If you want to give your lawn a good boost, you can use a scarifier. But that’s it, which one to choose?
Types of scarifiers
Be aware that there are different models of scarifiers: those that are manual, such as a kind of rake or equipped with wheels, which are suitable for small lawns; those that are gas powered, which offer good autonomy, especially for large lawns; and those that are electric, which are suitable for medium-sized lawns.
How to choose a scarifier
When choosing a scarifier, several criteria must be taken into account. One of these criteria is the price: a manual scarifier will cost less than an electric or petrol scarifier, i.e. around 40 euros. For electric scarifiers, those in the middle price range, a budget of between 80 and 350 euros will be required. As for petrol scarifiers, the most expensive, it will cost between 300 and 600 euros.
Another criterion to consider is the number of knives available to the scarifier, as they will determine the efficiency of the device. In principle, scarifiers have between 9 and 38 knives, and those made of hardened steel are the most resistant. The more knives there are in the scarifier, the more expensive it is.
Finally, we can also pay attention to the accessories that scarifiers can be equipped with. Some may have a height-adjustable handlebar, others have a waste collection bin, which can be very convenient to avoid bending over. And you can also pay attention to the working width of the scarifier.
