The JRCO Hooker
Aerator is designed for the lawn care professional. It saves time and labor with
high-production aeration. Aerate 66,000 square feet per hour at 5 mph.
The 38-inch wide Hooker Aerator punctures up to six holes per square foot. Holes
are approximately 1/2" wide by 1-1/4" long and up to 3" deep. Tines pierce deep
into the soil, hooking and lifting loose plugs of dirt that disperse quickly,
spreading nutrients over the surface. No unsightly hard plugs accumulate on the
lawn. The lifting action of the tines prevents soil compaction that is common
with hollow tine aerators and allows good filtration of air and water into the
Each of the three caster assemblies has two floating cast iron tine rotor heads.
The casters swivel, allowing turning while aerating. The six floating rotor
heads independently lift over tree roots and rocks while the other heads
continue to aerate.
The front-mount aerator attaches to the JRCO mount bar with two clevis pins. An
electric actuator lifts the heads for transport.
