The only hollow tine lawn aerator made from high-strength Stainless Steel and with replaceable tines. The Swardman hollow tine fork aerator ensures perfect aeration that will help the roots grow deeper and the lawn to thicken. You can use the Swardman fork aerator on smaller lawn areas, especially in places that have more traffic (and therefore ground compaction) than others. The fork has 3 hollow prongs, 130mm in length and 90 mm apart. The soil cores that are removed have a diameter of 16 mm.

Offered as an extension to the Hollow Tine Aerator, the Solid Tines are beautifully manufactured from high grade stainless steel. Penetrating the soil to a depth of 100mm each, these are the perfect size for effortless aeration of your lawn when you don’t want to remove a core.

  1. Ben C.

    I received the aerator yesterday thanks and used it today. I’m not going to say it was light work but the Swardman was certainly more effective than the cheap Chinese one I had before!

  2. Colin M.

    Have to provide some feedback on Swardman product which was delivered earlier today. I rate this manual fork aerator 10/10 for quality and effectiveness during 10 minute initial trial period. No clogging like all previous tools purchased which will now be confined to the scrapheap. Well worth the wait.

  3. Peter K.

    Item arrived this morning. Thank you for your excellent communication during this difficult situation for you. Very happy with my purchase.

    My aerator arrived today, and with some trepidation I unpacked it and gave it a try, and boy, is it good.

    I’ve had poor experiences in the past with hollow tine aerators because of my heavy clay soil; they just clog on first use, but this one is just superb.

    My thanks to you and the rest of the team for delivering a great product in very difficult circumstances.

  5. Richard L.

    I just wanted to say that this product is amazing.

    I had given up on aerating our poorly drained clay lawn. The £30 plug aerators from the garden centre clog every few times you push them in. And it’s hard work pushing six (usually blunt) tines into the ground. Spikey shoes are useless. Using a garden fork just compacts the soil around the holes and makes no real difference. And the cost of a petrol aerator hire isn’t worth it for two small lawns (one of which is only accessible through the house)

    Then a while back I saw the Swardman aerator on YouTube (it was one of the “you might also be interested in” suggestions). It looked like a brilliant idea. Until I saw the price… I thought about it for several months before deciding to give it a go. And I am glad I did. At the weekend I aerated the back lawn without a hitch. The only time I had to clean the tool out was when I had finished.

    This is quite simply a superb design. And it is beautifully made. I never thought I would end up buying luxury lawn care tools, but I am glad I did. And it should be a one time purchase as, if the construction is anything like as good as it seems, it should outlast me!

    No doubt a pricey bit of kit. But I tried out within an hour of receiving and I am delighted.
    Attempts with a standard hollow tine aerator failed miserably in my new build clay soil. Blocking up all the time, having to clear it out with a power drill (not recommended health and safety wise). Absolute nightmare.
    This bad boy, straight through every time, the tubes of earth self ejecting. Genius. Its still hard manual work, but so much easier than before. And remember your looking at maybe £75 to hire a mechanical aerator for the day.
    One time, get a cheap plastic leaf rake. Makes it easy to collect up the pellets without clawing at the grass.

    I do not have any social media presence but I would like you to know how satisfied I am with the Swardman hollow tine aerator I have recently purchased, I have used it on approx 50% of my lawns so far, it is as Matt, the Garden Lawncare Guy mentioned, quite a workout but if taken at a sensible pace even a 75 year old can manage, seriously it pulled up the plugs and ejected the majority as advertised. I can understand that there could be some hesitation on making a purchase due to cost but the aerator is very well made and will give years of service. I have found that quality tools carry a premium price but will give better performance over the long term.

    This is the best lawn hollow tine on the market I totally recommend to any one.
