My Qualcast scarifier has just given up the ghost - it was very good at its job, but I found the collection box a pain - loose fitting, and grass bits kept falling out the sides. 

Have any of you out there got any recommendations, or strong feelings for or against any particular makes - would welcome your input.

I just use a spring tine rake - hard work though.

Snap!  Cheaper than gym membership - aerobic exercise and good upper body workout!

If i used a rake on my huge lawns, i would have been there all summer, so we bought the Draper 45544..1.300 watt rake and scarifier, then followed it up with the Scotts easygreen rotar

y spreader and a sack of Westland feed weed and mosskiller, fantasic

 

Superb results and all done in a couple of hours.

I agree with both Forester and Dove, great exercise, but like Lyn my lawns are a bit too big - there are too many other jobs in the garden that need attention, and sometimes time is at a premium!

My sister lives down your way Lyn - near Beaworthy - and strangely enough she uses a Draper to tend her very large lawns, so perhaps I will check a Draper out a little more closely!

OH born and bred on a farm in Germansweek, his brother still runs it, maybe your sister buys their organic milk?.
