The Lawnflite Optima 38VO petrol lawn scarifier has a rugged steel deck with a working width of 38cm (15"). It is equipped with durable fixed tines made of special steel which ensure a thorough job, whilst the rear-mounted 50 litre debris collector catches the raked out material, making this a one pass operation, ideal for gardens around 1500 square metres in size.

Depending upon the scale of the job in hand, the working depth of the Optima 38VO scarifier can be simply adjusted via a lever mounted on the handle. This ensures you can select the correct setting for either light scarification or heavier verticutter application without the need for tools. In addition to the scarifier shaft, a dethatcher shaft is included.

The Lawnflite Optima 38VO is powered by an MTD ThorX 55H engine with easy starting thanks to the cord minder. Weighing 29kg, this petrol scarifier is comfortable to use and easy to transport and store thanks to the large 7" wheels and ergonomic, fully folding handle.

Arrived on time and well packed. Assembly is straight forward. General impression is that it's a solid well engineered machine. It has now been used and I can confidently say it is the best one I have used in all respects. Changing the shafts from Scarifying to Aerator takes about one minute (No tools required)
