Agri-Fab 48-in Plug Aerator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 396.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer Support I purchased the 48" Plug Areator, went together easily. Once it was together I discovered the wheels would not raise the plug knives high enough to clear the ground in transport position. I checked that I put it together correctly, which I did.. I called the toll free support line and talked with Vicky( very nice and efficient) I explained the problem I had, she told me the shaft was mis-drilled and they would send me a replacement which arrived at my home in a few days. Although I was not happy about having the problem in the first place, I was extremely pleased how quickly Agri-Fab responded to solve the problem. Well Done! Thanks

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Aerator - horrible assembly and missing part I've assembled high performance engines that were easier than assembling this Aerator. It took me 3 1/2 hours and I'm a very proficient mechanic. Plus it's missing one of the blades! I've bought other Agrifab products, and they were missing parts as well. They need some quality control - BADLY. The instructions were very poor and you really have to look over everything multiple times in order to get it put together correctly. Once assembled, it worked well (even missing a blade). You do have to put lots of weight on it to keep it from bouncing. The handle to lower and raise the blades doesn't like to be raised, so watch it when you put it up thinking it'll stay. It won't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I looked at many aerators before buying this model. I couldn't be happier. It met all my expectations. After reading all the reviews about missing parts and how long to assemble I chose to have Lowes assemble it for me. I have a 2015 BMW SUV and was able to fit it in the back fully assembled. I put a couple cement blocks on the back and aerated a couple days after a rain and it pulled plugs approx 2" in length. There is plenty of room for more blocks and I will probably add a couple more next time. I aerated approx 3/4 of an acre and turned sharply a lot and it never tore the grass. And finally, I pulled it behind a Cub Cadet zero turn mower and the hitch height was just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, Sturdy and Works Great. Use with Caution [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This unit works great. I shopped around and was able to have Lowe's price match a local farm supply chain. As others have said, leave plenty of time to assemble and wear gloves. One slip of the hand while tightening the wheel assemblies and you too could be sitting in the Emergency Room getting your hand stitched back together. These tines are SHARP. They could put removable protective caps on the tines, but that would add to the cost of the unit and assembly time. Unit still works great after second use. If not for my trip to the ER this would have gotten 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built Solid I read a number of reviews that talked about missing parts, so I started by doing a complete inventory of parts. Everything was in the bags as listed. I was impressed with the solid construction of the Aerator, it's all metal except for the 2 tires. It took 4 hours to assemble, and I consider myself somewhat skilled in handyman projects. The instructions were good, but I did have to go over them several times for certain steps. I would not recommend assembling this product unless you do have some mechanical skills. I have not used this product yet, so all I can describe are the apparent quality of the product and assembly. I would recommend watching the video that is listed on the outside of the box before assembling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Agri-Fab lives up to their reputation of providing a high quality product at a good price. The easy to follow instructions made assembling this aerator a breeze. It has a lot of parts and it did take me about 3 hours but most of the steps are repeats so there isn't a lot of reading to see what you need to do next. I recommend you wear gloves when handling the cutters since they are sharp and could cut you. All parts fit into place as designed. I did my whole yard and it will be good to add this new tool to my collection. It made nice neat holes and the plugs came out easily. It was cheaper than having someone else to come and aerate my yard. I'll have it for many years to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't purchase if you plan to use the same week Recently bought this plug aerator and when I went to assemble it was missing several integral pieces. I called Agri Fab customer service and they agreed to send the missing parts. As other reviews have mentioned, AgriFab quality control leaves much to be desired. Overall once all the pieces arrived and product was fully assembled, it appears to be well designed and works just fine. I just don't recommend you buy it if you intend to use it right away as there seems to be a trend in AgriFab leaving out important parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good design, poor manufacturing This is a well built machine, however the box was missing multiple parts for assembly. I started working on it Friday, found out I was missing parts and stopped. Called the manufacturer on Monday and they sent me the missing parts. I went back on Thursday to finish and found I was missing more parts. So I went to lowes and bought them. Very aggrivating to have missing parts, especially for a product that was advertised as being better than the competitors and priced higher. The manufacturer did send me the missing parts quickly.
