Keep your tines down and your profits up—with the patented TurnAer™ XT5 steerable and reversible aerator.

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 20% 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.

  • Turn and reverse while you aerate for easier, more productive aeration, especially on heavily landscaped lawns with hard-to-reach areas
  • 20% faster
  • Fits through 36-inch gate
  • Fingertip controls for easy forward-and-reverse operation
  • Optimized weight bar placement for maximum tine penetration
  • Unique tine-wheel design combined with a hydrostatic drive make the XT5 your best choice for aerating on hills

“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.”
