The AL-KO Comfort 38E Combi-Care electric lawn scarifier and aerator improves further upon its predecessor the award-winning 38VLE model.

Not only does the new design look great, but performance is enhanced thanks to the smooth underside which reduces debris accumulating and requires less cleaning, together with the large front air intakes which ensure efficient motor cooling and improved collection performance.  Incorporating larger rear wheels, the machine is more balanced and stable in operation and storage.

Through tool-free cassette changing it is simple to swap between the scarifying roller with three-step steel blades and the lawn raking roller with efficient steel spring prongs.  Gentle care lawn raking is achieved with 24 specially formed steel spring hooks, whilst more intensive scarifying is achieved with 14 special blades made with hardened steel.

It is quick and easy to adjust the working depth via the five-position central dial - one touch is sufficient to reach the desired depth: set it high for light raking duties, or low for deeper aeration using the hardened steel blades. A visual safety indicator shows whether the shaft is properly fitted and secure.

Featuring a 38cm working width and large 55 litre collection box, the durable AL-KO Comfort 38E Combi-Care enables you to carry out complete lawn care with a single machine.

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

This is an excellent machine. It has coped very well with our 500 square metre lawns. The only improvements I can see would be a much larger collection bag with wheels at the back end to stop it tipping over and an air blower into the bag to compact the grass so as to get more into it.

very pleased with the service, goods arrived within a couple of days from ordering, no damage to packaging and everything inside was in perfect condition. Have used the lawn rake on my tuff old lawn and was effortless, now waiting a few days before scarifying in order to top dress and add new seed. The machine runs very quietly and could not be heard in the house, excelent

Having read various reviews about the scarifier I decided the 38E was the best for me and I have to say so far it has met my expectations. The quality is better than models offered by large DIY retailers and the width is larger than most. I'm looking forward to the lawn being softened by rain so I can take maximum advantage of the 38E. I can not fault the supplier Green Reaper.
