Whether you’re a fan of spike aeration or not, you have to admit that the Mow-Aerator treads would look pretty badass on your riding mower. Plus, once you’re done aerating you can take your lawn mower mudding.
The Mow-Aerator consists of a set of brackets with 1-1/2″ spikes sticking out — GAILCO Innovations makes it from cold rolled steel, powder-coated to resist corrosion. The brackets mount easily to your back tires when you need to aerate, and you can remove ’em just as easily when you don’t.
The standard model fits on rear tires with 18″ and 20″ diameters by 8″ wide, or you can buy an adjustable model to fit tires up to 12″ wide. You can also buy up-size kits for the adjustable model to fit tires up to 26″ in diameter (or possibly more). You’ll pay between $160 and $200 for the standard or adjustable models, plus $20 for each up-size kit.
