Aerators and tines

Replacing the Aercore 800, and designed to increase productivity and efficiency compared with traditional units, John Deere's A40 and V40 PrecisionCore pedestrian aerators are for use on golf greens and other fine-turf areas.

Each has a patented articulating frame to deliver more consistent hole-depth on undulating terrain and operators can now change hole-spacing while on the move. The aerators also feature a tighter turning circle and are available with an optional verticutter attachment. The operator's station is redesigned to provide easier control as well as reduced levels of handlebar vibration.

To match the performance standards of the new aerators, John Deere has also launched a range of Precision Tines. The solid tines start as single raw solid alloy rods, which are then machined for precision. Hollow-top and side-eject tines start out as hollow alloy tubes and are formed to provide a smoother interior and exterior surface for easier ground penetration and reduced blocking.
