AE401H / AE402V / AE403V 19” Mechanical

AE401H / AE402V / AE403V 19” Mechanical

Core Aerator: 19” Wide

This unit completely eliminates the conventional and cumbersome center wheel and center drum designs found on other units, which are prone to wear, vibration and damage. Billy Goat’s outboard drive wheels also eliminate center wheel slip and abuse from ramp loading with the tines engaged.

Additionally, the AE401 Ser. also eliminates bulky steel weights, in favor of a simple to use water weight positioned directly over the tines for better aeration depth (full tank = 50 lbs.). The unit features the industry’s softest tine engagement and exclusive Lift N Lock™ disengagement for best in class comfort and productivity. After use and during transport, tilt up serviceability, removable tine stars, and Fold-n-Go™ handles, and easy adjust drive chains make service and transport convenient and simple.

Testimonials

After two seasons of renting aerators from Home Depot, I saved enough money to buy my own. The drum style machines that I had rented for almost 24 work days were terrible, back-breaking machines that felt like chasing a bull across every property I aerated. After a ton of research and price comparisons, I ultimately went with the PL2501SPH. While it is slightly more expensive than a base machine, it is well worth the investment. Last spring alone, I made equal the cost of the machine in just residential work. The transmission is fantastic, full forward and reverse. The best part is, my back is not broken after a day's work. The only downside is the price of replacement tines, they are a pretty penny... I’m thoroughly impressed with my new machine and The Billy Goat brand.
