Hooker Aerator MODEL 755 - 60" TOW-BEHIND 5 Heads
The JRCO Hooker Aerator, used for years as a front-mounted attachment for landscape aeration, is now available in a tow-behind version. The 3-head tow-behind is ideal for compact ZTR mowers and is extremely maneuverable. Mounted on a compact mower, the 36" wide aerator will comfortably fit through most gates.
The soft-plug style of aeration is ideal for lawns, sports fields, golf fairways or anywhere true plug aeration is needed, without the messy compacted core clean-up of a hollow tine aerator. The JRCO Hooker Aerator is many times faster than traditional hollow tine aerators, and is low maintenance with few moving parts and no engine.
The tines pierce deep into the soil, hooking and lifting loose plugs of dirt that disperse on the surface, spreading nutrients over the surface. Use it in combination with over-seeding for renovating distressed or diseased turf. Holes are approximately 1/2" wide by 1-1/4" long and up to 3" deep. Soil volume removed is comparable with a 5/8" hollow tine core.
The Hooker tow-behind aerator comes complete with a two point hitch, rigid frame and swiveling caster wheels that allow the aerator to track directly behind the tow vehicle and prevents jackknifing when backing up. The aerator caster heads swivel, allowing them to turn while aerating. The six floating rotor heads lift independently over rocks and other obstacles, while the other heads continue to aerate. An electric actuator lifts the heads into the transport position
