“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… Read Full Review

“I would not recommend one of these scarifiers (despite...”

Written on: 04/03/2011

I would not recommend one of these scarifiers (despite being a "best buy" from Which?) They do the job when they decide to work but they are very tempremental. I bought one in Spring 2008 after I suffered a slipped disc and wanted to protect my back from further injury. The thing worked intermittently but has now 3 years later given up completely.

“1. Very cheaply made from flimsy plastic! ”

Written on: 05/09/2010

1. Very cheaply made from flimsy plastic!
2. The bag (if used) is extremely had to put on as the plastic lid you lift up doesn't allow it to fit correctly!
3. The bag if used doesn't actually pickup the debris! You will need to use your lawnmower afterwards!
4. It doesn't stand upright when not held it just falls over due to poor design!
5. It will rip your lawn to shreds pulling out grass as well as moss a thick green lawn will quicly be thinned out - I highly recommend a rake used with… Read Full Review
