The E401 professional lawn scarifier is the smallest in the Eliet range and is a robust dethatching machine for life, capable of providing outstanding performance. This model is powered by a renowned 4hp Honda GP160 engine.

The 40cm operating width of the Eliet E401 makes it suitable for small and medium-sized gardens. Its sturdy construction makes this petrol lawn scarifier indestructible thanks to the robot-welded steel chassis, strong wheels with natural rubber tyres and dust-proof bearings with shield plates. The ingenious belt coupling reduces belt wear to a minimum and extends its working life considerably.

The Eliet E401 is equipped with a set of 14 fixed Permanently Sharp Blades™. Just like every Eliet dethatching machine, the Eliet E401 has an unrivalled raking efficiency, so that you can ventilate your lawn in the approved manner. 

As the Eliet E401 is light and manoeuvrable, it can be used on every single square centimetre of your lawn. Thanks to the infinitely variable depth adjustment, you can set the working depth extremely accurately. The spacious moss collection bag saves you from spending time tidying up. The handle of the machine can be easily folded away, minimising the storage space in your garage and making it easy to transport in your car.

The most important part of the scarifier is the knife drum which is hidden underneath the machine. Here again, Eliet makes the difference. This ensures that the owner of an Eliet scarifier will always be able to benefit from a longer blade life and take pride in the fact that the machine is always working at maximum efficiency. Over more than 25 years, Eliet has developed three blade types - fixed, loose and double cut - each with their own qualities. It is therefore important to choose the blades that are best suited to the type of lawn you usually work on. The blades are fixed to a hexagonal steel shaft and assembled in a spiral pattern. Wear-resistant nylon spacers secure the blades or blade holders (in the case of loose blades) firmly in position. The dustproof bearings on which the knife drum is suspended in the housing are always equipped with extra cover plates, providing additional protection against sand and flying clippings.

THE TECHNOLOGY

Fixed Blades

The Eliet E401 is fitted with 14 blades which are securely fixed to the drum knife. The heavy duty blades are 3mm thick, which means they can take a knock or two. Each blade has two sharp cutting edges. The blades are spaced 2cm from each other. You can tackle virtually any lawn with these robust blades.

Permanently Sharp Blades™ for a splendid lawn

Every Eliet dethatching machine is equipped as standard with Permanently Sharp Blades™. As a result of this blade concept developed for Eliet, the blades are specially treated so that they retain their sharp cutting edge during their working life. As these blades always remain sharp, you can wear them fully down without sacrificing efficiency.

Eliet blades are guaranteed to have a minimum working life of 100 hours. You can only perform dethatching work properly when you use Permanently Sharp Blades™ from Eliet, and not when using other blades. A good surface treatment has nothing at all to do with depth. The main objective is to ensure that all of the moss and weeds are perfectly raked up to the surface so that they can then quickly be gathered or sucked up. This is the only way to ensure that your lawn surface is in peak condition. In a dense and airy lawn, the grass roots are less susceptible to drying out. Eliet dethatching machines are therefore the best dethatching machines for your lawn.

The importance of sharp blades

During the dethatching work, the blades must grip, rake up and raise the layer of thatch and moss underneath your lawn. In this respect, the edge of the blade plays a crucial role. Many blades become blunt after being used for a few hours, and consequently lose their capacity to grip. This results in the operator easily being inclined to adjust the machine so that it operates deeper. However, this has a destructive effect. Blunt blades can no longer cut, but instead dig up a lot of earth and soil. The grass roots are also subjected to irreversible damage and the machine is more susceptible to wear.

Robust Frame

Robust construction ensures durability. The blade shaft is located within a thick steel housing to protect bystanders from flying debris.

 

Fixed Blades

With a 40cm dethatching width, the rotor has 14 blades securely fitted. Each blade has two cutting edges so that the blade makes two raking motions for each revolution of the blade shaft. The blades are mounted in a spiral pattern so they do not touch the ground at the same time in order to prevent grass sods from being torn loose.

 

Large Wheels

20cm wheels run more smoothly, even on uneven terrain. The nylon rims are shock resistant and the roller bearings can withstand sandy, dusty conditions.

 

Infinitely Variable Front Wheels

Height adjustment at the front wheels is infinitely variable. As the height of each front wheel is adjusted separately, you can be sure that the blade shaft has the correct depth adjustment across the entire operating width.

 

Rear Wheels Depth Adjustment

The rear wheels can be set to different fixed positions. The dual adjustment capabilities all you to use the blades until they are completely worn.

 

Spacious Collection Bag

Large 60 litre collection bag with wide opening is ample for the moss from several tens of metres.

Rubber Deflector

The well-sized deflector protects the user when working without the collection bag.

 

Vertical Belt Tension

This system virtually eliminates wear on the belt.

 

Fold-Down Handlebar

Easily foldable handle occupies less storage space.

ABOUT ELIET....

All Eliet machines are built in the heart of Europe. As a Belgian manufacturer Eliet's home market is limited, so the company is focused on export.

Ever since it was established, Eliet has specialised in a number of niche markets. More than 20 years down the line, Eliet continues to produce machines in the three most important areas of application:

- Garden waste treatment
- Lawn maintenance and lawn creation
- Waste clearance

ELIET AND TECHNOLOGY

Eliet develops and patents its own technologies due to the active application of the built up know-how with which Eliet machines stand out from the rest and have managed to grow to become a standard in the world of garden professionals.

The horizontal corporate structure of this family enterprise, moreover, is the gateway to major flexibility when it comes to meeting the ever-greater demands of the market. Proof of the pudding is the freedom and dynamism of the research department, which frequently designs innovative machines and technologies. Eliet is a fully integrated company, which manages its own R&D, production, assembly and logistics. That structure delivers an array of significant advantages for the end user in particular.

The close alliance between R&D, production and sales ensures that machines are continuously fine-tuned to meet the needs of the moment and to offer new functions. For Eliet the quality of its machines is paramount. That is guaranteed by permanent quality control of each step in the production process.

Eliet products are always manufactured with precision thanks to advanced production technologies and automation. The high quality of finished Eliet machines is a direct consequence of the know-how and experience of Eliet's committed workforce. Every part selected by Eliet, moreover, has to meet the company's own strict quality requirements. The choice of a flexible assembly line where each technician is involved in each and every step in the production of a machine reduces the chance of manufacturing errors. This ensures that it is not just the end customer who is satisfied with the machine.
