Z Turf Equipment introduced the new Z-Aerate 50 stand-on aerator. With the ability to aerate up to four acres-per-hour while simultaneously applying granular material, the Z- Aerate 50 improves productivity.
Z Turf Equipment Product Manager, Jonathan Guarneri, said the Z-Aerate 50 is a larger, more powerful version of the company’s earlier Z-Aerate 40 model.
“Our customers had extremely positive feedback about the performance and durability of our Z-Aerate 40,” Guarneri said. “For the Z-Aerate 50 we kept the great things customers loved but added more power and a 10-inch wider aeration width to maximize productivity on virtually any property.”
The 50-inch, 12-row tine head uses positive down pressure and a full-floating design to pull plugs with a consistent core depth of up to 3.5-inches. A precision depth adjustment system enables core depth to be adjusted in .25-inch increments. Plus, the split-reel design enables the Z-Aerate 50 to easily maneuver around trees, flowerbeds and other landscape features with the tines in the ground.
The Z-Aerate 50 is powered by a twin-cylinder 25 HP Kohler Command Pro engine. The intuitive controls and zero-turn maneuverability offer increased efficiency, while the independent high-torque pumps and wheel motors deliver ground speeds of up to 10mph forward, 5 mph reverse. An 8-gallon fuel cell provides increased runtime between fill-ups.
The Z-Aerate 50 can perform two jobs at once with its integrated broadcast spreader and 150-pound capacity hopper. In addition, a wide range of accessories are available to further increase productivity and versatility. Choose from a 30-gallon sprayer, 36-inch slicer seeder, 46-inch dethatch rake, or a 40-inch spike-style aeration head. The ability to perform multiple jobs in each pass dramatically increases profit potential.
The Z-Aerate 50 is now available for sale at Z Turf Equipment dealers across the country. Visit the Z Turf Equipment website to view specifications and learn more about the 2024 Z-Aerate 50 stand-on aerator.
