The JOSKIN EBR4S meadow aerators are traditional aerators fitted with a mechanically welded frame with a spring allowing to limit vibrations at work.

The machine is made up of 4 rows of tools leaving a large free space between the lines so that one row is over before the next one starts working. The first row of tools is adjusted by means of gauge wheels, the second by means of the 3rd point length and the third and fourth ones (Ø 7 mm flexible tines) by means of a crank on a pivoting point.


  • • 3rd point connected to the frame through a chain to better follow the shape of the surface.
  • • Can easily be mounted on different tractors by means of the hitching rod.
  • • Safety device to keep the machine folded when driving.
  • • Unlocking the safety device from the cabin (cord).
  • • Hydraulic folding and unfolding of the extensions on models 480 to 660 by single-acting hydraulic ram.
  • • Adjustment of the working height.
Why and how maintaining pastures?

Why and how maintaining pastures?

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;
  • It is possible to directly bolt a seed drill on the chassis, or afterwards, to reseed meadows or to spread a selective herbicide.
