Lawson Mfg./RanchWorx

Model RanchWorx Series - Single Drum Aerators



The RanchWorx Single Drum Aerator is designed from the ground up for agricultural aeration situations. Through its use of RanchTech Blades, heavy gauge steel construction and triangulated tongue, its capabilities range from maximum sub-soil fracturing power through to brush clearing and land management applications. Our forward-thinking, expertly engineered design means you can run our aerator at faster ground speeds achieving higher acres per hour, and increase production. Our patented spiral blade pattern is designed specifically to relieve compaction, manage crop residue, and create pathways for water, and nutrients to get to the optimal root zone.

Prosperity Through Soil Care

Conventional cultivation can have devastating effects on soil. With traditional cultivation techniques, soil is often ploughed several times to create a fine seed bed and control weeds. This will expose soil particles to erosion from wind and rain, destroy humus and result in severe breakdown of soil structure. Repeated passes by heavy tractors and equipment lead to soil degeneration and to the formation of almost impenetrable layers of compacted soil ('hard pan') below the surface.

When soil is compacted and a 'hard pan' forms; helpful soil microbes and earthworms are reduced or eliminated, pastures dry out faster, become waterlogged quicker and plant growth is restricted; resulting in lower crop and pasture yields. The RanchWorx Aerator's blades will penetrate and shatter the 'hard pan' without exposing the soil to erosion. It works in all soil types - from sandy to heavy clay to rocky - from flawless hayfields to rugged terrains. Hillsides are able to capture the rainwater and avoid run-off. Chemical and natural fertilizers are absorbed and filtered through the soil to grass roots.

In its no-till application, hay fields can be worked while leaving them smooth. Grass roots remain down - not exposed to sunlight. Cattle can remain in worked fields. Because our uncompromised quality extends throughout the RanchWorx and Lawson Series product lines, little maintenance is needed to keep each aerator working for generations to come.

No-Till Application
Our Aerators are a great option for no-till operations to help improve their soil health

The design of a RanchWorx Aerator means little to no disruption of the soil coverage, while still breaking up of the bound roots and soil compaction. Giving clear pathways for organic matter, nutrients, and water to reach to root layers in the soil, allowing the soil to store nutrients and water for when the roots need them the most.

Enhanced Soil Conditions
RanchWorx Aerators help remove soil compaction and root bound layers

Removing soil compaction and improving soil structure allows your soil to hold and conduct water, nutrients, and air necessary for plant root activity. Cutting through root bound layers and creating soil that promotes and allows for roots to grow down deeper and access water and nutrient reserves is one of the easiest ways to improve your soil health.

Solid Cold Rolled Axels.Extending entire length of the drum.
In order to handle the weight of a water filled drum and the rough ride over tough terrain our aerators have been fitted with a cold rolled steel axel that extends through the entire drum. This mean less worry about breakage and more ability to take your aerator into areas you would have never thought to take your traditional aerator.

RanchTech Blades
RanchTech BladesPatented spiral design.
We stand behind the design and don't want you to worry about breakage so much that we offer a lifetime warranty on breakage of our RanchTech blades. After your blades have worn out we offer a system to get the blades replaced and continue the warranty on the life of the new blades.

varied Drum SizesA Size For Every Soil Type.

The RanchWorx Single Drum aerator has a variety of drum sizes from 30' and 42' in height and 8' - 16' in width. This means no matter your soil type we have a size that work for you.

Hydraulic Lift System
Hydraulic Lift SystemEasy transportation.

Our aerators have been outfitted with a heavy duty hydraulic landing gear system to make lifting and taking turns easy. The landing gear is able to easily lift the aerator plus a fully filled drum and is sized to fit on roads. We utilize heavy duty aircraft tires and a steel locking bar for safety when transporting down roads.


Our integrated broadcast seeders offer accurate rate control and ease of use while aerating. The broadcast width also allows for seeding to only have to be done every second or third row.

Trailing Rollers

Create a manicured surface finish during a single aerating pass. Keep your haying equipment out of the soil and away from dirt and debris.

Larger Blades

Upgrade to 8' blades extend the life of your blades, especially if you have extremely hard soil.
