“Not of merchantable quality”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by fairwaystraveller (1 review written)

Bought this from Argos despite the mixed reviews. This was a real mistake! As other reviewers have said, whilst it removed a huge amount of moss and dead grass from the lawn on its first use, it simply didn't pick it up. On the second use, the motor started working intermittently and has now died completely. Absolutely terrible design and even worse quality. Awful!… Read Full Review

“Burnt Out Qualcast Lawnraker”

Written on: 02/06/2014 by Angelcake01 (1 review written)

I bought the Qualcast lawnraker/scarifier at the beginning of the May and took it out for the second time to do front lawn and within 15 minutes I also had big puffs of black smoke and a strong burning smell coming from it. I returned it to Homebase and managed to get a replacement but now too frightened to use the replacement in case the same thing happens. Does anyone know if I am doing something wrong????… Read Full Review

“Burnt out on third use....complete waste of money!”

Written on: 17/05/2014

I bought this about two years ago and this is the third season it has come out of the shed. It worked for twenty yards, changed pitch and slowed and emitted a puff of smoke and that was it! It is still in immaculate condition but only fit for the tip! The two years it worked the grass collection was so awkward that I even preferred raking it up… Read Full Review

“Not fit for purpose”

Written on: 04/10/2013 by Brianjames (1 review written)

I bought my LRS32 some months ago from Homebase and because of personel reasons was not able to use it until the beginning of October. The very first thing that I noticed was that it did not transfer the grass etc into the collection bag, I then spent a lot of time raking and picking up the grass. I later called the Qualcast help line and was told that they knew about the problem but that the machine was built under licence for Homebase and that I should contact them. I do intend to take the… Read Full Review

“Great Lawn Rake”

Written on: 28/08/2013 by Ingleby820 (1 review written)

My lawns are very bad with weeds and moss in particular so I borrowed my fathers Qualcast too see how good/bad it was. As most people have said its very effective at removing the thatch but for the life of me I cannot understand why people have a problem with collection. Every single scrap of moss, weed and dead grass goes straight into the collection box! What are other people doing? fitting the collection box upsidedown?! Running accross the lawn in a force 8 gale? I would really like to see… Read Full Review

“Collection box useless. ”

Written on: 25/04/2013

The machine itself is very good and removes an unbelievable amount of thatch from the lawn .......... that's where the problem starts. You then have to follow yourself around picking all of it up by hand because none of it goes in the collection box. It blows the thatch everywhere but in the collection box. To start with, it's an inconvenience, very quickly it gets annoying. It's a shame for a good machine to be let down by this, but - would I have bought one knowing it didn't have a… Read Full Review

“Raked well for 1/2 an hour and then died!!!!!”

Written on: 16/05/2012 by majengo (1 review written)

This is a very poor quality yhen the one I had for over 20 years.The collection box does not do what is required of it and falls off frequently.One has to emty it every 5-7 minutes.The handle comes off very easily and makes raking a frustrating job.The rake died after 30 minutes of use and I am going to take it back and look for a better Raker. The only plus point is that it raakes well. Haven't had a chance to try the scarifier as the machine stopped working… Read Full Review

“Could do Better ! A LOT”

Written on: 21/03/2012 by paulm2 (1 review written)

Bought this on offer at Argos, what a shame taking it back tomorrow used once. As a lawn rake adequate, but what a sorry excuse for grass collection i had to spend an hour manually raking up the grass.The collection box when not falling off is at such an angle that very little grass goes into it, just piles of thatch and grass all over the lawn. The box it self is of such poor design and quality it might as well not be there.If your lawn is not like a bowling green you will find it hard to push… Read Full Review

“Good but could be better”

Written on: 24/06/2011 by Briggsc (1 review written)

The rake is very effective at getting moss, dead grass and any old debris from your lawn, and it always surprises me how much stuff it actually picks up. I have to agree with the other reviewers here that the basket/pan at the front is a real weakness in the design. It starts to spill the content all over the rake before it's even half full, so you have to stop and either push the content back and down into the pan or just empty it. The mechanism to fix the pan to the rake is also a bit… Read Full Review

“Most upset at spending over double what i spent last...”

Written on: 08/05/2010 by jakedodd (1 review written)

Most upset at spending over double what i spent last time for a lawn rake. If the lawn is not pan flat the stupid handle in front digs in the ground and stops. Annoying basket collects the bare minimum then tips it out over the machine as you struggle to unclip it. Why not have an open basket like my old one so nothing needs unclipping. Very combersome to put in car. Wish i could have had a test run first… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2010 by Khobad (1 review written)

You get what you pay for! Collection box is almost a waste of time if only to keep the equipment from falling over. Fairly good at clearing thatch and moss although several passes are needed to finish the job. If the drive belt starts slipping the heat produced can melt the drive pulley as has happened to me on 2 occasions now. Bit of a disappointment. My neighbour bought a cheap scarifier from Lidl does a much better job and aeriates too!… Read Full Review

“The LawnRake 32 is very lightweight and easy to use,...”

Written on: 01/03/2009

The LawnRake 32 is very lightweight and easy to use, it is a much quicker way of getting rid of thatch and moss than using a normal hand-rake. Also collects all of the moss , leaves etc in a huge containar at the front. Easy to empty too. I use this great piece of machinery in the middle of January each year, since after the frosts, to remove thatch that collects due to fallen leaves on the lawn from autumn the previous year. Sometimes I use after mowing in the summer, since my mower doesnt… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/08/2008 by MickBee (1 review written)

The Qualcast Lawnraker 32 has the feel of the B&D lawnraker that I had 20 years ago, worked over by a production engineer so that some of the parts (e.g. the collecting box & its clips) are cheap & nasty, but in my opinion not by someone who has thought about what a gardener wants. Could so easily be better. The power lead is short (12m) and fixed, so tempting one to use an extension cable. The control switch is awkward (and strictly right-handed). Collection is poor - thatch piles up on the… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/06/2008 by Snigsy (1 review written)

I love my Qualcast Lawnraker 32, I was going to buy the Flymo lawnrake compact 340 but having read so many bad reviews mainly with the motor burning out after a single use etc I was put off completely. My personal view is that Qualcast (Bosch) is a better make than Flymo anyway so I felt I had little to lose. Overall - well pleased, I made the right decision. Easy to select height settings you can collect everything from just leaves and cuttings down to moss and thatch etc… Read Full Review
