Efficient and light

The JOSKIN BF meadow aerators are easy and compact machines resting on a folded beam frame. According to the chosen model, they may be fitted with spreading paddles (half-flexible leaves on BF-R2A and very flexible leaves on BF-R3S2), flexible tines (Ø 7 mm) or levelling scrapers (BF-R3S2). The machine is only to be adjusted by the 3rd point tie rod.

  • • The machine can be easily and quickly hitched by means of the round rod of Ø 22 mm on model 240 and Ø 28 mm on other models (standard).
  • • Manual folding and unfolding on models 360 and 420 and hydraulic on models 480 and 540.
Pasture Care

Pasture Care

It is advised to make use of the meadow aerator in the beginning of the season and shortly after the end of grazing. Slightly and superficially harrowing in order to spread dung is still very profitable. Moreover, a rainy and humid weather will boost the efficiency of the machine The evening dew will be ideal for dry weather periods.
Be aware that using the meadow aerator in summer may delay the grass growth when working too aggressively. In case of a long period of drought, it is therefore better to postpone this work or to adjust the pressure of the machine to a minimum. On the contrary, when expecting a rain period in a short time, the meadow aerator can be used freely as it will enable the ground to benefit from the rain.
Chop the large remains before aerating. Otherwise, dung will stick to it and not be spread properly. That is why it is interesting to combine the aerator with the JOSKIN rotary pasture topper.
Before and after the winter, meadows are strongly worked on with the whole machine weight and, most important, with the tines allowing to air the ground and tear off dead grass.
It is important to regularly maintain the pastures in order to preserve the good grass. Using a meadow aerator and a pasture topper prevents weed from spreading to neighbouring grounds.
Advantages

Advantages

  • Harrowing means :
  • • aerating the ground properly as well as increasing nitrification to the detriment of acidification;
  • • making the ground easy to penetrate for rain water and air ;
  • • destroying moss and other weed ;
  • • distributing farm manure and making it easier to decompose, thereby increasing its fertilizing value.
