Billy Goat AE403V 5hp Self-Propelled Professional Lawn Aerator
Experience industry's softest tine engagement and exclusive Lift-n-Lock™ tine disengagement for best in class comfort, ease of turning and productivity with the the Billy Goat AE403V professional aerator.
Powered by a 169cc Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 160 engine, the Billy Goat AE403V features a 19" working width. The 24 coring tines, with 4.5" x 7" tine pattern, measure .625" x 2.5". The tine stars are a patented design allowing individual replacement as opposed to the entire shaft. The aerator alleviates soil compaction by punching a core plug into the soil promoting deeper root growth, as well as improved air, water and nutrient flow to the turf. It is one of the best ways to enjoy a thick, healthy, drought-resistant lawn.
The Billy Goat AE403V core aerator totally eliminates the conventional and cumbersome centre wheel and centre drum designs found on other machines, which can be prone to wear, vibration and damage. The outboard drive wheels on Billy Goat's AE401H aerator also eliminate centre wheel slip and abuse from ramp loading with tines engaged.
In addition, this mechanical aerator eliminates cumbersome filling of a conventional centre drum found on other units on the market, which are prone to wear, vibration and damage.
Tilt up serviceability, removable tine stars and Fold-n-Go handles and easy adjust drive chains combine to make service and transportation easy and convenient. The thick 'O'-ring style chain helps long life and better lubrication and stands up to pressure washing. Pillow block bearings with grease nipples reduce wear and downtime for maintenance.
Optional solid steel spikes (part no: BG360394-S sold as a set with 24 spikes) are available for improving drainage or for other no-plug applications.
