The secret to lawn success

The secret to lawn success: The secret to lawn success is to ensure it has all the right nutrients, it is after all a plant. One of the best ways to help deliver these is to aerate the lawn and allow the nutrients to be able to get to the soil underneath the surface. This will also allow air and water to circulate through any thatch or built up grass that have gathered.

The Billy Goat range of Plugr aerators enables grounds professionals, landscapers and contractors to be able to tackle large areas of lawn quickly and easily. Plugr aerators offer the perfect solution to promoting spring growth.  They can improve drainage and encourage new growth by making holes throughout the turf that breaks up compacted soil and allows air, water and nutrients to circulate through the roots. This results in healthier, stronger roots, grass and turf.

The Plugr aerator range has two series of machines. The 18 series and the 25 Series.

Within the 18 Series sits the PL1802V and the PL1801H. Both have an 18” working width so are ideal for smaller grounds. They have four tines that place cores 2.75” deep and aerate 22,000 square feet per hour. They have an easy-folding handle that allows for compact use, transportation and storage, aided by the fact that they weigh only 109kg so are easy to steer without lifting. There are two engine options available. The PL1802V has a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 205cc engine. The PL1801H is powered by a 118cc Honda engine. Both are self-propelled.

For those seeking a more productive, cost-efficient way of aerating larger areas, the 25 Series is required. It offers the best combination of productivity, comfort and results, whilst boasting intuitive controls, and variable speed fingertip hydro-drive innovation.

Similar to the 18 Series, the 25 Series also has two engine options. The PL2501SPV is powered by a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 203cc engine, and the PL2501SPH has 196cc Honda engine. The 25 Series is best suited for more intense usage and larger areas. The models have a 25” working width and eight reciprocating cam driven tines that punch to core depths of 2.75”. They can deliver aeration to up to 42,500 square feet per hour.

Billy Goat’s aerators do not require any lifting, add on weights or have any chains, making them easy to operate and less fatiguing than others on the market.

The Billy Goat range of Plugrs is available nationwide through Henton and Chattell’s dealer network. Prices of the Plugr aerators start from £2610 including VAT.
