Cuts into the soil under your lawn with four sets of tempered steel “knives,” to permit easy absorption of water, oxygen and nutrients. Perfect to use in compact, clay soil. Aerate before overseeding or spot seeding your lawn. Reduce soil compaction to let in air and water, which promotes the activity of beneficial soil microorganisms, and encourages healthy lawns. Includes Aerator tines set and 4 tine retaining pins. Lawn care attachments are not recommended for surface-rooted grasses (Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede, and St. Augustine) because it can damage the root system.

Comments about Mantis Lawn Aerator Attachment - XP:
Ordered the XP lawn aerator attachment to prepare a larger lawn for reseeding. Sprayed my lawn with Ornamec to kill invasive bermuda grass but it killed everything. Or else I ONLY had bermuda grass and nothing else. In any event, I had a whole lawn of bare ground. I already had the narrow set of aerator attachment but it was taking much too long to prepare the ground for reseeding. So I ordered the XP attachment. What a difference double the width makes! I finished the lawn in half the time (go figure). This thing works great for ground prep for reseeding. Doesn't till like the tilling blades but simply cuts slits in the ground. I worked in a cross hatch pattern to hopefully get better results from seed germination and it worked the ground excellently without tilling up the ground. I covered about 3/4 of an acre in just a few hours. I'm next going to use it to aerate the portion of the yard that has existing grass and overseed (but will not cross till as that tends to cut the ground in too fine patterns and may damage existing grass). Easy to install and uninstall. Great quality as expected from Mantis. Doesn't pull as hard as regular tilling blades but you're not digging as aggressively either. In fact you're not really digging at all but cutting slits in the soil. Highly recommended for the application it was designed for.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was much faster than expected. I ordered right when I needed it instead of in advance of the need and was expecting to have to wait 1-2 weeks for delivery before I could finish the job. But it was delivered in less than a week. Thanks to Mantis for fast delivery which allowed me to complete the job when I wanted.
