Important Safety Information
These are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products described in
this manual.
Tire Safety
▲ Tire changing can be dangerous
and should be performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
▲ When inflating tires, use a clip-on
chuck and extension hose long
enough to allow you to stand to
one side and NOT in front of or
over the tire assembly. Use a
safety cage if available.
▲ When removing and installing
wheels, use wheel handling
equipment adequate for the
weight involved.
2
Transport
Machinery Safely
▲ Comply with state and local laws.
▲ Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity.
▲ Secure equipment towed on a
trailer with tie downs and chains.
▲ Sudden braking can cause a trailer
to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if trailer is not equipped with
brakes.
▲ Avoid contact with any over head
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
▲ Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
Use A Safety Chain
Practice Safe Maintenance
▲ A safety chain will help control
drawn machinery should it
separate from the tractor drawbar.
▲ Use a chain with the strength
rating equal to or greater than the
gross weight of the towed
machinery.
▲ Attach the chain to the tractor
drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only
enough slack in the chain to
permit turning.
▲ Do not use safety chain for towing.

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 25 Series Core Aerators are designed for
Category 1 - three-point hitch or Quick-Hitch System
mounting. The 25 Series Core Aerators are adapted for
attachment to tractors capable of properly lifting,
lowering, and transporting up to 1200 lbs. on the threepoint hitch. These Aerators come in 60" and 72" working
widths.
The 25 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. The 25
series Aerators utilize replaceable case hardened closed
spoons mounted on weighted rotating discs. These
spoons pull cores up to 3" in length from the soil profile
every 7" of forward travel. The lateral gang spacing on the
CA256 is 5 1/2" and 6 1/2" on the CA2572. Pulled cores
are deposited on the surface for subsequent drying,
pulverization, or removal. In order to achieve maximum
penetration the CA2560 & CA2572 offer optional poly
water tanks that fit in the top mounted weight trays. When
filled with water these tanks provide significantly
increased down pressure on the spoons.
When your turf begins to suffer the effects of compaction
and wear, such as shallow root zones, thatch build-up,
worn pathways, rock hard ground, poor surface
percolation, or water stands, a Land Pride 25 Series Core
Aerator will help provide seasonal relief.
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.

!
CAUTION
Compact Tractors
Attach 3-point lower arms to the lower clevis holes
with 7/8" diameter hitch pins.
(7/8" hitch pins are furnished with Aerator.)
5. Secure tractor’s top center link to the Aerator’s top
hitch using a 3/4" diameter hitch pin.
(3/4" top hitch pin is supplied by customer.)
6. Raise park stands up and secure in working position.
See “Parking Stands” on page 9
7.
Always engage parking brake, shut off tractor and remove key
before dismounting from tractor to hook-up equipment.
IMPORTANT: You could loose steering control if
your tractor is too light. Refer to your tractor’s
manual to determine if additional ballast is needed.
Refer to Figure 2-1:
1. If installed, remove 3-point stabilizing equipment to
allow Aerator to float over the ground and to help
reduce side loading on the spoons.
2. Move drawbar fully forward. (Towards front of tractor)
3. Slowly back tractor up to Core Aerator until tractor’s
lower 3-point links are aligned with Aerator’s lower
hitch clevises.
Return to the tractor and slowly operate controls up
and down to check for clearance between Core
Aerator, tractor tires, frame and drawbar. Move or
remove drawbar if it interferes with Aerator.
Quick Hitch Hook-Up
Refer to Figure 3-1 on page 11:
Land Pride’s Model QH15 Quick hitch fits the Core
Aerator’s Cat. I hitch. If using a compact tractor that
cannot lift the Aerator high enough for transport, move
7/8" hitch pins and Quick Hitch bushing to the lowest
holes in the 3-point clevises. The Upper J-hook of the
Quick Hitch will need to be adjusted vertically to
accommodate center hook-up. Other brands that do not
have an adjustable J-hook may not fit when using the
lowest 3-point hitch holes.
NOTE: Supplied with the Core Aerator are two
lower bushing for hooking-up to the implement with
a Quick-hitch. Do not use the lower bushings when
connecting directly to the tractor’s 3-point arms.

2. Without starting the tractor, lower tractor’s 3-point
hitch until all weight is off of tractor.
3. Rotate level 90 degrees and place across end of
mainframe. Adjust tractor’s top center link until
mainframe is level from front to back.
Transporting
!
CAUTION
When traveling on public roads at night or during the day, use
accessory lights and devices for adequate warning to
operators of other vehicles. Comply with all federal, state and
local laws.
1.
Select a safe ground speed when transporting from
one area to another.
2. Be sure to reduce tractor ground speed when turning
and leave enough clearance so the equipment does
not contact obstacles such as buildings, trees or
fences.
3. Always raise Core Aerator up before traveling on
public roadways.
4. When traveling on roadways, transport in such a way
that faster moving vehicles may pass you safely.
5. Shift to a lower gear when traveling over rough or hilly
terrain.
1.
Park tractor and Core Aerator on a solid level surface.
Lower Aerator until 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 9 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. Without starting tractor, lower tractor’s 3-point hitch
until all weight is off of tractor.
4. Remove center hitch pin. Store hitch pin in a safe
location for reuse.
5. Remove lower hitch pins. Store lower hitch pins in
lower clevises for reuse.
6. Be sure implement is clear of tractor and then drive
tractor away from implement.
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 that the Aerator is ready for field use next
time you hook-up to it.
1.
Clean off any dirt and grease that may have
accumulated on the Core Aerator. Scrape off
compacted dirt. Clean out cores lodged in the spoon.
See “Cleaning the Spoons” on page 15.
2. When finished cleaning and scraping dirt and grease
off, wash the surfaces thoroughly with a garden hose.
3. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. A coating of oil may also be applied to
the spoon to minimize oxidation.
4. Replace all damaged or missing decals.
5. Store the Core Aerator inside if possible. Inside
storage will reduce maintenance and make for a
longer Aerator life.
6. Inspect Core Aerator for loose, damaged or worn
parts and adjust or replace as needed.

Section 3: Operating Instructions
General Operation Instructions
By now you should have read your Operator’s Manual
and properly installed your Land Pride 25 Series Core
Aerator on your tractor. If you haven’t, please do so now.
Using the Core 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. 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 spoon. Most important, do not work over
underground electrical wiring or gas lines.
!
With very little practice you should become very
proficient and effective with your Land Pride 25 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 also have water drained from the
weight tanks and storage stands should be put in place.
Store in a dry and well drained area.
DANGER
Do not work over any underground electrical wiring or gas
lines. If there is any doubt, call your public service agency. Be
sure to ask how close you can work to their flags or marks.
Making contact with electrical wiring or gas pipes can cause
serious injury or death.
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 also 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
softened 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.

Maintenance
Cleaning the Spoons
General
The spoons should be cleaned immediately after
operation for easier cleaning.
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.
After using the unit for several hours, check all bolts to be
sure they are tight.
The spoons can get plugged with dirt or debris. This can
be removed with the use of a tool such as a screw driver
or any hard pointed object. Clogged spoons reduce the
efficiency of the Core Aerator.
Replace any worn, damaged or illegible safety labels by
obtaining new labels from your Land Pride Dealer.
!
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.
