Doesn't seem to work
PaulJ53 - 3 years ago
This was an inexpensive purchase and its quality reflects its lack of expense. It just doesn't seem to work properly. Maybe it's the condition of my lawn or maybe an inherent design fault. On my lawn the plugs of soil are not removed by the hollow tines. They just block up and the soil is compacted further.
Not a good buy.
Awful - doesn't work, and broke almost immediately

Avoid this product - it's terrible!
I have only had it five minutes and already it is broken - one of the springs has snapped. It also doesn't work very well. I'm using it after a morning of heavy rain, so the soil is reasonably soft. But the tines simply don't pierce the soil with all of them in place.
So I removed two of the tines. As other people have said, the supplied spanner can't be used on all of the tines. With only 3 of the tines in place, it does pierce the soil, but after literally 5 minutes one of the springs snapped.
So I'm afraid this product really doesn't do the job at all. You're better off hiring a proper petrol-powered hollow tine aerator from a garden machinery rental company, or use a garden fork - stick it in, wiggle it up and down to relieve compaction and then pull out.

Bought this in last month and on receipt tried it unsuccessfully in the garden -even though ground is not summer hard it would go in much more than 1/2 an inch - bit of a waste of money.
does not do what it says on the tin

Is well made and has all the features you could want but, like all of these type, will not work if the soil is too wet or full of clay. When the conditions are right I expect to have good use from this tool.
