Billy Goat Acquires Plugr Aerators from SourceOne

Plugr reciprocating aerators complement Billy Goat line of turf management equipment.

Missouri-based Billy Goat Industries has completed the acquisition of the Plugr brand of aerators from SourceOne, Lincoln, NE.

Plugr has been known for its reciprocating aerators. According to a statement from Billy Goat, reciprocating aerators have advantages over traditional drum aerators that allow for unique features such as in-ground turning that reduces contractor fatigue; fewer tines for easier service; variable aeration density that produces two to 10 times more holes per pass—ideal for patch and repair work—and deeper plugs regardless of soil conditions.

“When combined with Billy Goat’s best-in-class sod cutters, overseeders and power rakes, this acquisition will advance our mission to provide our customers the most innovative, productive, simple to service and user friendly lineup of turf renovation equipment in the industry,” said Will Coates, CEO and president of Billy Goat.
