The AL-KO Comfort 38E Combi-Care electric lawn scarifier & rake 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!

Scarifying or Raking

The roller change does not require tools, so it is simple to change from the scarifier roller with three-stage steel blades to the lawnrake roller with efficient steel spring tines – complete lawn care in one machine.

The Right Working Depth, Always

Five-stage working depth adjustment with just one hand motion. This is important because the blades should just touch the ground when scarifying, in order to avoid them wearing down unnecessarily quickly and to avoid damaging the grass roots.

Quick Roller Changes

Quick and easy, the rollers are changed without tools by means of a thumbscrew. An optical safety indicator indicates whether the roller has been inserted correctly.

Height Adjustment

The four stage height adjustment of the handlebar is securely integrated in the housing enabling the handle bar height to be adjusted depending on the users height for comfortable working.


The large ventilation slots ensure adequate ventilation of the engine and are attractively integrated in the housing.

Easy to Clean

The smooth underbody of the scarifier means that when the scarifying work is completed, cleaning the machine is quick and easy.

Only used a a scarifier / rake as yet, and my, how effective! Follow instructions use lowest setting to start, and away you go! Only complaints are cable retainer easily blocks the movement of on switch and collector box fills too quickly! Too pedantic! Great effective product and easy to use. ALKO quality!

I have just scarafied over 1000 square meters of lawn. Very impressed with Combi. Also so easy to change the cutting tools.

Easy to assemble and to change the blades. The rear wheels are larger than on earlier models making it easier to manoeuve. The underside covered by a plastic shield which will make it easier to clean after dealing with damp grass. I was able to scarify a lawn approximately 80 x 30 feet in just over an hour. I understand that this new model has a thermal cut-out switch to protect the electric motor from over-heating and burning out. However, I consider that it would be advantageous if the scarifier was provided with an air filter that was easy to remove and clean, particularly when scarifying lawns in dry weather and producing much dust. I am pleased with the scarifer and with the speed of delivery.

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.
