Excellent Product for the Money
I recently purchased one of these scarifiers and found like many others that even on the highest setting it was removing most of my lawn. I have seen that this has been the only complaint from most people. I read suggestions regarding putting larger wheels on this, but there is a much simpler solution.
The adjustment lever connects to an operating bar that is connected to the front wheel assembly. This bar is about 20mm wide by 2.5mm thick steel with an 8mm hole drilled at each end. I have made a replacement (though out of aluminium bar) but a little longer, with the two holes about 20mm further apart. *It has transformed the operation, now on the highest setting it just touches the grass, removing moss and dead grass. Move a setting down and it clears thatch and moss down to the roots. Move lower still and it aerates the lawn.
A very nice piece of garden equipment which was easy to put together, starts easily and is suprisingly quiet in operation.
Delivery from MowDirect was quick and efficient.
Several people have complained about the size of the collection basket and how quickly it fills an needs emptying. I'm afraid that this is a problem with every scarifier I have used, they all have small bags and the scarifier produces mountains of stuff! The answer is to throw the bag away and rake up afterwards.
