GENERAL NOTES (OPERATION)
Caution should be taken when towing and/or using any attachment. This attachment combined with the weight distribution, turning radius, and speed of towing vehicle can result in
severe injury or death to operator, damage to towing vehicle,

•
Ensure the combined weight of the towing vehicle
(tow vehicle weight + operator weight) is greater than
the maximum towed weight of attachment (empty
attachment weight + weight of load).
Do not exceed maximum towing capacity of towing
vehicle.
Do not exceed the maximum drawbar pull rating
of the towing vehicle. Drawbar pull is the horizontal
force required to pull the attachment (including
weight of load).
Only tow this product in the vehicle’s tow mode/
speed setting or less than 5 mph. Do not exceed 5
mph.
Towing speed should always be slow enough to
maintain control. Travel slowly and use caution when
traveling over rough terrain. Avoid holes, rocks and
roots.
Slow down before you turn and do not turn sharply.
Use wide turning angles to ensure the attachment
follows the path of the towing vehicle.
Do not use attachment on steep slopes. A heavy
load could cause loss of control or overturn attachment and towing vehicle. Additional weights may
need to be added to your vehicle; check with towing
vehicle manufacturer for recommendations.
Reduce towed weight when operating on slopes.
Keep all movement on slopes slow and gradual. Do
not make sudden changes in speed, directions, or
turning.
If you start and stop suddenly on hills, you may lose
steering control or the towing vehicle may tip. Do not
start or stop suddenly when going uphill or downhill.
Avoid uphill starts.
Slow down and use extra care on hillsides.
Turf conditions can affect vehicle stability.
Use extreme caution while operating near drop-offs.

ways.
Watch out for traffic when crossing near roadways.
Use care when loading or unloading the vehicle into
a trailer or truck.
The attachment can obstruct the view to the rear.
Use extra care when operating in reverse.
When reversing, carefully back-up straight to avoid
jackknifing. Do not allow towing vehicle wheels to
contact attachment draw bar. Damage could result.
Stop on level ground, disengage drives, set the
parking brake, and shut off engine before leaving
the operator’s position for any reason including
emptying the attachment.
Use this attachment for intended purpose only.
This attachment is intended for use in lawn care
and home applications. Do not tow behind a vehicle
on a highway or in any high speed applications.
Do not tow at speeds higher than the maximum
recommend towing speed.
Do not tow this product behind a motor vehicle such
as a car or truck.

Use only approved hitches. Tow this attachment only
with a towing vehicle that has a hitch designed
for towing. Do not connect this attachment except at the
approved hitch point.

suitable means to contain the weight in the tray.
Weight tray maximum capacity = 150 pounds.
Moderate soil moisture is important for proper penetration.
Extremely dry conditions will not permit penetration and may
damage the tines. Extremely wet conditions will cause full penetration to the tine spacers. This condition will cut slots in the turf.
SPEED
The best operating speed is 3 mph or less.
FREQUENCY
Aeration is not accomplished in a single pass. It will normally
take several passes over the lawn. Alternating the direction by

SERVICE
MAINTENANCE
After the rst 30 minutes of use check all fasteners for tightness.
Tines are manufactured with galvanized steel to resist wear of
abrasive soil. Striking objects can cause tines to curl or break.
Contact our Customer Service Department to purchase replacement Tines (Part # B-5423).
Aerator is essentially maintenance free. However as with any
steel product, it can rust. Apply a light coat of oil on tines after
use to prevent rust. For rust appearing on painted surfaces, sand
lightly and coat with enamel.
Periodically remove debris that builds up between tines.
Apply lubricating oil at each tine and bearing before use.
