equipment Ever Purchased
I reside in RI and manage an acre of landscaping. In years past, I have rented a power aerator for fall over seeding, and if you have ever used one of these machines, it essentially beats the life out of you as they are heavy and unwieldy. Well, I decided to check into an aerator attachment for my tractor, and based on reviews on Mowers Direct, I chose the 48" Agri-Fab tow behind plug aerator.

Long story short, it is amazing!!!!! Easy to assemble (be careful as the plug blades are... more

Happy With Product
I like the way the aerator pulls and turns much sharper than I expected. I sure wish it was built with a longer tongue for easier backing into corners. I have used it on three yards and I am impressed with its quality.

Satisifed Customer
Not as difficult to assemble as other reviews may indicate. Only missing a couple of washers that I picked up at a local hardware store. Manufacturer still has not sent correct washers 3 weeks later. Overall satisfied - great product that will pull some plugs! I was averaging 2.5" plugs.

Positivley A Good Investment
I rented a plug aerator for years $80.00 for 1/2 a day hard to load on pu. and hard to handle, Bought new home with.1acre lawn bought agri-fab 48" tow behind plug aerator, hitch to rider mower and finished in two hrs. so easy did better then rental in less time no sweat no strain. Only problem, my fault, my gate is too small (40"), so I have to widen my gate.
