“I've had my ALKO combi scarifier for just over one...”

Written on: 15/07/2009

I've had my ALKO combi scarifier for just over one year and the performance is impressive, with effective removal of thatch and many types of weeds.

Having a fairly large lawn, the collector bag is of limited use, and I found it better to use the scarifier and then collect the debris afterwards using my lawnmower.

A motor bearing failed recently (repaired under the 2 yr warranty). I was surprised at the amount of dust, grit, grass and other debris that had got into the motor housing, which was possibly the cause of, or at least a contributory factor to, the failure.

Because of this poor level of protection of the moving parts from contamination, there could be a question mark over the long-term reliability of this product.

Therefore although I would recommend this product, it would be with qualifications.
