Return To Playable Conditions Faster With Toro Aerators

Aeration is essential for healthy course turf and greens. While golfers appreciate the beauty of the grounds, they have little patience for waiting for the course to become playable again after aeration. Fortunately, Toro ProCore® 648 walk-behind and 1298 three-point mounted aerators shorten return-to-play time while delivering the exact aeration needed to establish and retain robust turf.

It starts with productivity. Both ProCore models are easy to use and highly efficient, so operators can aerate more area in less time. Just as important, hole spacing is precise and clean, shortening the recovery time for a faster return to play.

ProCore 648 Walking Aerator

With a large 48″ aeration swath, nearly double the width of many other models, the ProCore 648 covers a significant amount of ground in less time. And that’s just the beginning of why it has highest productivity rating of any walk aerator on the market. It’s able to aerate 18 greens in about seven hours, assuming an average of 6,500 square feet per green.

Hole quality is essential not only for aeration, but also for a faster return to playing conditions. The ProCore 648 uses RotaLink™ geometry so the tines enter and exit the ground cleanly. TrueCore™ sensing technology automatically maintains your selected tine depth, up to 4 inches, across ground undulations for consistent coring depth. With multiple tine holder options and the flexibility to adjust ground speed to space holes from 1.5 to 3 inches apart, you can get the exact results you need.

Productivity and quality results for the entire aeration process are also enhanced by the machine’s design. Innovative rear wheel placement in front of the aeration head ensures they don’t drive over freshly aerated turf, and the patented 3-wheel series/parallel traction drive prevents slippage to help ensure even hole spacing.

What sets the ProCore 648 apart even more is the outstanding selection of tines — more than 180! For both core and venting aeration, TITAN® Tines from Toro are designed for exceptional hole quality and superior durability, lasting up to three times longer than regular tines. The wide range of tines ensures that you’ll have exactly what you need for any application, and the unique TITAN QuickChange™ taper-lock design makes changing tines a snap. Check out the TITAN Tines catalog to see the complete selection.

ProCore 1298 Three-Point Aerator

Thanks to a 98″ aeration swath, the ProCore 1298 makes quick work of the largest areas on your course. The 1298 also utilizes the RotaLink™ geometry to ensure consistently high-quality holes, and the depth control mechanism has a high gear ratio so that changing settings is almost effortless. Plus, the ProCore 1298 lets you set a hole depth of up to 5″.

Easy to operate, the ProCore 1298 has a balanced configuration that greatly reduces operator fatigue for a productive, efficient aeration experience. Easy access to service components and minimal grease points shorten maintenance time.

High Efficiency. High Performance.
