Textron Specialized Vehicles has launched new models of its Jacobsen GA Aerator Series. The GA450 and GA580 aerators will join the GA600 to create an extensive line of tractor-mounted aerators, with each model having a specific width and working depth that can be used in multiple applications.

Each model features Jacobsen’s PerfectStrike technology, which ensures tines enter and exit the turf vertically and from an optimal height. Its precise movement creates a straight and more perfectly round hole, providing uniform aeration with minimal damage to the root zone to allow turf to recover quickly, according to Textron.

Each GA series aerator can be equipped with an AerStrike attachment system that delivers up to 70% heightened productivity. Created for optimal spacing with a diamond pattern, the system enables single-pass aeration, reducing operation time.

Additionally, the GA series features a rear-mount roller location, with superior ground-following capability and a design that allows for quick, simple adjustment of aeration and easier maintenance.
