    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.
