Product Description

Aerating the lawn reduces compaction that can build up over periods of heavy use such as during in the summer. The aeration increases the flow of moisture to the grass roots as well as helping the roots get the oxygen they need to live and grow healthily. This handy aerator has hollow tines that remove plugs of soil from the ground, allowing air and moisture to penetrate to where they are needed - the roots of the grass. It measures 93cm x 30cm x 4.5cm and weighs just 2.05kg

I have used this to good effect. I was confused when a repeated clogging problem with one tube was evident.
If clay is hard and lodged inside the tube, just pushing the hole clear is not going to fix this. The Tube has to be clear of clay!
Once cleared and made clean all was working well. This brings be back to the type of soil. On my garden some area's are damper than others with more clay mix in some parts, hence the difficulty I had.
The build quality is good.
I am a heavy strong adult and could push the tool into the soil as required. My big 15 year old son not fat like his dad had difficulty reaching a good depth due to his weight disadvantage.
I made a plug retrieval box with an old cardboard box and sticky tape. You do not have to retrieve the plugs of soil however my grass is near my back door. I did not want the children treading mud into the house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good exercise 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a good piece of kit for small to medium lawns. It is strongly constructed and easy to use. My garden is clay and,therefore, not the easiest to manage. I used it in the spring as, due to the prolonged wet weather over winter I had mostly moss but the effort was worthwhile as i now have the greenest lawn around with lush grass. This was achieved by taking out the plugs of soil (clay) in rows 6 inches apart and sweeping a mixture of 50/50 sharp sand and peat free compost into the holes. I found that it was easier to carry out the work when the soil was quite moist, as the soil slipped through the tines much easier so there was less effort required to push the aerator into the ground. I am 86 so not as fit as I was when I was in my youth but I'll be giving the lawn another go over after scarifying in the autumn. All in all a good well made gardening tool that takes up virtually no space when not in use.

5.0 out of 5 stars It makes holes in the lawn 30 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
The Kingfisher is a sturdy tool, you don't get the feeling it is going to break easily. The tines are sharp and pushing them into a lawn produces neat holes and plugs of earth. Unlike aereting with a fork, the holes are larger and do not close up soon afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars sturdy and easy to use 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase
good quality and excellent value for money. Ideal for smaller lawns. Plugs of soil come out of the hollow tines easily, then brush lawn sand over area to fill.

5.0 out of 5 stars The cheapest is not always the worst! 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
Having read the comments of others relating to similar (green) tools almost twice the price, but also knowing that a bad workman often blames his tools, I was highly sceptical about whether an implement of this sort would work on my heavy wet clay, so opted for this cheaper model. How wrong can you be? It is well made and the welds appear strong after 3 days of use so far.
I have found however, there are precautions to take if you are to be successful and have lots of little soil cores all over the place.
Wear good gardening or riggers gloves, work the tool from side to side not backwards and forwards, have a large bucket of water and a cane ready to clear and clean any persistently blocked tube, oil the tubes with the aid of a small diameter bottle brush + engine/chain/two-stroke oil, but most important of all, keep the tubes sharp with a good flat file. The brush is also useful for thoroughly cleaning the tubes after work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice Try. 22 Feb 2014

Hopeless! It lasted an hour on typical London clay. The build quality looks good, but the welding isn't man enough for the job.

When I first used it, the plugs weren't sliding through very well, but after smoothing off the ragged edges at the points with a round file, it worked excellently.
