Rated 5 out of 5Â by lawnracker What a product
I didn't think after ordering this product it would be up to much, how wrong was i. Make sure your weelie bin is empty, i filled it and if i didn't have chickens to feed on some would of ended up with too much. you find youself empting the collector more than the actual using, where was it all coming from? It has a powerful motor and depending on what setting you have it on (i set it to 0mm) it will pull you along. lawn looks a bit sorry for it's self, at first but it's just what it needed. If this is what you are looking for then this is the toll for you, best buy of 2014, great thanks.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by PGT1 Does the job but not robust
This machine has two attachments a rake which works fine. The second attachment is a bladed scarifier which easily removed moss from my lawn. The lawn looked very bare after the first use but quickly recovered. It did its job & the motor is very powerful.
The collection box is a waste of time, much easier to rake the lawn afterwards.
Now the bad news - the first two machines I had broke. One because the drive shaft mount sheared. The second time because the drivebelt snapped & I couldn't see anyway of taking machine apart to replace it. However Screwfix were very good at replacing it both times.
I'm on my third machine & I'm hoping this one will prove more reliable. Despite the problems I've experienced I'm glad I got it & would say it is worth getting to revive a mossy lawn.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Southcoastboy Decent buy for the money
Having read previous reviews on this and similar products decided to purchase. Buying on line and delivery was excellent as usual with Screwfix. The scarifier works well it has some negatives, but I still recommend it.
As everyone says the bag fills up quicker than a genie from a bottle. However hard to see that it could be bigger without affecting the maneuverability.
The height adjustment is in steps and is would be better if it had fine adjustment.
The fixing bolts for the interchangeable heads appear to be 10mm, but two decent sets of spanners and socket sets tended to disagree. They liked to wobble on the heads and told me 9.5mm is more accurate.
But as a guy that believes in Genies and talks to his socket sets, what do I know, except I am happy with the purchase and oh yes - it does the job very well !

Rated 4 out of 5Â by onge72 lawn scarifier and raker
Delivery was good; next day in the morning . The machine was easy to put together. The scarifing and raking heads were easy to change. Remember round section goes down into the slot.
I got 2 jumbo bags of moss and thatch out of the lawn so forget the moss collector as it was full up in 5 seconds. Not a fault as you could not drag around a jumbo bag at the back of the machine.
When I first unpacked it and saw its simplicity I was a little concerned but it turned out to be a good machine and a good price. I am well pleased. I have only had the machine a week so I can not comment on its realibilty
