Does what it says on the tin

Hard physical work but works as expected as long as soil isn't too most.
Dreadful , broke within minutes

Like many other reviews here, mine broke within minutes, barely covered a couple of metres and bent over at an angle. Should be withdrawn from sale.

Absolutely disgusting that they charge you for this. First 4 or 5 push ins worked and ejected but then it clogged up. Removed all dirt from tines and tried again and it clogged up again and again and again. Once clogged you are just compacting your dirt further so this tool makes your lawn in worse condition than before you started. If you have Sandy compacted soil it may work but then a solid tine would be needed anyway so again, a waste of money. Utter junk, might as well use a fork which incidentally, would do a better job than this. Why didn’t I read the reviews before buying, might as well have burnt £15 but then again, my fault, what did I expect from b and q, quality? FYI, a proper tine would be wider at the top than the cutting edge and would be open on the front so it does not jam up. Methinks a redesign is required on this one. I came, I saw, I tried it, I threw it away.
Poor manufacture lets it down

I agree with other reviews that you need to use some force to push the compacted soil etc through the tine tubes, and even then it needs a bit of pokiong and scraping out every so often, but was working well for about a quarter of the lawn before one of the welds broke, leaving the whole thing unstable and impossible to use. Took it back to B&Q, got a refund, bought another but selecting the one that looked to have the strongest welds. First use a couple of weeks later, and after lots of rain, so the lawn was quite soft, first push into the lawn and the weld broke! Aaaargh! It will have to go back for a refund and I shall look for somethiung else.I think it's a good product, just poorly manufactured.
Works a Treat

If you water your lawn first, and use a good bit of force (the force is what drives out the compacted soil within the aerator), this does the job no problem at all. Was almost put-off by all the negative reviews but no problems at all and looking forward to using again.
