Yes, the Hooker aerator still works pretty well in hard clay soil. The original aerator was developed in Georgia.

Sure, if it's really really dry you may not get full depth but it does surprisingly well since it is has the "hooking" tines and isn't soley dependent on down pressure. The Hooker, in general, does better in somewhat dry conditions. No need to have a watered, saturated lawn before you aerate.

I won't make the claim that you can aerate concrete.

Good question.

It really depends on your soil and how much you aerate. e.g. sandy soil will wear the tines down more quickly. But tines typically can last multiple seasons. Usually if you're going to break a tine, it would happen from hooking around a tree root just right. However, in most instances the individual head will pop up and roll over it.

Let me know if you have more questions. Maybe call or email me as I'm not intending to threadjack here.

Thanks,
Bill
