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.

Nice light machine
Nice unit and for price your not get a bulldozer. Works fantastic in normal and dry snow when wet hard for it to blow any distance. Maybe some pan spray would help. Great light to see at night. With electric machines the cord is al aus a hussle. Use heavy duty cord I tie line on it with loop and secure line above me so cord is in air up above. I just have 4 car drive side walk and park of street so an hour and I'm done.

I have a lot of moss and this thing is a huge help
I live in the Pacific Northwest, where moss is a state crop, at least west of the Cascades. Getting if out of the grass and off of everything else is a huge amount of work. This little guy rakes it loose in about 1/10th the time of doing it by hand. It's fairly quiet, easily adjustable, and seems to be holding up just fine.

Worth the investment
This is my first time to use a scarifier/de-thatcher and I was very impressed on how it performed. It did a very decent job on my lawn and backyard. I can't believe how much layers of dead grass has accumulated over the years.

Collection Bag????
The collection bag is a joke. I you use it you are stopping every 3 to 4 feet to empty it. At risk of bodily injury "as stated in the directions," I thatched front and back lawn without the bag, then raked and bagged is less time then it would have taken to use the collector. On the plus side the machine thatched like a champion and made the overall job a breeze.

electric lawn dethatcher was easy to assemble worked well at home. Took it to my cabin in Kentucky to try it on my yard there. Moss has taken over, the sun joe took up the moss easily. the bager dose not hold much, it was easier to rake up than empty bad.

My husband ordered this and I had no idea that to expect. We pulled it out of the box and when I felt how light it was, I thought it would never work. I was dead wrong. We dethatched the front yard quickly and easily. It was amazing how much dead grass was pulled up. We did not use the bag as it is a pretty large yard and did not want to constantly stop and empty the bag. One person ran the Dethatcher and the other raked and filled up the wheelbarrow. We are getting ready to do it again, but the yard is already looking much better!

I wish I would bought this year’s ago absolutely love it so easy to use the build quality is excellent highly recommend! I bought this for my lawn renovation and this helped out so much with taking up all the old dead grass up to get to soil layer for the grass seed to germinate better! So much easier then raking by hand! And also the power this unit has is incredible powers right threw the lawn with no hassle whatsoever. Thanks Sunjoe

Dethacher does an excellent job
This unit was purchased to replace a sears gas powered unit that wore out and I could not find a replacement .The price was very resonable and I am surprised that it does the job so well. Too bad that I have to pull around an electric cord ; a lithimum battery powered unit would be great. Also customer service is great.
