XT5 Aerator from Turfco

Turfco is pleased to introduce our new XT5 Aerator to the Lawncare industry. The XT5 will be formally introduced at the GIE show in Louisville KY Oct 28-29th. Please stop by and find out more information about this extension of the TurnAer line of Aerators from TURFCO.

We hope to see you at the show.

For those who are unable to attend we will be sending out information after we launch the unit at the GIE show next week.

Regards,
George Kinkead

Keep your tines down and your profits up—Introducing the patented
TurnAer™ XT5 steerable and reversible aerator.

Turfco revolutionized aeration with TurnAer™ aerators by allowing you to turn while you aerate. The new TurnAer XT5 continues the revolution by utilizing Turfco’s patented, steerable aerator technology with a new, hydrostatic drive system. Now you can turn and reverse while you aerate. The XT5 also features new EasyChange™ tines, dramatically reducing the amount of time required to change tines. A removable tine cover helps speed up tine changing and cleaning. The XT5 also advances aerator durability with a low-profile design and rugged, unibody steel frame. And instead of belts, the XT5 uses drive chains that are covered and located outside of the frame for long-lasting, trouble-free operation.

FEATURES
  • Turn and reverse while you aerate for easier, more productive aeration, especially on heavily landscaped lawns with hard-to-reach areas
  • Fits through 36-inch gate
  • Fingertip controls for easy forward-and-reverse operation
  • Optimized weight bar placement for maximum tine penetration
  • Unique tine-wheel design combined with a hydrostatic drive make the XT5 your best choice for aerating on hills

We did not work together. Actually we were working with differential drive machines as long as 8 / 10 years ago . It just happens that the box is one of the best and strongest ways to house an aerator, with or without a Diff / Drive. It will also out last a pipe or tube steel welde frame like some aerators have. Therefore you get a similiar apprearance but there are a great many differences.
