Thatch is extremely common throughout New Zealand, and can keep water and air from reaching the soil and, if left untreated, can create an environment that harbours pests and diseases.

The Ryan de-thatcher or Power Rake features a rotating de-thatching rake that removes layers of dead grass, roots and debris matted between the soil and the growing grass, keeping the grass greener and healthier while minimizing the chance of disease.

The machine has and easy-to-operate height adjustment to allow you to fine-tune the depth from 25mm above the ground to 20mm below. The ergonomic, multi-position handle is designed for different user heights, and it folds for storage and transport.

The scarifier has an operating width of 457mm.
