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.

Great Results With The Agri-fab 48" Aerator
The Agri-Fab 48" Aerator arrived quickly and in perfect condition - the box was not torn or damaged despite the heavy weight. See attached photo. I took my time assembling the aerator and didn't run into any problems. All the nuts/bolts/washers were packaged in plastic wrap and nothing was missing. Total time was 2 hours. The instructions were easy to follow.

I put the maximum amount of weight on the tray of the aerator and pulled it with my JD X750 over 2 acres of grass. 2 hours... more

Bad Quality, Not Good Return Policy
I received a used and damaged aerator un-assembled about 2 weeks ago. I was amazed by the huge mistake after reading so many convincing reviews on this product. Long story short when I try to return they aerator, they take away 25% of the cost I paid as it was broken in a weld spot and clearly shown it was a return and used prior to opening the box.

The customer service is fishy and I'm not sure I'll ever get my money back and until I do this remains my 1st experience with this company.

Tom,
I am very sorry to hear about your aerator. This unit ships in pieces and does require assembly, as stated on our specs tab on the product page. Based on our email communication, we requested that you send images of the damage so that we can begin to process the return, which was sent 5/5/17. We have not received these images as of today, 5/10/17, and are limited in our ability to offer an additional resolution until we receive these images. If you have any questions regarding what we need, please give us a call and we can assist. Thank you very much for your business and I hope to hear from you soon so that this can be resolved.

Great Company
First of all, this company gets things to you fast. I ordered a power washer and this particular aerator, and both were here within 3 days of the order (and both with free shipping). The aerator is a heavy-duty machine.

In most instances, you will need to add weight, but once you put on anywhere from half to the full weight they recommend, it cores about as well as the power aerators and is much easier to use.

It corners alright, with just a bit of drag on a tight turn, but it is 48... more

Built Very Well
Instructions to assemble were great, being clear and well written. Not hard to assemble but takes time. The manufacturer cut no corners being all heavy guage steel. Works well now, I hope my lawn enjoys it as well. I would recommend this product to a friend again. Shipping box was a little beat up but all was well inside. Shipping was fast.

Superb Aerator
Easy to assemble, but it does take a little time. Performance exceeded all expectations. Uniformly pulled 3" plugs with 100lbs of sandbags on the shelf. No more paying someone else to aerate the yard.

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

Good Machine
The Agri-fab 45-0299 worked very well on my yard. I used it after a rainfall, and the plugs would come out 1" 2" and 3" depending on how soft the ground was. I have no complaints and I think it should hold up for a long time. It seams to be very well built.
