The Javelin Aer-Aid machine is a specially designed tractor mounted vertical action aerator for use on both fine and outfield turf.

The machine can be used all year round due to the large selection of tines helping to break up compaction allowing water, air and nutrients to penetrate the root zone.

Consistent use helps to produce a surface that is less affected by the adversities of weather conditions leaving minimal disturbance.

The Aer-Aid system injects air directly into the root zone speeding up the aeration process, moving air uniformly throughout the root zone for complete aeration – not just where the tines have penetrated.

The cam trigger mechanism ensures that the air is always expelled at the bottom of the tine penetration enabling treatment to be targeted precisely.

STRI trials demonstrated the Aer-Aid system:

  • Significantly reduces surface and soil compaction
  • Increased water infiltration rates
  • Manages soil based issues
  • Enhances root development
  • Helps to limit turf damage caused by disease when integrated in a management programme

  • Fast forward speed for excellent productivity
  • Quiet in operation
  • When working at 75mm (3”) spacing air is introduced at a rate of 88 litres (3cu.ft) per minute
  • The air injection tines are specially designed to use the maximum air available from the compressor which produces clean, fresh air at a constant rate
  • Minimal maintenance required due to bearings fully sealed and no grease nipples in the drive system
  • Quick, single lever tine depth setting for easy adjustment
  • Air injection tines
  • AER-AID System Logo
  • A breath of fresh air

  • We use this monthly on our sand constructed greens and tees to provide aeration and inject air into the root zone.

  • I’ve been impressed with its versatility; I can use it as a spiker, I can change the depths of the tines, I can use solid tines or pencil tines, I can hollow core with it and I can inject air into the profile.
