For those with larger properties looking for a great value pasture aerator, look no further than the BM360-AG.
The 3.6m width, combined with the high tine density - a total of 16 tine hubs with 4 tines each- allows you to cover a lot of ground faster!
The BM360-AG Ground-Hog is a heavy-duty model manufactured for fast and effective aeration. The tine shaft is able to be adjusted from 0 to 5 degrees in 2½ degree increments. All Ground-Hog aerators have 4 tines per row resulting in 25% more aeration than other brands.
Manufactured here in NZ, Ground-Hog aerators come in a range of widths from 1.5m to 3.6m and wider - contact us to discuss your requirements.
Ideal for dairy farmers and livestock farmers with larger properties, this machine effectively aerates the ground, with the lean and twist on the tines lifting and shattering the soil profile. The improved aeration allows air and vital nutrients deeper into the root zone, driving root depth lower and improving yields.
The 0-5 degrees manual adjustment on the shaft allows you to aerate in a range of soil moisture conditions - the larger the shaft angle the more aggressive the aeration. The lean and twist combines with the shaft angle to increase the disturbance to the soil.
Compared to a subsoiler, on 0 degrees the Ground Hog aerator leaves very minimal surface disturbance - you can put your stock in the same paddock soon after aeration. The rolling action and high tine density of 4 tines per row means there is no ridging or disturbance created by the Ground-hog.
The rolling tine action of the Groundhog requires a lot less pulling than a subsoiler or leg aerator, reducing horsepower consumption and increasing speed. Since you can get the job done faster, the aerator can get used more often, improving the overall performance of your farm!
