Scarifiers are divided into 3 main categories: thermal scarifiers (the most expensive, but also those suitable for large lawns), electric scarifiers (average price, average lawn size), and manual scarifiers (the cheapest, suitable for small lawns).
Scarifying rakes are therefore hand tools that are highly appreciated for their low cost, but also for the pleasure of gardening. In order to choose the right model, certain criteria must be taken into account.
The criteria to be taken into account
The weight of the scarifier, as well as the material of its handle, are very important criteria. Indeed, even if you like to spend hours gardening, you don’t want to do it in unpleasant conditions with a handle that hurts your hands after only a few minutes, or a tool that is too heavy to carry and operate.
Another criterion to be taken into account is the cutting width of the scarifier. The larger the width, the faster the work will be. In general, scarifying rakes have a working width between 28 and 45 cm, which is really satisfying.
On the working depth side, the scarifier rake does not allow several different positions, as is the case with electric and thermal scarifiers. It is therefore advisable to buy a manual scarifier that can go up to 2 cm.
