Tag Archives: Scarifier

A scarifier, (or dethatcher in the US) is a machine that removes thatch from lawns.

Types of scarifiers include those which are motor powered and those pulled behind a tractor.

A rake is not a scarifier, although some media still refer to them as such.
They work by powering vertical metal blades. These rotate on an axle and dig into the lawn and pull material out.
