“Good value machine. Works well -Plenty of power. ”

Written on: 09/05/2010

Good value machine. Works well -Plenty of power.
But:
Fiddly to clean - lots of cavities make it hard work.
Catcher cover makes life difficult when fitting catcher.
Rear wheels clog up fast. Front wheels sticky from day 1.

“The Al-Ko 38VLE rake and scarifier worked better...”

Written on: 14/03/2010 by WoodyNut (1 review written)

The Al-Ko 38VLE rake and scarifier worked better without the collector. I found it easier to first rake the lawn using the machine and then using my hover mower with the blades set high to pick up the rakings. Cleaning the machine after use was quite a chore as there are so many nooks and crannies for the cuttings etc to cling to during operation.

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… Read Full Review

“In Use ”

Written on: 13/05/2009 by Frank Cole (1 review written)

In Use
I am very impressed with my ALKO 38VLE Combi Electric Scarifier. Nice throaty roar, it digs up thatch thoroughly, the grass bag holds a decent amount and the controls are easy to use. There are a few niggles though:

Design
The cable can get caught in the back cover when fitting the grass bag so it is best to run the cable on the outside of the handle. This is not explained in the instructions. It would have been better if the cable cut-out in the top cover had been 1-2cm nearer the… Read Full Review
