Plug Aerator in Action

Recommended Posts


I picked up a 48" plug aerator yesterday under the guise I needed it for my wife's horse pasture.

Well today it got a work out after a nice rain last night. Started in the front yard then moved to the horse pastures.



The HB212 got thirsty...


I'd say about 2" plugs came out. Overall I am pretty happy as the yard and pastsures have not been aerated in 16 years. Unless you count the few times I used the push mower with golf spikes.


I just love the versatility of these machines!

Thanks Ray! I couldn't have gotten her back up and running without your help with bearing replacement.

I am working on replacing the bearings on the Weedcutter next.

I love aerating the lawn, I think it really helps the lawn when you have large parcels that are too costly to use lawn chemicals. I have heard it's best in the fall, but who knows, both seasons can't hurt.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
