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.

This is a wonderful product. I'm a 60+ year old female (not the strongest) and I thatched the front yard bermuda grass with it, prior to overseeing with winter rye grass. I took off 12 large lawn and leaf garbage bags with this little but mighty thatcher. It worked far beyond my expectations. Lightweight, easy to use. Loaned it to my son in law to try in his back yard. He, too, thought it was a great tool.

Great machine
For getting soil ready for reseeding this machine works really well for do it your self folks.
I removed, a surprising, 8 trash cans of old grass from my small front yard.
I used the dethatcher first, then the scarifier.
From previous reviews I did not use the catch bag.
Down to mostly bare ground.
The new grass seed must have liked the preparation.
Planted seed and put starter fertilizer with it September 27 2018.
Mowed plush new fescue lawn October 29 2018.

Used 12 gauge 100 ft cord. Sun Joe had plenty of power to get 'er done !
Customer service is outstanding.

Awesome product.
Each and every year I would spend hrs raking the thatch in my lawn and never have I finished raking the entire lawn. But this year I was done raking the entire lawn in about a day using this amazing product from SunJoe. Heading to the advice of many of the reviewers, I did not use the collection bag. Assembling this unit was a breeze. A couple of my neighbors had stopped by and inquired about this product. I told them that this is worth the buy and is a very good investment. In spring I plan to use the scarifier.

Product works well and is easy to use. Removed lawn thatch with ease. Collection bag is too small.

Very good lawn dethatcher!
I looked around at a few models on the internet and decided on the Sun Joe. I'm very happy I chose this product for my lawn. It is very import to get the correct rated extension cord for this unit that is listed in the instructions. That said the unit ran great and did an excellent job of removing thatch from my yard. When the unit is running it is very easy to push forward. Just be careful not to stay in one place for an extended period of time with it running. It also very easy to change attachments with the Sun Joe.
I do agree with other reviews that the collection bag is a joke. I didn't deduct any stars because I ran the unit without the bagger attached and then used my mower with bagger to pick up the thatch. I also like the depth control and that is very easy to adjust.
I used the dethachter about 4 weeks ago and my lawn looks much better. The new grass seed I added to the lawn is coming in nicely and my lawn can breathe again!

Great little machine
I have a small yard and the Sun Joe on a 50' cord works perfectly. I would have given it 5 stars except the rear bag grass catcher is a joke. It really does work fine without it.

Great investment for a great looking lawn
After 17 years of never detaching, my lawn needed help. I wasn't going to use a hand powered rake. After many hours of research I went with the Sun Joe, it had 12 amp power, 5 depth settings,& dethatcher / scarifier rollers. I would have given it 5 stars if it had a larger collection bag. I found it better to not use the bag and run a bungee cord across rear bottom of housing to keep the shield slightly open. My lovely Wife followed me with a self propelled yard vac.
