Turfco revolutionized aeration with TurnAer™ aerators by allowing you to turn while you aerate. The TurnAer XT5 continues the revolution by utilizing Turfco’s patented, steerable aerator technology with a new, hydrostatic drive system. Now you can turn and reverse while you aerate. It is also 30% faster. The XT5 also features new EasyChange™ tines, dramatically reducing the amount of time required to change tines. A removable tine cover helps speed up tine changing and cleaning. The XT5 also advances aerator durability with a low-profile design and rugged, unibody steel frame. And instead of belts, the XT5 uses drive chains that are covered and located outside of the frame for long-lasting, trouble-free operation.

We like the XT5 a lot! After years of competitor drum aerators, these are a treat and they do not break. We use to spend so much time messing with sloppy chains on our old machines. With the reverse on them it is easy to heavily aerate bad areas for overseeding.

I have been in the lawn care industry for 35 years and the Turfco TurnAer XT5 is one of the most user-friendly machines I have ever used. It takes areation to the next level by giving operators the ability to both steer and reverse without having to lift the tines.

We love this machine! It's been pulling great cores even with the dry weather.
