Safer and Better Looking Athletic Field

Duration: 1:52 - Views: 8449 Turf compaction is a very common problem that can cause unhealthy grass that leads to less than optimal playing surfaces. Compaction happens most often on sports fields and in high foot traffic areas. The Ventrac Aera-Vator is the answer to this problem. The Aera-Vator is a tool that aerates turf with no mess to clean up—the area can be used immediately after treatment. The heavy-duty tines vibrate as it breaks up the soil to allow for increased water flow and oxygen to the roots. As an added benefit, the seeder box can be attached with the Aera-Vator to allow the operator to over-seed at the same time it aerates and loosens up the ground below. Regular aerating with the Ventrac Aera-Vator can create an overall safer playing field with a healthier turf.

My name's Aaron Graber, and today we're on-site at a local high school using the Ventrac Aera-Vator. The concept of aera-vating differs from normal aeration because you're not just penetrating the ground. Once the tines break the surface, they vibrate sideways to fracture the ground around it. This allows for better airflow to the root system of the grass. It's also important to note that you don't have to pick up any cores when you're done. Since schools are always having events with plenty of foot traffic in localized areas, there's always a problem of the grass getting beaten down and compacted. When you aerate a playing surface, you actually soften the ground below so it ends up being safer for kids to play on. On the Ventrac Aera-Vator, you also have the option to add a seedbox on top so you can overseed all in one pass. It makes a lot of sense to have a piece like this in a Ventrac fleet. Especially in a school system where you have a lot of different sports fields to maintain. As always, one of the greatest advantages of using an attachment on a Ventrac, is that when you're done, you can switch attachments and transition to a different job on the campus. Such as slope mowing, edging, or even finishing out a baseball field with the groomer.
