We tested the aerators to find out how they ranked in a variety of areas. From durability to horse power requirements to actual soil fracture depths.

What we tested:

  • Durability
  • Weight
  • Working Speed
  • Repair Costs
  • Horse Power Requirement
  • Soil Fracture Depth
  • Product Lifetime

How We Tested Them

Pasture Aeration has been proven to be effective in raising grass yields and renovating older pastures. However, with varying styles of aerators it can be hard to know which one will work best for your situation. Aeration has to be used under the right circumstances in order to be effective. If used incorrectly it can have negative effects on your land that can persist for many years.

In order to do our testing, we followed the manufacturer guidelines on when and how to use the implements. From the right weather to the right horsepower, we attempted to follow the factory guidelines as best we could. These companies offer Aerators in a variety of widths, so we tried to choose the most common width that they all shared. For our test we chose Aerators in around a 10 foot width, with working widths from 8 foot to 9 foot.

We tested these Aerators on a South Texas Pasture that hadn't been grazed in ten years. The land suffered from really bad soil compaction due to over grazing. The land had grass growth of less than 20%, and had been over run in areas with mesquite and prickly pear.
