Long cores dig deep into the soil, creating a 1/2" hole with each push. The large foot plate makes it easy to push the aerator into tough and dry soil. Reduces runoff and promotes turf growth. 37" height is easy on the back.
Clay-like soil and mud can clog the aeration holes when aerating a wet lawn.
Spiked sandal shoes fit over many different types of shoes and feet sizes. 13 heavy-duty spikes on each sandal. Easy to put on and off quickly. Heavy-duty spikes dig a few inches into the ground.
The aerator may not be suitable for larger yards since it can take time to cover large surface areas.
Sandal straps are adjustable to fit over a variety of shoe types and sizes. Shoes contain 26 steel spikes all over the bottom to tackle dry and tough soil. Strong metal buckles support your shoes.
The straps can become loose as they move around larger yards.
The aerator uses a series of spikes attached to a spinning wheel you simply push forward. The spikes create a uniform grid as you move the aerator through the yard. Features a three-piece tubular steel handle. Easy to assemble.
The aerator can be difficult to push in dry soil and overgrown lawns that need cutting.
The four-spike design makes it easy to create holes in a grid-like pattern in most yards. Sturdy one-piece design. The aerator is small enough to fit into tight spaces or around objects in a yard.
The four spikes do not cover a lot of surface area and require more time to cover typical lawns.
