Aerators

Edwards Agricultural Supplies have available robust, efficient engineered Air-Rators for sale or hire. Designed to relieve all the problems known to arise through soil compaction, our aerators are available with both fixed width and folding arm designs. Careful consideration to each and every part and feature enables the EAS Air-Rator to give you years of service and value for money. Bespoke designs are available if you think you want something slightly out of the ordinary.

We have a number of Air-Rators available for hire from 1 - 4.5m wide and we frequently have refurbished machines available for sale which we refurbish to incorporate Edwards Agricultural Supplies expert design for reliability and longevity. We also stock a range of replacement blades for various manufacturers. 

Truly compacted soil will contain very little oxygen, which in turn will reduce the aerobic bacterial activity within the soil. This will have a direct impact on the number and quality of roots as well as increasing the risk of rainfall runoff and watercourse pollution.

When the soil is aerated the oxygen content increases, opening up the structure of the soil and allowing it to breath. This in turn will increase microbiological activity and worm population resulting in an expansion of root mass. The subsequent increase in root growth will reduce poaching and sod pulling.

Did You Know?

  • Aerating grassland can increase potential grazing by 4 weeks! Saving £££
  • The Soil will warm up quicker in the Spring encouraging new growth 2 weeks before compacted land
  • The Soil will retain heat in Autumn allowing grass to continue in growth for a further 2 weeks
  • Aerating soil increases slurry uptake and reduces the need for the addition of NPK! Saving £££
  • Aerating helps free up bound iron
  • Aerating soil increases rainfall absorption and reduces watercourse pollution
  • Aerating soil prevents soil erosion and helps diffuse water pollution.

The Reduction and Prevention of Agricultural Diffuse Pollution (England) Regulations 2018 state: You must ensure you prevent livestock compacting soil by trampling it (poaching) within five metres of inland freshwater or coastal water.

Edwards bespoke Air-Rators are the most efficient implements for relieving compaction in grassland and deliver:

  • Increased grassland productivity
  • Better utilisation of slurry
  • Reduced expenditure on NPK
  • Lower carbon footprint
