Aeration
More than anything, grass needs water and oxygen to survive and thrive. Water comes in the form of either natural or artificial irrigation, while oxygen delivery is enhanced only through aeration.
"The whole aeration agenda has changed tremendously in the past 10 years because equipment manufacturers are listening to their end users and creating different forms of aeration, rather than just advocating the old method of pulling cores," Perry says. "I can aerate every week in the South by using different aeration tools that break the surface down and allow oxygen and water to move vertically very easily."
While aeration involving the pulling of cores with hollow tines is still widely regarded as the most effective strategy in terms of providing oxygen to the root zone and alleviating soil compaction, it is also the most disruptive and labor-intensive. A field may take up to 15 days to recuperate from core aeration, a circumstance that dictates cores be pulled only during substantial down times, which may amount to once per year in the spring or twice per year - once in the spring and again in the fall.

"hollow tines" is the description for a type of implement that has "tines". For example, a "pitchfork" has "tines", which allows you to pick up hay. Another example would be a cultivator which has "tines" on the back of it to break up larger pieces of soil.
In this case, the "tines" on a "hollow tine" means the "tines" are hollow to allow the soil to pass through the tine (imagine  tubes or pipes), creating holes in the ground without compacting the soil. The word "hollow" is the adjective describing the type of "tine" implement.
Because of the the information in the paragraph, this type of implement is also called a "Lawn Aerator" or  "Aerator". This is because it is "aerating" the soil (allowing air into the soil).

I am only an English speaker, but babelfish tells me it could be this:
充气器  or possibly 草坪充气器
You should check this.

Sorry, You mean you want to know how to translate "hollow tines".
I don't know, but the word "hollow is describing the type or kind of "tine". This would not be translated as a specific word, as the word "hollow" is an adjective.  This would be similar to saying "steel tines" or "aluminum tines". Hope this make sense.
