Petrol Scarifier for Hire

This petrol-powered lawn scarifier offers a fast and efficient solution for gardeners who need to remove matted thatch, weeds and moss from a lawn - helping to create a thicker, healthier lawn without damaging the existing grass. Scarifying allows air, water and nutrients to reach the roots helping to aid its growth and appearance.

This petrol model – incorporating independently sprung hardened swinging blades to turn over the grass, gently teasing out thatch and pruning down the lawn – is easily capable of working over large areas.

With a handy and practical design, this professional lawn scarifier also includes a floating front axle that follows the contours of the terrain; a lockable fine height adjuster and folding handlebars for easy transportation in the back of a van; and an independent blade drive through a reliable centrifugal clutch to make it straightforward to use.

Q - Why should you scarify?

  • To help improve the health of your lawn you should scarify it to remove both moss and thatch. To much thatch can cause not only extensive root damage to your grass but also inhibits oxygen and nutrients from reaching the healthy grass underneath. By dethatching, you will help the healthy grass to grow.

Q - Can you adjust the depth of the scarifying blades?

  • Yes, you can adjust the height of the machines to suit the amount of thatch removal you require. This is done with an easy to use adjuster linked to the front axle. Turn clockwise to raise the height and anti-clockwise to reduce the height of the scarifier.

Q - Does the scarifier run on regular unleaded fuel?

  • Yes

Q - When should you use the scarifier?

  • Usually, Spring and Autumn months when the ground is not too soft and not to dry.

Q - Do I need to prepare the lawn before I use the scarifier?

Yes you need short dry grass before you scarifier, and all objects which could harm the equipment or that could be picked up and thrown by the scarifiers rotating blades should be removed from the lawn e.g. stones, sticks etc

Q - What is the steepest gradient the scarifier can be used on?

  • Do not use the scarifier on lawns that are steeper than 20 Degrees and always ensure you work across the slope as opposed to up and down it.

Q - Will the scarifier fit through a garden gate?

  • Yes, with an overall width of 24 inches, the scarifier will fit through standard garden gateways.
