3.5 - 4" deep max depending on spike size but the penetration is adjustable by the height of the roller behind the spike drum. (or by the 3 point hitch on the tractor)

Mine weighs +/- 1000 so it gets full penetration even in the hard dry soil.

With a heavy rain after the aeravation you can see and feel just how soft the ground becomes -- huge difference

Uneven ground works too it pivits back and forth and side to side.
