Tackle Tough Terrain
Broyhill’s AccuAire® core aerator is one of the most powerful aerators on the market, able to penetrate the toughest terrain. The FlexWingTM design allows the AccuAire® to follow the contour of the ground, providing even penetration. Solid-steel frame and extra-wide racks add weight to maximize core depth. Two styles available: 3 point and tailored. Equipped to use slicer blades or core spoons, the AccuAire® is available in two lengths: 69 inches or 93 inches. The trailered AccuAire® is equipped with a hydraulic lift and hooks up easily to the Broyhill TerraForce® and LegacyPRO®, or other utility vehicles equipped with hydraulics.
Cherrington lifts the soil onto a reciprocating power screen. Objects larger than the screen size are retained and carried by the loading flights to the hopper, while the Screened-Clean sand or soil falls back to the ground. Functions like a stationary screener, but on a tractor-towed or self-propelled, self-loading mobile screening frame. Screens can be quickly and easily changed to meet different job specs. Nothing can escape or slip through the powered screen. All soil is Screened Clean and returned to the ground for a perfect seedbed for landscaping, trench restoration, soil remediation, horse tracks and arenas, or beach cleaning.
