Product information

Description

Keep your lawn in an enviably healthy and verdant condition with this quality 38cm petrol-powered scarifier from leading brand MTD.

It’s equipped with a series of robust high-grade steel blades, the working-depth of which can be adjusted via a convenient handlebar-mounted lever – with a higher setting you’ll be able to carry-out lighter-duty moss and thatch removal that will enable your lawn to breathe and thrive; while with a lower setting selected the blades will cut almost invisible slits in the turf so as to enable air and moisture to penetrate the root network.

The MTD O38VO Petrol Scarifier is powered by a ThorX 55H engine; a 179cc four-stroke unit with a cord-minder for easy starting; and a dual-stage air-filter and cast-iron cylinder-sleeve for durability.

An overhead-valve configuration delivers a substantial cut in emissions and fuel-consumption; while an engine-muffler works to reduce noise for a more enjoyable working experience.

Thanks to its capacious 50-litre debris-bag, the MTD O38VO will enable you to get the job done in one pass with no need to rake-up when you’ve finished.

Its lightweight build (39kg) and large-diameter wheels make it easy to push, even on rough ground; while its fully foldable Ergo handle ensures it will take up minimal room in your garage or shed.

Very Impressed So Far Very pleased with the Scarifier and the fact that it has two different sets of interchangeable blades, depending on the type of scarifying you want to do.

My only gripes are the size of the collecting basket (too small) and the cheap plastic throttle control. Oh! and the delivery system was a pain as the carrier did not give a time slot for delivery, just the full day and then did not turn up on that day.

Easy to Use As ever was pleased with delivery etc. The scarifier is easy to set up and change between scarifier and aerator. Easy to use and fact the engine runs along whilst still is a bonus.

The grass collector is the only slight let down. It often needs emptying and doesn't fill very well, hence even more emptying. I suspect like many scarifiers it is not really designed for collecting and hence is a bit of an after thought. However, in the end it was quicker persisting with emptying than raking at the end!

10 out of 10 I prevaricated quite a bit before buying this machine and considered quite a few others, Hayter, Cobra, Mountfield, all around the £500 mark but I'm pleased I plumped for this one in the end and saved myself £100.

When I bought this, the description didn't make it clear but this machine comes with interchangeable scarifying and aeration reels which was a pleasant surprise. The scarifying reel with fixed steel blades as described and the aeration reel with sprung claws. Oddly neither the scarifying blades nor the aeration claws are 'balanced' in the sense that they re only single-ended and not opposed on the shaft which leads to a little bit of vibration in use.

My particular one came without any assembly instructions but as all the various controls and wires are pre-installed to the handle , assembly only consists of fitting the three sections of the handle itself to the machine body and this wasn't too much of an issue. However there were operation manuals for the machine itself and the engine in every imaginable language. The most difficult part of the whole operation was getting it out of the huge box it came in.

Once the handle was fitted, I filled it up with oil (supplied) and petrol and pulled the cord. It started first time and off we went. It's almost effortless to push, even on our sloping lawn, has a solid feel to it and removes amazing amounts of thatch. The debris bag works well but fills up all too quickly and needs regular emptying. This isn't a problem as the machine can be left with the engine idling and the cutter blades disengaged simply by releasing the dead mans handle. Pulling the handlebar- mounted lever right back lifts the blades clear of the ground for transport across hard surfaces and storage. The other handle by the front wheel has five positions and is for lowering the machine as the blades become worn to maintain optimum depth of cut.

All in all a very pleasing purchase.
