Turf Pride Soil remediation tool The one-pass design of the Earth & Turf linear aerator changes and improves the structure of soils for healthier turf. Soil and thatch restriction are permanently modifi ed. Maximum modifi cation of turf on athletic fi elds is assured. Used after the area has been topdressed with calcined clay, compost or sand, the linear aerator conditions a 58-inch swath by cutting grooves in the turf 3 inches deep, ap- proximately one half inch wide and 3.5 inches apart. Aggressive, reverse-spiral-mounted teeth cut the grooves and bring both soil and topdressing material up over the rotor. The blended materials are then brushed back into the grooves by steel fi ngers on a fi ller bar, which reciprocates side to side. Linear aeration can reduce sports in- juries by softening turf on athletic fi elds and arenas. Linear Aeration improves water infi ltration and retention, turf and root growth, nu- trient absorption and organic decomposition. The 1,035-lb. machine is designed to fi t the Category I 3-point hitches of tractors with 35 to 45 PTO horsepower.
