Q: Will this work with a Cub Cadet riding mower?
by Maureen Alston from Massachusetts on March 25, 2014

A: Thank you for contacting Mowers direct, you can use this aerator on your mower but I would recommend checking the towing capacity of your mower to make sure you do not do any damage to the mower itself.

The Ohio Steel 42CPA core plug aerator easily handles aerating jobs at your home or other property. Aerating helps to reduce soil compaction, which it turn allows important nutrients to reach your lawn's roots.

The Ohio Steel 42CPA has a very simple design that aerates a 42-inch path with 32 core points. You'll pull out 8 plugs per square foot - a pattern that is ideal for helping maintain a healthy looking lawn.

The Ohio Steel 42CPA also has a lever that let's you engage and disengage... more

Wow!
I purchased this aerator, and I think it came in 2 days. I did turn the nuts and bolts around in the plug, that took the longest time otherwise it went together quickly. Then I aerated, and it took about 45 minutes. I'm very Happy with it! Thanks!

Aerator
Washers were too small on main rod and some other washers and pin missing. The clip that holds the pin in the hitch was too brittle and broke when I tried to clip it. Called customer service twice and left messages for two weeks but still haven't heard back.

Haven't used the product yet.

Handyman Special
If you want bullet proof, simply add angle irons to the box, replace every plastic part with cut pipe pieces to sleeve over the shaft, add a washer next to every moving part.

Now this unit is ready to abuse and can handle around 75 lbs of weight if needed. If you're not handy, spend another hundred or two for a less plastic model.

The Frame Is Very Weak
I was able to use this 1 time, and it did a great job with the core plugs. However, the frame bent on both ends and needs to be welded and repaired before it can be used again. was not a happy customer at all... poorly built

Aerator Performance
Exceptional - Very Durable!

When I first pulled it across the hard dry lawn a number of the points did not penetrate very well - Yet there was no damage! Once we had the next rain the points penetrated quite well and I'm sure the grass will be taking oxygen, water and fertilizer much better than before we had purchased the Ohio Steel from Mowers Direct!

I was very surprised at how well the aerator tracked and was able to maneuver so well around tight turns when I used the unit for the... more

Only used once and the main frame is already folding up. The only weight I have in it is 4 landscaping blocks. Don't waste your money.

Junk!
Purchased new in April 2014. Claims 140lb weight capacity. First time I used it with 110lbs of weight, the bearings that separate the tine assemblies ground smooth allowing the assemblies to move side to side on the axle and collide. The bearings are PVC! So I contacted Ohio steel and they sent new ones.

Took all apart and replaced them. Used it today for only the second time, this time with about 100lbs of weight. Did my whole yard (1 acre) and as I was finishing, the tine assemblies... more

I am sorry to hear you are dissatisfied with the Ohio Steel Core Plug Aerator you purchased. I will let Ohio Steel know the unit does not work efficiently with the weight load it lists it is rated for. I appreciate your review and apologize once again for this not working as you intended.

Compact Areator
Purchased the Ohio Steel Aerator and had a little difficulty in assembling it. Mostly related to figuring out the wheel placement for proper function but after disassembling and reassembling a few times, I finally got the hang of it.

The until requires just the right amount of weight and soil moisture to work properly but with the right combination it works really nice. Good purchase.

Works Great Bit Came With Wrong Manual.
Aereator came with wrong manual so putting it together was a challenge. Tried to email supplier but got no reply from them.

Used approx 130 lbs of weight after good rain on my yard and it did a great job.
