The Groundsman 12180TM Tractor Mounted Turf Aerator is a simple and compact aerator with a fast and silent aeration mechanism with working depths down to 15cm (6"). This 1.8m (60") swath mode can aerate up to 4500 square metres per hour and has a tractor requirement of 28-30HP.

The large diameter modular crank shaft has sealed bearings throughout for durability and low maintenance. The crank moves the tines vertically and horizontally to gain maximum depth with minimum surface disruptiion. Groundsman's elliptical plunge action aeration mechanism is modular and the 12180TM uses four three arm modules each driven by a 5/8" Oring sealed chain for maximum life and minimum maintenance.

The Groundsman 12180TM Tractor Mounted Turf Aerator has been designed to confine the soil cores within the swath for collection with Groundsman's patented Flexblade Core Collector attachment. Core and collect in one pass. This attachment has a series of plates like shovels linked together to follow the grass surface contours gathering 60% of the soil cores before they land on the ground and the rest are scooped cleanly off the surface. The cores are tipped in a pile when the machine is raised on the aprun. This implement can then draw the row of core pile into one collective pile leaving the surface ready for top dressing and keeping it in play.
