The Bluebird TA12 Towable Lawn Aerator utilizes the pulling power of your garden tractor to pull the aerator tine
rotors through the soil. For this reason you will need an 18 HP lawn tractor to overcome the resistance of 4' of tines digging

aerator in place. This unit comes with six 5 gallon jugs that you will fill with water to gain an extra 288 lbs. No, you won't
gain this weight - the machine will. The aerator comes with a standard tow bar to fit any lawn tractor. With a 48" wide path,
the Bluebird towable aerator will cover lots of ground in a hurry. Production rates of up to 4 acres per hour can be
achieved. The coring depth is controlled by a crank handle and can be adjusted up to 3" deep. These cores will lay on top of
the ground and gradually break down and disappear within a week. The free wheeling tines let users turn reasonable corners while
