1.Park machine safely. (See towing vehicle manual).

2.Align aerator clevis (A) with towing machine drawbar.

3.Install drawbar pin (B) through clevis and machine drawbar. Secure drawbar pin with Hairpin Cotter (C).

REMOVING AERATOR

CAUTION: Avoid injury! Keep body parts away from under drawbar. Do not attempt to disconnect aerator from towing vehicle with weight on the tray.

1.Secure towing vehicle parking brake. (See towing vehicle manual).

2.Place Aerator in the Transport Position

3.Unload aerator tray.

CAUTION: Avoid injury! Keep body parts away from under drawbar. Do not attempt to disconnect aerator from towing vehicle with weight on the tray.

4.Remove cotter pin and drawbar pin.

5.Push aerator away from towing vehicle.

6.Install drawbar pin and cotter pin to towbar for storage.

OPERATING

CAUTION: Avoid injury! Avoid damage to tines. Engage the transport wheels when crossing concrete or asphalt driveways and walkways.

Excessive towed load can cause loss of control on slopes. Stopping distance increases with speed and weight of towed load.

Total towed weight must not exceed combined weight of towing vehicle, ballast and operator.

USING THE WEIGHT TRAY

The following maximum loaded weight capacity is the weight of the aerator plus the weight loaded in the tray:.

Model

Weight Capacity

SAT 40BH

42 lbs. (Empty)

 

150 lbs (Max Load).

 

192 lbs Max Towed Weight

.

CAUTION: Avoid injury! Keep body parts away from under drawbar. Do not attempt to disconnect aerator from towing vehicle with weight on the tray.

Towing capacity will vary with weight of towing vehicle and operator. Add the weight of your machine to operator weight to find the maximum capacity for towing.

DEPTH/PENETRATION

Weight should be added to the tray after installing to the towing machine. Weight should be secured by rope, straps, or other 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 90° will improve the aeration effect.

The aerator may be used in an independent operation or may be used when mowing your lawn.
