Earthquaker Aerator Details
- Soil compaction and poor drainage in both arable and grassland can dramatically affect production yields. Pressure from livestock grazing closes the soils natural pores causing soil density to increase. A barrier or “pan” builds up between 75mm (3″) and 300mm (12″) below the soil surface. This impenetrable layer restricts infiltration of rain water, limits the availability of oxygen in the soil and dramatically restricts root development.
- The Earthquaker is designed to give the soil a “lift” by fracturing stiff compacted soils. This process encourages oxygen penetration for optimum plant root development and micro-organism activity, along with better water percolation. The end result is a more productive and healthy soil.
- Available in 1.83 metre (6 foot) and 2.44 metre (8 foot) double rank (bar) models along with a choice of parabolic or straight leg, disc coulter, choice of point, blade and wing combinations and a rear roller.
