DR® Power Equipment Announces a Coring Lawn Aerator

| 2/21/2012 12:09:11 PM

When most people think of lush, healthy grass, golf courses and athletic fields spring to mind. Spring, summer, and fall, dedicated groundskeepers keep fairways and fields green, thick, and free of weeds. One major secret to their success is core aeration. Core aeration pulls plugs of thatch and compacted soil to create the conditions for optimal turf health.  Regular use of a core aerator is the starting place for all subsequent lawn maintenance.

When DR Power Equipment  considered aeration tools for the homeowner market it was clear that the predominant option for consumers was a spike-style aerator. Unfortunately for homeowners using those tools, spiking aerators actually increase soil compaction and can tear turf. DR Power Equipment decided that their customers deserved every advantage when it came to a healthy lawn. After months of design and testing the engineers at DR Power  perfected a professional quality core aerator that’s sized and priced right for the homeowner.

The DR Lawn Aerator, which features the coring technology used by professionals,  is manufactured in the United States by DR Power Equipment in its Winooski, Vermont facility and is available for sale directly from DR Power Equipment: 

The DR® Lawn Aerator 

The self-propelled DR® Lawn Aerator pulls 2"-3" plugs of turf, thatch, and soil at four-inch intervals as it travels across the lawn. The DR Lawn Aerator is easy to handle and navigates right around trees and obstacles. The holes left behind reduce soil compaction and allow for better absorption of water, fertilizer and nutrients. The result: a healthy root system that produces beautiful, robust turf.

The key features of the unit are its synchronized cast-iron camshaft and hardened steel coring tines. Each tine is precisely angled to cleanly extract a 5/8" diameter plug of soil and automatically eject it. The tines literally "walk" the machine across  the lawn making this powerful piece of equipment self-propelled. The DR Lawn Aerator sets a comfortable pace of 2.5mph as soon as the handle is engaged.
