Even the best cared for lawns can need a helping hand to encourage new growth and revitalise them. The colder months can have a significant impact on turf, grounds and gardens; if not looked after properly, grounds could struggle in spring. A key way of lending lawns a helping hand is through aeration. The days of traditional aerating with a garden fork are gone, particularly for those maintaining larger areas. Plugr aerators from Billy Goat can improve drainage and promote new growth with absolute ease. By making holes throughout the turf, the aerators increase air circulation through the roots, helping to restore lawns to their perfect green condition and creating healthy grass growth and stronger turf.
The Plugr aerator range consists of two models, each available with the choice of two petrol engines. These are the PL1800 (with either a 205cc Briggs & Stratton engine, or a 118cc Honda engine), or the PL2500 (with a 163cc Honda engine, or a 196cc Honda/Hydro Drive).
The PL1800 has an 18” working width, along with four tines and weighs just 109kg. It is ideal for smaller properties or rental scenarios, and places cores 2.75” deep and aerates 22,000 square feet per hour. It has an easy folding handle that allows for compact use, transportation and storage.
The PL2500 is suited for more intense usage on larger areas. It has a 25” working width and eight reciprocating cam driven tines that punch to core depths of 2.75”. It can deliver aeration to up to 42,500 square feet per hour.
The Plugr machines complement Billy Goat’s turf maintenance range that consists of sodcutters, overseeders and power rakes, all designed to provide customers with the most innovative, productive, simple to service and easy to use line up of turf renovation equipment in the industry.
Prices of the Plugr aerators start from £2439.99 including VAT.
