Overview

Turfco’s TurnAer™ XT8 stand-on aerator is the solution for turf care professionals who want to increase profitability with hassle-free design. With aeration speed up to 7 mph, the XT8 can cover over two acres in an hour and easily handle residential, commercial and sports turf. The XT8 aerates at a width of 30" yet can still fit through a 48" gate. It features zero-turn agility and with the highest ground clearance in its class to clear curbs with ease.

The patent-pending Auto-Depth Control allows operators to get a consistent tine depth across a property, regardless of turf conditions and without the operator needing to make constant adjustments. Set the depth at the shop and get the same core depth all day long.

Our unique patent-pending design makes chain issues a thing of the past. That's because the XT8 is the only ride-on aerator with drive chains located outside the aeration area so soil and debris can't slow you down. Sealed self-aligning bearings and zero grease zerks make the XT8 easy to maintain. A powerful 22-hp engine with cyclonic air cleaner means you won't slow down when aerating and can take on any terrain. Standing platform suspension reduces vibration and shock for reduced operator fatigue and increased comfort. Get the most out of your aeration season with the XT8.

Testimonials

"We rented a competitor model 2 years ago and bought the XT8 last year and there's no comparison! The XT8 is better built in all areas and is so much easier to use, would highly recommend it to anyone in the lawn business!"

Steve Miles
Hudson, IA

"In our organic lawn care practice, cultural practices play a major role in the success of our work on the lawns. The XT8's versatility, even on smaller lawns ensures profitability in this segment of our work."

Dana Miller
West Kingston, RI

"We have owned other ride on Aerators in the past and the XT8 is by far more reliable. We don’t have any issues with chains coming off and our operators spending more time doing repairs that aeration like we did in the past. We love our new XT8!"

Mark Harpenau
A+ Lawn & Landscape

"Exceeded all expectation! I love the fact it can still do the job with almost no moisture in the soil!"
