Lawn Dethatchers


Master Hire’s lawn dethatchers, also know as scarifiers or power rakes, are the perfect tool to thin out and rejuvenate old lawns. These machines remove layers of built up thatch (dead grass roots and runners) in your lawn by running a series of spinning vertical blades or steel fingers over your grass to slice the dead thatch layer. This process of shredding the dead layer of grass allows water and oxygen to reach the grass roots which lets the soil breathe and promotes healthy regrowth.

These units have a blade cutting width of 457mm. For best results, mow before and after using the dethatcher. These walk behind units have a fold down handle making it easy to transport on the back of a ute or in a trailer. Overall weight is 59kg and the dimensions are 1160mm long, 670mm wide and 990mm high.
