Sneeboer scarifying rake By Jim Hayward 5 11th October 2015

I have tried both powered and manual means of scarification of a medium sized lawn. The former was too harsh, initially almost ploughing, but, at least in my hands remained rather uncontrolled. The latter, using a sprung wire rake, was exhausting because of the downward pressure required. This scarifying rake, however, was a delight to use, cutting through the surface and lifting the thatch with relative ease. When using a pulling action only the tines do get clogged with material, but this is readily removed with a pushing action and causes no delay or break in rhythm. The long handle is welcome so the 'angle of attack' can be adjusted to suit. Overall a delight to use, like other Sneeboer tools, and makes a tedious job enjoyable and rewarding !

Impressive tool By Anonymous 4 13th April 2015

Excellent service and excellent tool. It does a great job, and my indifferent lawn is much improved: grass (instead of moss) now growing very well. I drop just one star on 'ease of use', because, although I am fit and completely used to gardening, I personally find it rather heavy and the handle a bit too long for optimum comfort. It would be too hard on the back and shoulders on anything but a very small lawn.
