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.

Dethatcher works well.
I have only used the dehatcher component of this machine so far. I tested it mid-summer rather than in the spring and it actually did the job too well i.e. removed too much live grass. Had I used it in the spring before the grass "greened up" I'm sure it would have performed more than satisfactorily.

The Sun Joe does a nice job at pulling thatch to the surface of lawn, however the machine is very delicate. My motor blew after the first use. The seller replaced it without hassle, and expeditiously I might add, but that doesn’t negate the fact that the machine needs to be babied when used and probably shouldn’t be used to dethatch a half-acre at a time as was my case.

It is a little workhorse! Light weight and easy to operate. It takes up grass like it was gas powered!

Excellent product for it price and size.
This machine does everything I expected for residential use. I did four different yards in the spring and worked great. Just two notes however. Handle connections to the machine are a little woobly so take care when make sharp or sudden direction changes. Also don’t use collection bag. This machine does such a good job you will be emptying bag every 2 minutes. Just use the machine and then rake up your grass.

Motor Problem after 2nd Run
Bought it last month (JUNE, and it doesn't work anymore after 1st use. Motor sound on but the cutting blade won't rotate anymore. Call the support and they will send a belt for replacement instead. Also, I don't see any document how to de-assemble. I thought SUNJOE will replace another one instead.

Very easy to assemble except the handle bar connections were in reverse making the knobs inside the bars. The catcher basket doesn't seem to catch the grass and it clogs up at the entry point thus making the basket useless. I am giving it a 4* since it performs better than expected. Got the job done and we saved a lot of money not having a service to our thatching. Just needed a little patience for the cleanup !
