Fitted with 5 rows of tools, the JOSKIN Scariflex R5S3 meadow aerator has all the qualities to be the best compromise between dung spreading harrow, meadow aerator and chain harrow.

Its strong rectangular beam structure supports the rows of scrapers and paddles, while the three rows of flexible tines are fixed to the large steel sections. The standard gauge wheels and the 3rd point tie rod allow to adjust the constant ground pressure of the scrapers, while a lever adjust that of the 3 rows of flexible tines.


  • • 3rd point connected to the frame through a spring to better follow the shape of the surface and limit vibrations.
  • • SA hydraulic unfolding on models from 4.80 to 7.20 m and DA on 8.40 and 9.60 m.
  • • Safety device to keep the machine folded when driving.
  • • Unlocking the safety device from the cabin (cord).
  • • Adjustment of the tines with a lever on each element for the same angle on each tine.
  • • Rubber gauge wheels (375 x 150 mm - pressure: max. 2 bar) (4 on models from 4.8 to 7.2 m and 6 on models of 8.4 and 9.6 m).
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.


  • 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.
