be imagined. Superintendents work hard to ensure that the quality of their courses perpetuates that tradition and
exceeds the expectations of today’s players. A game with such a rich past, and an industry that seeks to uphold its
legacy, deserves a partner with an equally respected reputation. For more than 60 years, Ryan® has been dedicated

RYAN AERATORS. BETTER SOIL.
BETTER TURF. BETTER PROFITS.
WHY AERATE?
Compacted soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy
root system and keeps vital nutrients from reaching the turf
roots. Through aeration, soil becomes less compacted and is
exposed to the circulation of air. Once the soil is aerated, air
exchange improves and the soil can more easily absorb water,
fertilizer and other nutrients. From a business standpoint,
aerating provides you with another service that you can
offer your customers, increasing your profit potential.
WHY AERATE WITH RYAN® WALK-BEHIND AERATORS?
Our walk-behind aerators are ergonomically designed and
durably built for long-lasting performance in smaller aerating
projects. Clean, deep, consistent penetration ensures precise and
effective results. Each handle is specifically designed to provide
Lawnaire® IV & V with

WHY AERATE WITH RYAN® tow-BEHIND AERATORS?
Ryan tow-behind aerators offer the same precision and
durability as the walk-behinds but are designed to tackle larger
jobs. The double tine option aerates up to 18 holes/square foot
while automatic lift systems provide easy operation and fast
transitions. Coring, slicing and deep-spoon tine options ensure
an application for every need. And for maximum
maneuverability, independently mounted tine wheels allow
steering while the tines are in the ground.

LAWNAIRE IV & V with
Easy steer technology
Legendary Performance, Uncompromising
Durability and Easy Steer Technology.
With the Lawnaire® IV and V with Easy Steer Technology aerators, you
never have to take the tines out of the ground to steer and turn, so
aeration is faster and easier than ever before. With this unique design,
each tine assembly rotates independently as you turn for quick and
easy maneuvering around flowerbeds, trees and landscape features.
When you don’t have to raise and lower the aeration head after each
turn, you get done sooner and you’re less tired at the end of the day.
The Lawnaire IV with Easy Steer Technology has a 19-inch swath to
help you aerate up to 32,625 square feet in an hour. The Lawnaire V
with Easy Steer Technology, with its 26.5-inch swath, will cover 45,000
square feet in an hour. Removable rear wheels on the Lawnaire V
with Easy Steer Technology make maneuvering in tight areas and
passing through gates easier, and your time more productive.
Both models feature heavy-duty construction for long life; an
easy-to-reach, handle-mounted throttle for convenient operation;
self-propelled operation and removable weights for easy loading
and unloading; and space-saving, fold-down handles.
Lawnaire® IV with
Easy Steer Technology
The newly redesigned tine assembly allows the user to steer the unit without taking the tines out of the ground.
This is accomplished by designing each tine assembly to independently rotate yet be able to drive.
This translates into higher productivity and less physical stress on the operator because it is easier to use.

The cast iron aeration wheels have eight tines
per wheel standard. Another eight tines can be
installed on the wheel, doubling the amount of
material removed during coring.
Effortlessly connect the Tracaire to a wide variety
of tractors with its durable three-point hitch
configuration.
RENOVAIRE
When the terrain gets tough, the Renovaire®
aerator gets going. This hard-working piece of
equipment is at its best on large, undulating turf
areas such as golf course fairways and roughs.
With each pair of tine wheels mounted independently from the
others, aeration follows the contour of the landscape, providing
unmatched coring precision on undulating surfaces. With six feet of
aerating width and an operating speed of four mph, the Renovaire
is capable of completing three acres in a single hour. Your choice
of coring, spoon or slicing tines penetrate to a depth of up to four
inches. Each weight tray is capable of holding up to 150 pounds,
allowing pristine aeration even in the most heavily compacted soil.
Just attach it to any tractor capable of towing 1,600 pounds and get
ready to conquer the ups and downs of the most challenging surfaces.

RYAN OVERSEEDERS AND
DETHATCHERS. MULTITASKING
HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER.
WHY OVERSEED?
There are two major benefits to overseeding. First, you
ensure your customers’ lawns stay thick and dense.
Second, the new varieties of seed you sow this year
will have better disease resistance than those varieties
already in your customers’ lawns. Overseeding also
makes it much harder for weeds to become established
and compensates for the natural slowdown of the
turf’s reproduction over time or during droughts.
WHY DETHATCH?
Thatch can keep water and air from reaching the soil and,
if left untreated, can create an environment that harbors
pests and diseases. Dethatching removes those layers
of dead grass, roots and debris matted between the
16
soil and the growing grass, keeping the grass greener
and healthier while minimizing the chance of disease.
WHY OVERSEED/DETHATCH WITH RYAN®?
Ryan overseeders and dethatchers combine ultimate
performance with optimal versatility. You can match the
cutting blade, spacing and dethatcher reels with the job and
desired results. Multitasking capabilities allow simultaneous
dethatching and overseeding for increased productivity.
Seeding, depth and attachment options provide optimum
control. All-welded structures and hardened steel shafts
ensure long-lasting satisfaction. And each machine is driven
by a powerful Honda® or Briggs & Stratton® engine.

WHY CUT SOD?
WHY CUT SOD WITH RYAN®?
Sod cutters perform a number of tasks that not
only enhance the quality of the lawn, but also
aid in reducing your labor costs. From lifting sod
for relocation/repositioning to expanding and/
or establishing shrub and flower beds, sod cutters
deliver the precise cut you need. They are especially
useful when removing grass for walkways, patios,
playground areas, irrigation and dog fencing.
Ryan sod cutters are designed to make your turf tasks
as effortless as possible. Your choice of cutting blades
and blade angles allows you to quickly adapt to varying
soil conditions. Easy depth adjustment helps efficiently
select a cutting depth. Responsive handling gives a
true cut with unmatched stability and maneuverability.
A cast-iron gear case and traction drive wheels ensure
responsive cutting in all conditions while also reducing
maintenance. And they’re all powered by the proven
reliability of Honda® and Briggs & Stratton® engines.

Large enough to conquer big jobs yet still easily portable, this
unit is ideal for sod farms and sports fields. It is capable of
cutting and rolling up to three acres of sod a day. No sod cutter
has ever been more user-friendly. Adjust blade depth, change
blade angles and control the handle-mounted throttle all from
the operator’s station. A cutting-depth guide helps ensure
that every adjustment is accurate. For added convenience, an
automatic sod cut-off allows precise cutting from one to six-foot
sod lengths. Want even more efficiency? The available sulky roller
kit allows you to cut and roll at the same time. The only thing
you’ll be rolling up faster than the sod will be your bankroll.

RYAN® ON SOUTHLAND FARMS
Southland Sod Farms has produced and delivered the
finest quality sod since 1976, and we have used RYAN
sod cutters from the beginning. Today we run a fleet of
30 sod cutters 6 days a week. We have experimented
with mechanized harvesters, but they’ll never replace
the Ryan Heavy Duty Sod Cutter here at Southland —
we believe it has played a major role in our success.

Sod Hold Down skids Kit
The Sod Hold Down Kit keeps the sod from buckling and may be necessary
