Scarifier (scarifier) - garden device used for scarifying ie. aeration and cleaning the lawn from felt (moss, lingering old grass, weeds), the working elements of which are numerous blades, mounted on rotating drums
Based on the type of drive, scarifiers are divided into manual, electric or battery-powered and petrol scarifiers.
- A manual (mechanical) scarifier is a type of rake equipped with narrow, dagger-shaped teeth that cut into the soil to a depth of several cm. Such rakes may have wheels, which makes them easier to guide.
- Electric scarifiers, due to their power, are suitable for smaller areas (up to approx. 600 square meters).
- Diesel scarifiers can be used on acreages ranging from several hundred to several thousand square meters.
There are also 2-in-1 devices (the so-called Combi system - two rollers) combining the function of a scarifier and aerator in one device (for example. HECHT, OLEO-MAC, NAC).
There are also scarifiers in the form of a tractor attachment, designed for long-term intensive work on very large areas.
