Revive an ailing, spongy lawn by removing all that strangulating moss and thatch with the powerful and easy-handling MTD Optima 35 VO Petrol Scarifier.
Driving its 15 hardened-steel scarifying blades is an MTD ThorX 35 engine; a 123cc four-stroke unit that develops a substantial 3.1hp; and which features OHV technology for a significant cut in fuel-consumption; damaging exhaust particulates; and vibration.
A twin-stage air-filter ensures debris in comprehensively removed from the air-intake so as to extend the life of key components; while a muffler works to make the job less stressful for both you and your neighbours.
The MTD Optima 35 VO is a push-type machine with a compact 35cm working-width; a combination that makes it perfect for lawns with lots of trees, ornaments, shrubs and borders to work around.
It boasts a two-position height-adjustable handlebar, so you’ll be able to achieve a comfortable working-position whatever your stature; and it’s supplied with a large-capacity 45-litre thatch-catcher that means there’s no need to tidy-up with your hand-rake.
Thanks to its six-step depth-adjustment (0 to -15mm), the MTD Optima 35VO can be set-up either for gentle raking, or more aggressive verticutting.
A transport-position makes it possible to push the unit from site to site without the blades digging-in; while ball-bearing-mounted wheels ensure season after season of free-rolling performance.
