PL1803V & PL1801H 18” PLUGR® Reciprocating Aerator

The 18” PLUGR is ideal for smaller property aeration or rentals. No add-on weights are required and reciprocating cam-driven tines propel the unit forward and drive cores up to 2.75” deep even in hard soil conditions, offering higher quality aeration than traditional drums. The unti can do up to 22,000 sq.ft. per hour, is simple to operate for homeowners, easy to steer without lifting and requires no add-on weights. The new ergonomic handle is ISO mounted for reduced vibration and folds allowing for compact transportation and storage. Only 4 tines and no chains along with a no-tool removable cover makes for easy maintenance. Pictured: PL1803V

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.
