Introduction
Introduction
Land Pride welcomes you to the growing family of new
product owners. This Core Aerator has been designed
with care and built by skilled workers using quality
materials. Proper assembly, maintenance, and safe
operating practices will help you get years of satisfactory
use from this machine.
Application
The Land Pride CA15 Series Core Aerators come in 48",
56", 64" and 72" working widths. They are designed to
attach to the tractor’s 3-Point Category 0, 1 and 1 limited
hitches and are compatible with Land Pride’s QH05 and
QH15 Quick Hitches. They should be attached to tractors
capable of lifting, lowering, and transporting weight up to
750 lbs. on the three-point hitch.
The CA15 Series Core Aerators are designed to relieve
soil compaction and allow air circulation in grassy
surfaces such as lawns, soccer fields, football fields,
baseball fields, municipal parks, and golf course
fairways. They utilize replaceable hardened spring steel
spoons mounted on rotating discs. These spoons pull
cores up to 3" in length from the soil profile every 6 3/16"
of forward travel. The gangs are spaced laterally apart
between 4 1/4" and 4 5/8" with 5 1/2" to 6 1/4" spacing at
the rotary support hangers. Pulled cores are deposited
on the surface for subsequent drying, pulverization, or
removal. Weight can be added to the weight tray to help
achieve maximum spoon penetration.
Terminology
“Right” or “Left” as used in this manual is determined by
facing the direction the machine will operate while in use
unless otherwise stated.
Owner Assistance
The Online Warranty Registration should be completed
by the dealer at the time of purchase. This information is
necessary to provide you with quality customer service.
The parts on your Core Aerator have been specially
designed by Land Pride and should only be replaced with
genuine Land Pride parts. Contact a Land Pride dealer if
customer service or repair parts are required. Your Land
Pride dealer has trained personnel, repair parts, and
equipment needed to service the implement.

Section 3: Operating Instructions
• Follow all directions on the safety labels.
• Lift the unit out of the ground before making sharp
turns. Too sharp a turn with spoons in the ground can
break the spoons.
• Working speeds in excess of 5 mph can damage the
frame and/or spoons.
• Make sure all safety labels are in their proper location
and in good working condition before operation.
• Before working the soil, contact your local utility
services so they can mark the location of any under
ground utility services in the area. Be sure to ask how
close you can work to the marks or flags they
positioned.
• Do not use spoons to tear up asphalt or for anything
other than to aerate soil.
• Do not alter Core Aerator in a way which will
adversely affect its performance or reliability or use the
Core Aerator for a purpose for which it was not designed.
Unhook Core Aerator
The following steps should be done when un-hooking the
Core Aerator from the tractor:
1.
Park tractor and Core Aerator on a solid level surface.
Lower Aerator approximately 6" off the ground. Place
tractor in park or set park brake, shut tractor off, and
remove switch key.
2. See “Parking Stands” on page 8 for information on
adjusting them to the correct height. Lower parking
stands to the correct height and make sure wire
retaining pins are secured in place.
3. Lower tractor’s 3-Point hitch until all weight is off of
tractor.
4. Remove top center hitch pin and store in a safe
location for reuse.
5. Remove lower 3-Point arm hitch pins and bushings.
Store hitch pins and bushings in lower clevises for
reuse.
6. Be sure implement is clear of tractor and then drive
tractor away from implement.
General Operation Instructions
By now you should have read your Operator’s Manual
and properly installed your Land Pride 15 Series Core
Aerator on your tractor. If you haven’t, please do so now.
Using a core type Aerator is a fairly simple task but there
are a few things you need to consider before beginning. If
you are aerating in an area that uses a sprinkler system,
you will need to mark the sprinkler heads with small
warning flags so they can be avoided. You will also need
to be aware of and mark any shallow buried telephone,
TV, or electrical cables, or gas lines. Also you will want to
avoid any sizable rocks or foreign material that might be
embedded in the soil that could cause damage to the
aerating spoons.
Now that you know where you are going to aerate and
what precautions need to be taken, it is time to start the
tractor and travel to the site where you intend to aerate. It
is best to start in the middle of the field and gradually
work your way to the outer perimeter with each pass. This
will help keep you from compressing freshly pulled cores.
Begin by lowering the three-point hitch until the Aerator is
fully on the ground with all the weight off of the tractor. Put
the three-point in float position and pull ahead slowly to
get the spoons into the ground. Gradually increase
ground speed to approximately 5mph. Do not make
sharp turns with the Aerator in the ground as equipment
damage may result. At the end of each pass, lift the
Aerator out and off of the ground until you have realigned
the tractor for the next pass. Look back often to observe
your pattern and to make sure you are getting good soil
penetration. If you aren’t achieving the desired
penetration, you may need to add more weight or wait
until after a rain or after irrigation has been applied to
soften the ground.
Usually allow about twelve to twenty-four hours after
pulling the cores before pulverizing the solid parts left on
the ground with a drag mat. The pulverizing action of the
drag mat breaks up the soil portion of the core which is
redistributed into the undisturbed thatch layer setting off a
microbial action that accelerates thatch breakdown. The
vegetation portion of the core remains on the surface for
debris collection or destruction by a mulching mower.
With very little practice you should become very
proficient and effective with your Land Pride 15 Series
Core Aerator.
At the completion of the aeration task the Aerator should
be washed, cleaned, and lubricated. Any lodged cores
should be cleaned out of the spoons. Units being put up
for the winter should be stored in a dry and well drained
area with the storage stands down.

Maintenance
!
DANGER
Always secure the Core Aerator in the up position with solid
supports before servicing underside of Aerator. Never work
under equipment supported by hydraulics. Hydraulics can
drop equipment instantly if controls are actuated even when
power to the hydraulics is shut off.
Long Term Storage
Clean, inspect, service, and make necessary repairs to
the Core Aerator when parking it for long periods and
when parking it at the end of a working season. This will
help ensure the Core Aerator is ready for field use the
next time you hook-up to it.
1.
Proper servicing and adjustments are key to the long life
of any implement. With careful inspection and routine
maintenance, you can avoid costly downtime and repair.
Check all bolts after using the unit for several hours to be
sure they are tight. Replace any worn, damaged, or
illegible safety labels by obtaining new labels from your
Land Pride dealer.
The parts on your CA15 Series Core Aerator have been
specially designed and should only be replaced with
genuine Land Pride parts. Do not alter the equipment in a
way which adversely affect its performance or reliability.
!
2. Wash Core Aerator surfaces thoroughly with a garden
hose.
3. Inspect Aerator for loose, damaged, or worn parts
and adjust or replace as needed.
4. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. Ask your Land Pride dealer for aerosol
touch-up paint. Paint is also available in touch-up
bottles with brush, quarts, and gallon sizes by adding
TU, QT, or GL to the end of the aerosol part number.
Land Pride Aerosol Touch-up Paint
CAUTION
Do not alter Land Pride equipment or replace parts with other
brands. Doing so can cause equipment to perform improperly
and may lead to breakage that can cause bodily injury.
Replace parts only with genuine Land Pride parts.
Cleaning the Spoons
Clogged spoons reduce the efficiency of the Core
Aerator. Remove dirt and debris that become plugged in
the spoons with a screw driver or any hard pointed object.
To make the job easier, always clean the spoons
immediately after operation.
Remove any dirt and grease that may have
accumulated on the Aerator and moving parts.
Remove dirt and debris that become plugged in the
spoons with a screw driver or any hard pointed
object.
