Hints & Tips
Gardeners suffering from moss and other growth-inhibiting thatch should consider the Weibang WB384RB Pro Lawn Scarifier.
Priced at £465 including VAT, the machine is a professional-grade utility which gently but thoroughly gets rid of unwanted foliage from the lawn thanks to a set of 22 double-tipped carbon steel blades.
This practice then allows air, moisture and other vital nutrients to get into the root network and boost grass growth.
The Chinese manufacturer has built the machine with a 158cc Briggs & Stratton 550-Series engine, which has Prime 'N Pull technology, ensuring that just the right amount of fuel is used for quick and efficient starting.
It is designed to cope with large-scale use, with the wheels being mounted on long-lasting ball-bearings, while its pressed steel chassis and powder-coated paint finish protect the scarifier from rust.
A 40-litre debris collector comes as standard, and the machine is easy to push around as it weighs just 46kg.
