The only way we can aerate fairways here . The PTO shaft vibrates the tines as the forward motion pushes then through the turf .
Had to replace a few missing bolts . They tend to vibrate out.
One tool... 2 shops . I made this tool by cutting an old socket and welded in an extension so it can go over the tine . The tines will loosen of , so they should be checked daily . I put them on at 250 ft lbs . and only a few loosen off now .
All ready to go . This is one of the late Fall jobs after the course closes .
On our course this is the best way to aerate our fairways . That's John from the crew working the machine . Good guy and easy on the equipment .
