What is the diameter of the tynes? It says 5mm to 20mm, is it adjustable or are there different sizes to fit as required?

RoyL

Hello, Thanks for your email. We had a mistake on our site and it should have read 5 x 20mm tines, so the diameter of each tine is 20mm. I hope this helps,

Crocus

Good morning Thank you for your enquiry. I have checked with our buyer and they have advised this would dig about 50mm cores. If your soil is very badly compacted and drainage is very poor aerating will help relieve some compaction but it may not solve the problem completely. http://www.crocus.co.uk/product/_/lawn-aerator/classid.2000008965/ I trust this information is of help and if we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us again. Regards Sarah

Crocus

Can you please tell me how deep the sprung tines Lawn Aerator will go into the ground? The 'soil' on our lawn is just about solid clay, so unless I can get through the clay I'm assuming that aerating won't improve drainage at all? Please advise. Thanks
