PL1802 18” Width PLUGR® Reciprocating Aerator

PL1802 18” Width PLUGR® Reciprocating Aerator

The newly enhanced 18” PLUGR® aerates up to 22,000 sq. ft. / hour

Model Number : PL1802V

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. No-lift turning offers fatigue-free operation and a new ergonomic handle is Iso mounted for reduced vibration. A longer belt span improves belt de-clutching, increasing belt life.

Features

One Piece Lift-Off Removable Cover

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.
