Keengardener's review of ALKO 38VLE Combi Electric Scarifier

★☆☆☆☆

“Useless collecter”

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

The scarifier works well! However, the collection systm is extremely badly designed:

The bag is too small
When full the machine is top heavy, falls over and releases all the grass
By holding it upright with one hand it is just about possible to remove the bag without losing the contents, however, unlike most mowers, you can't remove the bag up through the forks of the handle, it has to be taken to the side,risking losing the contents, and can also catch on the cable
Because of the narrowness of the forks, you can't open the flap enough to make fitting the collecter a simple task.

All in all, very frustrating, and I echo the comment that I bet the designer never used it!
