Petrol lawn aerators - which are the best options?

Due to diversification, have recently been looking at petrol lawn aerators - a quick search on here throws up a handful of threads.

Wondered what the current thinking of best models was?

Ideally working width of around 18" and ability to interchange between hollow and solid tines would be useful.

Sisis have produced many different models over the years with spares being or becoming a headache for lots of them....

Other options include Groundsman and Plugger - anyone have or use any of these?

  • We hire out the Groundsman 345HD aerator, it survives hire well so it's definitely durable! Has handy features to make it easier to transport, like a folding handlebar. Total width is 32", working width 18", and can be used with solid and hollow tines, and there are a range of quick change tine holders for different layouts (e.g. cluster). The Groundsman website page on the model is here:

    If you want the option to have interchangable heads it will limit your options, what is the end use for this machine?

    Bowling / golf greens or Lawns or both?

    I bought the plugger and use it mostly for lawns.

    5 mins to swap the heads around, narrow so it fits through most garden gates, easy to turn and get into tight spaces, cheap to run and maintain.

        The toro procore is unmistakeably the best on the market
