“When it comes to manufacturing lawn care equipment, Turfco has done it right! The XT8 is a beast, a “game changer” to say the least! It allowed us to provide top quality results in some of the most demanding turf areas. It would pull cores were others would have just bounced over the top. It increased crew productivity and improved crew moral, no one was “ beat up”, at the end of the day. Even the shop mechanics were thanking us; it’s well designed; it just didn’t break down. We will be converting our aeration equipment line to Turfco XT8 stand-on’s as soon as we can. “

Turfco's new TurnAer XT8 stand-on aerator is the solution to increase productivity and reduce downtime. With aeration speed up to 7 mph, the XT8 can cover up to 92,000 sq ft an hour and easily handle residential, commercial and sports turf with a 30" aerating width that can still fit through a 48" gate. It has raised ground clearance to get over most curbs and zero-turn agility. The patent-pending Auto-Depth Control allows operators to set a tine depth that is consistent across a property, regardless of turf conditions all day long.

The rugged reliability of the XT8 minimizes downtime by utilizing covered drive chains outside the aeration area and using sealed, self-aligning bearings near the aeration area. Chain tensioners are easily accessible and a standing platform can be locked in the raised position for easy maintenance on tines. Equipped with a 22-horsepower engine with a cyclonic air cleaner, the XT8 has the power to take on any terrain. Standing platform suspension reduces vibration and shock for reduced operator fatigue and increased comfort.

  • Patent-pending Auto-Depth Control- set it once to get consistent aeration depth all day long
  • Protected drive chains outside aeration area keeps out dirt and debris minimizing downtime

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!

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!

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

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

I personally demoed the machine and loved it from the start. The field guys love it, it's their favorite machine in the fleet. We'll be purchasing another one this year.

From the professionallism of the staff we spoke to on the phone through the amazing quality of the XT8 we've had a very enjoyable experience with Turfco.

The XT8 allowed me to get more overseeding jobs done without having to hire the extra help. I only wish i would have bought this years ago.

This machine does exactly what it's supposed to do, it aerates well. We suffered extreme drought most of the summer & the ground was very hard but it did not effect the performance or effectiveness of the XT8.

Well built and great on hills!
