- Afri-fab Made a Back Breaking Job a Pleasant One
Afri-fab Made a Back Breaking Job a Pleasant One I purchased the Agrifab platform, De-thatcher and roller from MowDirect one day and it arrived next day.
A few days earlier I had ordered it with another company who 4 days later told me they wouldn't have any stock until August!! Thankfully MowDirect did have stock.
My only negative at this point is the packaging for the platform was damaged on arrival. This isn't MowDirect's fault. I have read a number of reviews where the packaging on the platform simply isn't substantial. Assembly of the platform is a little bit awkward for one person but do-able. Took about 30 minutes.
When I came to fit the De-thatcher it wouldn't fit. Easily fixed. If I was to put another together I would leave all of the bolts slightly loose that hold the side supports to the platform top.
Works great. Had previously spent 6 hours the previous weekend with a drag along petrol scarifier.
The Agrifab De-thatcher took more moss out in a fraction of the time.
- Poor Assembly instructions for Some Parts and Not All Holes Drilled!
Poor Assembly instructions for Some Parts and Not All Holes Drilled! I bought the whole system, which includes several attachments. In general the system works pretty well and although not of commercial grade, it is fine for my lawns which add up to about 2 acres.
Assembly instructions of the hollow Tyne aerator are a joke and consist of a single drawing and hundreds of parts. Worse was the fact that not all the holes for the carrier had been drilled in thie manufacturing process. I would bet this is a significant batch problem and will affect quite a number. It was necessary for me to use a pillar drill to make the bolt holes for the wheels. Not good!
- Well made good value product for large lawns
Well made good value product for large lawns I ordered the master platform plus de-thatcher and aerator. The equipment arrived in good condition the day after placing the order!
The equipment is solid and fairly easy to assemble, with a ratchet set and spanners (even though the parts were not exactly as shown in the assembly diagram).
The working width of the equipment is excellent and has made the lawn care much easier, though with 25 years of neglect I will be de-thatching for some while yet.
