Petrol Lawn Aerator for Hire

 Guaranteed In Stock Today!

Our petrol lawn aerator for hire is designed to be used only on grassed areas where the surface soil is more than 10cm in depth.

Effective lawn aeration is essential for maintaining the health of any lawn, encouraging deep root growth and nutrients into the soil and also for improving the drainage while alleviating any dry patches.

This is far easier to achieve if you are equipped with a powered lawn hollow tine aerator (or lawn 'plugger').

You can fit this handy and reliable petrol-driven aerator with either hollow corers (for compacted lawns) or solid spikes (for general lawn maintenance) - and a key feature of this particular product is the fact you can change the tines from spikes to corers (or vice versa) in less than five minutes. Our aerators are supplied with hollow tines. If you require solid tines please ask at booking.

Operating the Petrol Hollow Tine Lawn Aerator

This petrol lawn aerator for hire is extremely simple to operate and is powered by a 4 stroke 5.5 horse power Honda engine which runs on normal unleaded petrol. This powerful and reliable engine allows the machine to work unhindered on even the toughest of garden terrain up to a maximum slope gradient of 20 degrees.

You have one lever to engage the drive to the tines, and another to drop them into the ground. The machine works by punching the tines into the ground using the power of the engine and having the added benefit of being self-propelled, so you don't have to push it along. The tines can punch up to 3 inches deep into the ground depending on the conditions and texture of the soil and allows it to achieve perfect aeration every time.

Furthermore, the aerator is fitted with light pneumatic tyres which not only helps to reduce any damage to the lawn but also makes this a very manoeuvrable machine which can be easily steered into difficult areas of your garden. Also at being only 71cm (28 inches) wide, the aerator will comfortably fit through a standard garden gate.

Other Benefits and Features

  • Supplied complete with a full tank of petrol.
  • Folding Handle bars which make this aerator both easy to store and transport.
  • Fits through a standard garden gate.
  • Height Adjustable - There are 3 settings used for changing the height of the machine and this is achieved by changing the position of the rear axles. Each axle has 3 holes which can be attached to the main chassis frame. Attaching the axles to the lowest position holes will have the effect of moving the tines closer to the ground and therefore increasing the depth the aerator will penetrate by 10mm. The two alternative positions will raise the height of the tines away from the ground and decrease the depth the tines will penetrate. Each step position will either increase or decrease the depth of the tines by 10mm.

Q - What's the difference between the hollow and solid tines when using the lawn aerator?

  • Solid tines will help improve the soil drainage and also help vital nutrients to reach the soil roots. Hollow tines will do the same but will also help to alleviate surface compaction. Our aerators are supplied with hollow tines. If you require solid tines please ask at booking.

Q - Why should you aerate your lawn?

  • Regular aeration of your lawn will help to help improve the health of your grass.

Q - How often should you aerate your lawn?

  • It would depend on the soil you have as some types require aeration more often than others. Clay soil for instance compacts quite easily so you should look to aerate at least once a year as with Sandy soil. Whereas soil in an arid climate (ones which receive than 10 inches of rainfall a year), would need to be done at least twice a year to help with lawn growth.

Q - Will the petrol aerator fit through my garden gate?

  • Yes, the Camon aerator is only 27 inches wide so will comfortably fit through a standard garden gate.

Q - What fuel that the aerator run on?

  • It will run on regular unleaded petrol.

Q - Do you supply the aerator with solid or hollow tines?

  • Either, you can choose which tines you require. The hollow corers are used to remove thatch which is something that encourages healthy root growth and allows the nutrients into the soil. The Soil spikes are great at improving lawn drainage and alleviating any dry patches. Changing between the two sets is very easy and takes less than 5 minutes.

Q - How easy is the aerator to use?

  • It is very manoeuvrable and straightforward to operate. You have one lever to engage the drive to the tines and another to drop them into the ground. Once in the ground, the machine will walk itself forward while spiking or coring. This is done at a medium walking pace.

Q - How does the machines aerate the ground?

  • It works by punching the tines into the ground using the power of the engine, and it walks itself along, so you don't have to push it. The tines can punch up to 3 inches into the ground depending on soil conditions. The working speed is a medium walking pace.

Q - What is the maximum gradient slope the machine will work on?

  • You can use the machine up to a 20-degree slope.

Q - How big are the tines?

  • Solid Tine Dimensions 10mm diameter & 100mm length
  • Hollow Tines Dimensions 19mm diameter & 100mm length

Q - Can you adjust how deep tines go into the ground?

  • Yes, the depth of the tine penetration is altered by changing the position of the rear axles which has 3 hole settings by which it is  attached to the main chassis. This is what is used to adjust the height. By moving from the lowest hole to the middle hole and to the highest will decrease the depth of the tines by 10mm each step.
