TurnAer 4 Aerator, Turfco Direct, Minneapolis, Minn.
Turfco Direct has once again raised the bar for aerator maneuverability and ease-of-use with its TurnAer 4 model.
The TurnAer 4 features Turfco’s Diff-drive with dual braking action, which allows aerator turning without stopping, with the tines in the ground. In tests, the Diff-drive system increased productivity by up to 30 percent when compared to conventional aerators.
The TurnAer 4 handles much like a trim mower, allowing unsurpassed mobility when aerating around landscaping features. Plus, because less lifting is involved, operators can productively aerate for longer periods of time.
The TurnAer design was developed with the input of Turfco’s professional landscape customers nationwide. Because customers work directly with the manufacturer at Turfco Direct, their needs helped shape the performance criteria for the TurnAer. Since no test conditions can truly mimic real-world commercial use, this customer testing and evaluation process helped speed the TurnAer 4 through prototyping and into production, allowing Turfco Direct to quickly offer this aeration innovation to all of its customers.
The TurnAer is innovative because it dramatically reduces the time and effort associated with turf aeration. Unlike traditional walk-behind aerators, the TurnAer allows corners to be turned with the aeration tines in the ground, which greatly increases aeration speed and worker productivity. Plus, because customers deal directly with the manufacturer with Turfco Direct, they are supported by a team whose singular focus is meeting their renovation equipment needs.
