DJ Turfcare Equipment introduce Linear Aerator

By Lance Bassett

Industry stalwart David Jenkins formed DJ Turfcare Equipment Limited in 2002 with a view to providing the turf professional with a top class range of products under one banner.

Linear aerators provide a deep vertical cutting action, removing excessive root and leaf tissue, stimulating vigorous growth with negligible disruption to any playing surface. This led David and his team to search for such a machine to add to their portfolio.

Not being able to find a linear aerator that filled their criteria, the company decided to design and build their own.


The machine can aerate, scarify, groom and sweep using interchangeable cartridges all mounted on a heavy-duty chassis, with further heads being made available in due course.

Cartridges can be easily changed in less than five minutes by the use of a special tool provided with the machine. Possession of the tool also makes unauthorised attempts at changing the work head impossible.DJLACloseup.jpg

The machines also features user-friendly electric lift and lower facility and advanced anti-vibration handle bar mountings, providing precision steering with minimum vibration. Advanced safety skirts around the blades are standard.

Power is from an electric start 17.5hp Briggs & Stratton Intek engine with the latest anti-vibration system and hydrostatic drive means maximum manoeuvrability,

With a working width of 510mm (21in), the aerating head has 17 specially heat treated blades with tungsten carbide tips that can reach a depth of 50mm (2in.)

The DJ Linear Aerator offers the best of both worlds with a heavy-duty robust machine that is stylish and well engineered.
