TIP 1 Blocked Tines: Tines block if the soil consistency isn't right - either too soft or too stoney. This is not a problem with this unit but is a problem with ALL hollow tines whether manual or powered. Ensure the soil is soft enough to penetrate but is not too soft that it 'squiggies' and blocks. A one metre piece of 10mm doweling can be poked into the tine to clear any blockage without bending down. Sometimes it is trial and error until you get the soil consistency right.

TIP 2 Clear or Smash Cores: Don't leave the cores on the lawn. Either use the flat back of a landscapers rake to collect them or let them dry and go over them with a rotary mower to smash them. This distributes the soil as a top dressing but only works if your mower instructions allow it to be used without the box. Wear eye, face and leg protection.

I like the hollow tune aerator it is well made which is just as well as my soul is very compacted but hopefully once I’ve used the aerator over a few seasons this will improve

Excellent quality but does not seem able to cope with the demands of my lawn. It is very difficult to get it into the ground and then the tines become clogged with earth/clay that is hard to remove, this is still the case after extensive watering.

Sleeve on handle could be a bit larger.
