Sun Joe 13-in 12 A Electric Lawn Dethatcher
 

Description

Powered by a robust 12 A motor, the Sun Joe AJ801E rakes a 13-in wide path in a single pass. The AirBoost technology enhances its raking ability, which maximizes thatch pickup with spring steel tines that stay sharp longer. 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.

  • Ideal for revitalizing small to mid-sized lawns
  • Powerful 12 A motor rakes a 13-in wide path to get the job done faster
  • The scarifier function cuts grass roots for thicker growth and healthier lawns
  • AirBoost technology: spring steel tines for maximum thatch pickup
  • Maintenance free: no gas, oil or tune-ups
  • Tailor raking depth with 5-position depth control
  • Detachable thatch collection bag for easy disposal

I noticed that this machine is categorized as a lawn aerator. I'm just wondering if core aeration becomes unnecessary by using this machine. Thanks in advance for your answer!

Asked by: Jon Jin
The scarifier option will cross cut the grass roots and create better air/water absorption. This is done in September though and not at the beginning of spring so as not to damage tender spring grass. The thatcher option is done in the early spring once the ground is dry and the grass is somewhat established. This lets the grass breathe. We used ours this year for the first time and our grass is so thick and green. Of course we over seeded and fertilized the lawn ourselves too. This is probably the only tool you will need for heavy duty lawn care.

Will this machine damage sprinkler heads?

Asked by: Lawnlover
I have a small lawn, so my sprinkler heads are off to the sides in garden beds. However, I did hit a sprinkler head with a thatching tine. It left a mark on the head but it still works. I was lucky. I think the scarifying blade will damage sprinkler heads. You may want to mark the locations of your sprinklers and go around them. The machine does work great.

Item, description and manual says this product I'd a dethatcher but title of the product says lawn mower? I need to confirm which one is correct!

Asked by: Vamsi
If you know what a lawn mower looks like, than you'd know this isn't one. It's a dethatcher aka power rake.

Sun Joe 13-in 12 A Electric Lawn Dethatcher is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 187.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lawn thatcher and soil slicer I used this machine to thatch and slice seed my approx 14000 sq foot lawn. I did this over 2 days using a heavy gauge 100 foot power cord. This machine thatched as good as any gas powered rental machine. It has a special thatching wheel with multiple height adjustments. I didn't use the bag attachment because it would fill up too fast. I picked the thatch up with a riding mower. I then used the special interchangeable soil slicer wheel. I used the height adjustment t o slice the soil and then followed up with seed and starter fertilizer using a broadcast spreader. My lawn came out great. I no longer need to rent gas powered machines every fall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a small yard I used this prior to over seeding my yard. I dethatched and used the aerator tool. It does a decent job. No idea if it will stand up over time because it doesn't "seem" sturdy but it's surprisingly good. The bag fills way too fast. You're better off not using it and raking. I wish it had a "plug/corer" tool as well. That would seal the deal. Advice: do not use this first on your main lawn - practice on a side strip or boulevard. Within a few minutes you will get the hang of it. Set it a bit high to begin with because you can adjust down. Careful at the edge of the lawn that you don't scalp it. You may want to turn it off and lift the blade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Dethatcher I was pleasantly surprised by this little guy. If you have an average sized lawn where the farthest corners can be reached by a 100' extension cord,, then this will do the job. Works like a mower that pretty much self-propels itself, only this machine's path is approximately 12" wide so it'll take a little longer than your average mow. I've only used it once thus far, but the only thing I see as a potential issue over time is how soft the plastic got. The part used to power the machine on started to feel softer and started to "give" a little more than when I first started to use it. Other than that, it did a great job of digging up thatch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for average lot size I received the product, reviewed the assembly instructions, and found it easy to put together - it maybe too 30 minutes. I tested it out on a part of my yard with the rake drum, and it worked great. A few days later I did my entire yard in about 2 hours ( about 9,000 sq ft grass), and it worked very well. I did have to empty the grass catcher every couple of minutes - but all I can say is that this is much easier than raking by hand - that would take me at least 10 hours - and this is so much easier! As someone over 65 this is very easy, and since it is lightweight easy to hang-up in the garage till I need it again next spring!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine... This little baby really does the job. I used the thatching attachment. Easy to put on the machine. Just make sure you use the proper gauge extension cord. Very important. I used one rated for 12 amps. This machine really brought my lawn back. I had tons of spongy thatch. I had to go over it all 3 times, but it did the job, and it was actually fun. Then I just sucked the debris up with my mower. Took two passes to do that, but well worth it. I could actually almost hear my yard sighing with relief to get the tons of thatch off it. My yard had not been thatched for years. It is looking tremendous after two short weeks. The catcher is too small on the negative. Other than that...a great little machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I won’t hand rake again! This was very easy to use and change the rollers from dethatcher to scarifier. I would recommend this product to anyone who can’t or doesn’t want to hand rake. This brings up more of the dead thatch than hand raking. Despite the comments concerning the size of the collection bag I wasn’t inconvenienced by having to empty the bag frequently. The only reason I rated four stars is because I would have preferred a battery-operated machine owing to the shape of my lawn and having to feed the electric cord around shrubbery. When I compared the cost of the Sun Joe dethatcher with the charges by lawn care companies I will break even in less than two years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time and effort saving! I am so happy I purchased the Sun Joe Dethatcher, it save me a lot of time and effort. In years past I manually thatched my lawn with a thatching rake which took several hours spread out over several days, as we have a large yard. The Sun Joe was easy to use and did the trick. I limited myself to 3 hrs. a day and was finished in 4 days. It's early yet in Spring but my lawn looks really good at this point. And, I'm not worn out from hand raking like I was in the past, it would take me a few days to recover. I might add that I am retired and always looking for ways to simplify my life. The Sun Joe was one of those ways!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money Well Spent!!! I love this little machine!! Makes de-thatching the lawn so much easier and it does a great job as well!! I did my lawn and my Dad's lawn without any issues even with thick lawns as the motor has more than ample power. What took me 4-5 hours to do before (both properties) only took me 2 hours with this machine! As mentioned by other reviews, the only downside is the small bag and the cord getting in the way. Both of these are minor when considering how easy it is to dethatch your lawn with this machine. To top it off, Lowes offered $10 discount when I ordered it online. IMHO, it's the best $179 I've spent in a long time!
