“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.

"After waiting nearly 3 years for Turfco to develop a stand on aerator, and like the complete Turfco line of equipment they have come through with another gem. The Turfco XT-8 stand on aerator is a rugged, dependable work of art. Not only is it easy to use but pulls a ton of plugs. Not just bottle cap depth plugs but plugs that would make any greens keeper envious. I love the fact that I don't have to control the tine hydraulics with my hands and that frees them up for maneuvering the machine.
By far the nicest, most maintenance free machine on the market."

“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!”
