A scarifier is a tool that drains the soil from your lawn, as well as aerating the grasses, so that the grass can grow again in an optimal way.
In order to distinguish between an electric priest and a thermal scarifier, several factors must be taken into account.
The handling of the device
Thermal scarifiers are heavier than electric scarifiers, but they are also more powerful.
The working width
The working width corresponds to the size of your lawn. If it is large, i.e. more than 800 square metres, it is better to aim for a thermal scarifier. Below this 800 square metres, you can use an electric scarifier.
Other criteria to be taken into account
It is also possible to find out if the scarifier has soft claws or knives. The claws are placed on small devices. For this reason, they do not penetrate the soil, so the lawn will remain more or less the same before and after their passage.
Knives, on the other hand, are more efficient because they cut the soil and therefore allow the roots to be aired. Thus, the more knives are numerous and closer together, the more efficient the scarification work is. Also, the thicker they are, the more resistant they are and do not require any special maintenance, which is certainly a great advantage.
