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.
