The new Classen RA-21 reciprocating aerator addresses the main issues associated with reciprocating aerators: limited aeration swath, difficulty of use and maintenance and the high price of reciprocating tine machines.
The Classen offers a wide 21-inch aeration swath with eight tines that penetrate even the toughest soil, punching clean, deep holes up to 2¾" (69.8mm) deep. The core tines reciprocate at 450 revolutions per minute to cover up to 26,000 sq.ft. per hour, which is a fraction of the time taken with a drum style unit. As with all Classen turf care products the RA-21 adheres to the core values of the brand, being easy to use and designed to last.
Simplicity is built in with an open design allowing clear access to the engine and the rust resistant tine shield is lightweight and easy to remove for access to the tines and drive belt. The operator controls are simple because the Classen doesn't use hydraulics to independently drive the tines.
Featuring pneumatic tyres, it drives and turns like a 21" walk behind mower and its light weight makes it easy to manoeuvre and lift for transportation. The narrow 80.01cm (31.5") width easily fits through gates and a folding handle allows for storage in tight spots.
