Ryan has expanded its line of walk-behind aerators to include a unit that features new Easy Steer Technology. According to the company, this Lawnaire V with EST combines all of the same great performance and user-friendly features as Ryan’s current Lawnaire V core aerator, with a new tine assembly that enables the unit to turn easily while in the aeration process—without removing the tines from the ground.
“The difference is in the tine bank assembly," says Jay Baudhuin, Ryan product manager. “Each tine wheel assembly has a one-way clutch bearing. This design is responsive to the operator and enables easy turning capability while the tines are in the ground. This new tine design enables easy turning capability without costly hydraulic tine assemblies or dissimilar controlling mechanisms.”
