John Deere Aercore™ 800 Aerator

  • 31.5-in. (80-cm) coring
  • Lightweight design
  • Drive tire core deflectors


+ Lightweight design and 9-psi (62.1 kPa) operating tire pressure minimizes turf compaction

+ Belt drive system means smooth and quiet operation, minimal maintenance, and no chains to grease

+ Industry-exclusive verticutter attachment gives the Aercore™ 800 more versatility than any other walk-behind aerator in the industry

+ Five-speed mechanical transmission eliminates hydraulic leak opportunities on playing surfaces

+ Drive tire core deflectors eliminate running over cores from the previous pass

+ Simple no-tool depth adjustment rests on coring head frame for consistent depth

+ Electrohydraulic lift system allows lifting the coring head without the engine running

+ Coring head located between the drive tires for maximum contour-following capabilities without any additional linkages

+ Narrow, 80-cm (31.5-in.) coring width promotes consistent hole depth on undulating greens

+ Powerful 25-hp*(18.6-kW) gas engine provides plenty of power for aerating and verticutting simultaneously
