New from Classen®, this vertical aerator is designed to punch cleaner holes in turf without additional weights. It’s easy to use, easy to maintain and – thanks to its price, even easier to purchase. As with all Classen turf care products, simplicity is built in. An open design allows for clear unobstructed access to the engine. The rust resistant tine shield is lightweight and easy to remove for access to the tines and drive belt. And, because the new Classen Reciprocating Aerator doesn’t utilize hydraulics to independently drive the tines, the operator controls are simple.
