Product Overview


Let your lawn breathe. Get your lawn in top green shape with the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe AJ801E 13 in. 12 Amp Electric Scarifier/Lawn Dethatcher with Collection Bag. Powered by a robust 12 amp motor, the Dethatcher Joe rakes a 13 in. wide path in a single pass to get your job done fast. Enhancing its raking ability is AirBoost technology, which maximizes thatch pickup with spring steel tines that stay sharp longer for reliable performance. Use the 5-position depth control knob to tailor the raking depth from -0.4 in. (10 mm below the soil) to 0.4 in. (10 mm above the soil), depending on your lawn's scarifying or dethatching needs. Scarifying your lawn at regular intervals cuts grass roots and encourages growth for thicker, healthier turf.
Thatch is a dense mat of roots, stems and grass clippings that accumulates on lawns over time, blocking the flow of water, oxygen and vital nutrients. It is important to periodically remove thatch in order to keep your lawn green and healthy. While ordinary manual rakes are tiresome to use and not very effective, the electric Dethatcher Joe starts instantly with the push of a button and easily gets the job done without polluting the atmosphere with toxic carbon emissions. No gas, oil or tune-ups make the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe your green choice for greening your lawn. The machine is ETL approved and backed by a full two-year manufacturer warranty.

Money well spent if you want a great lawn
This is a must have for a serious lawn geek. Light weight, easy to use and really rakes your grass. Make sure you have an extension cord heavy enough to get current to the machine. Forget the bag. Use your mowers bagger and suck up the stuff or blower to move to piles and pick it up. Great for over seeding.

I would give this machine 5 stars if only the bag was bigger. I implore sun joe to make a bigger replacement bag for this machine!

I recommend this Product!
I have used this three times already to dethatch my lawn and it has done a great job! It has paid for itself already. I just wish it had a latch to hold the plastic cover up while I attach the bag back onto the machine. Other than that, this is perfect and I definitely recommend this machine!

Worked beuatifully; customer service is great!
Our yard is a 1/4 acre so we followed the directions for multiple days and it worked like a charm. The incline was easily handled with the dethatcher.

Good product, needs a tweak or two
I have used this product only with the de-thatching attachment. It is WAY easier than raking. I only have a couple issues, and both are with the collection bag. VERY small. Even so, often emptying still beats raking and clean-up. Second issue: as the product is shipped, the hard plastic bottom of the collection bag comes in bowed upward. This actually blocks the “debris” from entering the bag, necessitating more frequent emptying. After 1/2 hour, I Gorilla taped a piece of wood to the bottom...worked great. SnowJoe...perhaps a hard “shim” that could slide into a sleeve on bottom of bag during set up?? Overall, great product for the $$. Very happy and would recommend. Helpful info for prospective customers: yard is 100’ x 50’. It is electrical!! Don’t run over your extension cord!!

I was really surprised.
I was very surprised at the overall performance of this dethatcher w/bag. I have to admit I'm not crazy about the bag. I used it but found it to be more of a hindrance due to the small amount of thatch it held compared to the LARGE amount of thatch picked up. Overall great product, I do highly recommend.

Awesome areator!
Very easy to use. Some spots I had to first use the scarifier blade and then the dethatcher attachment. Others I was able to just use the dethatcher. Worked so well and so easy to do. After one treatment, the lawn looked so much healthier. The blades pull it along so you have no trouble pushing it. The only problem would be that the bag gets full of the dead grass so fast!! A lot of dumping happening. :)

Fragile and shaky
Screws to handle became loose in first use. Collection bag too small fills up in few steps.
