The AL-KO Combi-Care 38 Comfort lawn scarifier & rake offers the benefits of the 38 E electric model, but with the additional benefit of an AL-KO 144F 53cc petrol engine.

The new aerodynamic design for not only looks great, but also improves performance.  The smooth underside reduces the amount of debris accumulating and requires less cleaning, while the large front air intakes ensure efficient motor cooling and improved collection performance.  Equipped with larger rear wheels, the new design makes the machine even more balanced and stable, whether in operation or storage.

The 38 P features a dual purpose lawn rake and scarifier cassette system meaning you can easily change the function of the machine to suit the job in hand. The patented five-position adjuster is quick and easy to adjust so that one touch of the dial is sufficient to reach the desired depth. Through tool-free cassette changing, it is simple to swap between the scarifying roll with three step steel blades and the lawn raking roll with efficient steel spring prongs.

Whether gentle lawn raking with 24 specially formed steel spring hooks, or more intensive care scarifying with 14 special hardened steel blades, the AL-KO Combi-Care 38P Comfort provides complete lawn care with a single machine.

With working widths of 38cm for scarifying and 37cm for aerating, the AL-KO Combi-Care 38 P Comfort is ideal for medium to large sized gardens.

NB: Supersedes 38VLB model.  A new look for an old favourite!

Great product. Easy to set up though it's not clear which attachment is the scarifier and which is the aerator. The aerator is the one with the wire rake which I thought was the other way around but there you go. In operation it is very effective. I have around 1,000m2 of lawn and now have a small mountain of the moss it extracted. I'd certainly recommend it though I don't think you'd want to tackle anything larger than 1,000m2 as it's not very wide and does take time to cover the area.

Excellent machine! More powerful than similar priced models I have tried and really pulls that thatch/moss out. Don't try and use the pointless bag though as it fills up in about 2 seconds! Just rake it up. Aerator also works well, but don't set it too deep as it is really powerful and will do some damage if too deep. I'm using this professionally and it is coping admirably. I would thoroughly recommend it over similar priced models out there - thinking Einhell mainly.

I have used electric scarifiers for many years - this is much better. I have approximately a third of an acre which it coped with admirably. Overall very impressed.
