4.0 out of 5 stars Tines require clearing constantly:-(, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kingfisher RC401 Pro Gold Lawn Aerator - Red (Garden & Outdoors)
The tool seems well made and sturdy. But as my garden is heavy clay, I found it very hard to dig the aerator in and pull it out again. I tried watering a small section of the lawn at once, as some reviewers said it's easier when the clay is wet. But watering it made little if any difference to the amount of effort required to dig it in and pull it out:-( In fact the partially wet clay seemed to clog the tines up even more than when the ground was only slightly damp, meaning I had to keep unblocking the tines, cleaning them right out and applying oil after every 2-3 actions! Consequently, I gave up after doing about 3 square metres and I think I will wait and see if the lawn in that area shows any improvement before bothering to try and do any more!

26 May 2014: I had another go at using the Hollow Tine Aerator after the last few days of rain - and I have to agree that it definitely was easier to do after the rain had thoroughly penetrated the lawn:-)I also found that turning the aerator upside down after every extraction and banging it on the lawn made most of the slugs of earth fall out, which kept the tines pretty clear:-)
