Product Overview

Get your lawn in top green shape with the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe AJ800E 14 in. electric dethatcher. Powered by a robust 11 Amp motor, the Dethatcher Joe rakes a 14 in. W path in a single pass to get your job done fast. Enhancing its raking ability is AirBoost technology, which maximizes thatch pickup with 24 spring steel tines that stay sharp longer for reliable performance. Use the 5-position depth control knob to tailor the raking depth from 0.12 in. (3 mm below the soil) to 0.35 in. (9 mm above the soil), depending on your lawn's dethatching needs. 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. ETL-approved. 2-year warranty.

Customer Questions & Answers

can you use this to rake moss out of grass?

Asked by: Ross
I think you could. You probably have to make a couple of passes. Higher setting first time, then lower setting.

Can this unit be used without the catch bag?

Asked by: GardenGirl
Yes, I would have recomnended using it without the bag as bag is so small I had to stop and empty it every 10 feet. But, the unit still shut down afterabout 20 feet anyway. I returned it for a refund. Waste of money in my opinion.

So this machine not only thatched but also is an airater?

Asked by: Snapcav
No, it only rakes up dead grass, leaves, etc. The aeration is accomplished by removing dead grass from top of lawn allowing access to more air.

14 in. 11 Amp Electric Dethatcher with Collection Bag is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 58.

It works well, at least as long as your extension reaches where you are working. I had killed my weedy yard and used it to tear up weeds and the ground before seeding. It gave me a nice seed bed. I really overworked the machine since I have half acre yard. It only overheated once. To keep it from overheating I would turn it off after each pass so that while I was turning around the motor could cool. In a few places where thatch was heavy I would make one pass with higher setting and then go over it again with deeper setting. I did not use the bag since I would have had to stop every five feet or so to empty it. It was easier to do the yard and then take up most of the mulch and weeds. I left some as ground cover to protect the seed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good unit, just except to take your time. This unit works pretty well. I found the catch bag to be not worth using though. It was easier to rake after than use the bag. It also needs to cool off after 5-10 minutes of use, so be prepared to take your time. I worked in sections and after raking one section the unit was ready to for the next. If it gets too hot it will quit working until the temperature drops, then works again. Also make sure to cut your grass fairly short before using. It makes things much easier! Also be sure to overlap your passes to ensure you get everything. If it holds up a couple seasons I'll say it was a great deal. I started with a thatch rake. They work great but take so much manual effort on a yard of any real size that this unit pays for itself in time and effort saved.

Had to let it cool before it would start again. Called the manufacturer they said I needed a smaller Guage extension cord. Was using a 14, so went out and bought a 10 Guage. That changed nothing. Same experience. Ran for about 10 mins, shut down for 20. Took it acknowledge and got a refund. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you only ended to dethatch about 5 square feet.

It is lightweight enough to be easily handled by a woman and really gets the job done on the lawn. I agree with other reviewers, however, that the best idea is to use it without the bag and do pickup afterwards with a rake or your mower (which has a much bigger bag). Just be careful to start by using the lowest settings of 1 or 2 so you don't pull out too much or our lawn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sun Joe dethacher Works great. Like the options of different height settings. Bag is a little small so I would have opted for the bagless version. Overall plenty of power. Pays for itself in just two uses compared to renting a machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I am not exactly gentile with tools. I needed this device to scarify my lawn as deep as possible so I bought it. Easy to assemble, just a few minutes. I stripped my 1/6 acre in about 2.5 hours with ease and no problems. The motor is powerful and the units structure is more than adequate. I wanted the mulch so I didn't use the mulch bag. The motor was powerful enough to scarify everything in its path. Plus the fairly narrow 14" path is actually a benefit on uneven ground. I am very pleased with the machines performance, it absolutely exceeded my expectations.

A piece of junk which overheated after three passes and which refused to cool down and restart, even after 30 minutes on a cold-ish day. It was returned within a day of being delivered. Too bad, because it did do a good job of dethatching in the three passes it survived for. Bottom line: save yourself the trouble and do not order this piece of lightweight, underpowered junk.
