Why Buy an Agri-Fab, Inc. 16-Inch Push Spike Aerator?
The Agri-Fab 16-Inch Push Spike Aerator will have your lawn looking better in no time. The 5 steel spikes will help aerate and loosen the soil to allow air, water, and nutrients to reach the root system. The best time to aerate your lawn is in the spring, because it opens up the compacted soil brought on by cold winters. This will allow your lawn to grow strong and healthy, giving your lawn that professionally groomed look that you have been wanting.
- The spike aerator has 5 steel spike disks to penetrate the soil easily.
- Each spike disk on the push aerator has a 2.5” aeration depth.
- The 16” working width is ideal for smaller lawns and hard-to-reach places.
- The Spike Aerator with 35 lb. capacity weight tray easily increases soil penetration.

As far as using the device, I started with the only size concrete block I could find in Home Depot that made sense from the dimensions of the top plate. I found that pulling it was nowhere as effective as pushing it. I live in NC, so it's clay under the sod. I found pushing with my arms higher than at the waist level more comfortable and effective (I am 6' and 72 years old). My lawn isn't always level, so starting from a level spot (backing up and getting a running start) helped me get past the dips and whatnot. Needless to say, I felt the workout that evening in my upper arms and back. ;-)
Overall, I am pleased with the device. A couple of runs over the lawn and I was satisfied that I had done a reasonable job aerating the lawn.
First off I used a power ratchet/sockets and crescent wrenches to assemble ranging from 10 - 13 mm and yes the instructions are minimal but if you organize and layout the parts and screws before hand it will make sense.
Picture shows 1 washer per side for tine shaft --- Use 2 and then install the locking pin.
8 larger screws with nylocks to mount the base to the side plates that hold the tines in place
4 smaller screws with nylocks to mount the curved handle to the side plates
4 wingnut screws to attach the handle pieces
30lb cement block on a moist but not overly wet/muddy lawn. Basically 1 day after a gentle rain. Tines wend all the way into the soil but did not get bogged down from being overly wet.
It's a hell of a workout. Pulling does not get the same results with 30lbs of weight. You need to push at a certain angle to get the tines all the way down. Problem is I'm 6'2" so that angle meant the handle needed to be pushed at knee level.
Most of my lawn is on a slope so pulled up (no result) and pushed down (good result) with the help of gravity.
On the level part of my lawn you basically get it rolling and don't stop. Use momentum to get it from point A to B.
Unit handle can definitely be longer. One more set of extension would have been great to allow the user shorten or lengthen according to height. I'll definitely engineer some repurposed lawnmower parts for next time.
Handle tubing could be a little sturdier.
Instruction could be better.
Overall it worked but my back and arms are a little sore so be prepared for a good workout. Skip the gym and do your lawn. LOL
