AE401H / AE403V

AE401H / AE403V

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 damage from ramp loading with the tines engaged.

Additionally, the AE401H and the AE403V 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.

The Billy Goat AE1300H is the best machine on the market, hands down. Not only does it pull consistetnly deep cores, but it pulls TONS of them. The reciprocating tines and variable speed mean you can pull almost an infinite amount of cores, utilizing it as a tiller for seedbed prep. The durability of the machine is second to none, as I have had it for about 5 years and it has seen around 500 hours of use! Would not buy any other aerator on the market. Drum units were made obsolete the second this machine came onto the market. I used to be against aerating because of the lack of results drum units producted, but this machine is a game changer.

"After years and years of using the cheap products, like the pull behind a mower type spike aerators and thatcher’s that did an okay job, I’ve found it pays off to have the right product. The Billy Goat AE401H Aerator and the CR550HC Compact Power Rake have given me great results. Thanks a lot for your products. I appreciate it!
