Scarifying your lawn is an important part of the perfect lawn care. In effect it is a beauty treatment for your lawn. The process helps to fight against the notorious thatch which is formed in every lawn and blocks the supply of air, water and nutrients to the roots. Correct scarifying will let the lawn breathe again. The Cub Cadet  XC1 B40 will deliver the right amount of power to remove this thatch so that the sunlight, air and water can reach the soil and roots.

Back by popular demand and newly designed, the Cub Cadet XC1 B40 employs 17 flail double blades and 16 double springs, allowing for two functions in one machine: aerating and scarifying.  If the lawn requires aerating, use the higher position with a gentle touch of the blades and springs on the surface of the soil. If there is a need to scarify, use a deeper blade and spring setting which allows a more aggressive action on the lawn surface. A central height adjuster knob enables infinite working depth adjustment from 0 to -15m.

Featuring a wide 40cm (16") working width, the push-propelled machine is powered by Cub Cadet's own 35 H OHV engine and also has folding handles for easy storage or transport.

An optional 60 litre debris catcher is also available.
