Reciprocating: 25" Wide Hydro Drive
Honda and Briggs and Stratton engine

For the best combination of productivity, operator comfort, superior aeration results, variable hole density and remarkably low maintenance in its class, consider our 25" / 64 cm Hydro-Drive aerator. The unit can aerate up to 4.000m2 per hour. Best in class controls offer the same intuitive, variable speed fingertip hydro-drive innovation as found on the reliable Billy Goat hydrodrive Brush Cutter, Overseeder and Sod Cutter.

The Patent Pending EZ Drop™ tine system has a one-step tine engagement lever from the handle that quickly engages tines when the lever is depressed or disengages tines when the lever is released to pass over obstacles in the aeration path for uninterrupted aeration. It also features "in-ground" steering for unmatched maneuverability, ergonomics, ease of turning, improved production, reduced downtime and turf repair when compared to drum aerators.

This PL2501SPV self propelled aerator is powered by a 203cc Vanguard® engine.

Depressing the orange tine lever releases the tines from the lifted locked position and engages the tining action. When the tine engagement handle is released, tining action stops and the tines drag across obstacles in the aeration path for uninterrupted aeration and increased productivity.
