Product Overview

  • Enhanced raking ability
  • 5-position depth control knob
  • Starts easily with push of button
Get your lawn in top green shape with the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe AJ801E 13 in. electric scarifier + lawn dethatcher. Powered by a robust 12 Amp motor, the Dethatcher Joe rakes a 13 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 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.

is it a cultivate too?

Asked by: Chris
Using the scarfing attachment will help aerate the surface of the soil, and also knock off the tops of some weeds... but the blades do not go deep enough be a cultivator.

Sun Joe 13 in. 12 Amp Electric Scarifier + Lawn Dethatcher with Collection Bag is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 432.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME ! AWESOME !! The assembly out of the box was simple. It took less than10 minutes to have this Dethatcher assembled. After that..... plug it in and "let er rip!" There are 2 different "rollers" included. The "scarifier" and the "dethatcher". I knew that my yard needed dethatched, but I didn't know the purpose of a "scarifier". A scarifier is a roller that has rows of blades. They are designed to break up the top layer of soil and cut all the long grass runners that run along the ground and create a barrier that inhibits growth and blocks some of the water from getting through to the root system. This scarifier removes and later collects much of the dead grass in the bag . The dethatcher removes and rakes the dead grass and debris into the collection bag. It is less aggressive than the scarifier The machine includes instructions for the best time to use the scarifier and the dethatcher. I would highly recommend this unit for a small yard. Remember, it runs on electric and they suggest you don't use a cord longer than 100 feet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, needs a tweak or two I have used this product only with the de-thatching attachment. It is WAY easier than raking. I only have a couple issues, and both are with the collection bag. VERY small. Even so, often emptying still beats raking and clean-up. Second issue: as the product is shipped, the hard plastic bottom of the collection bag comes in bowed upward. This actually blocks the “debris” from entering the bag, necessitating more frequent emptying. After 1/2 hour, I Gorilla taped a piece of wood to the bottom...worked great. SnowJoe...perhaps a hard “shim” that could slide into a sleeve on bottom of bag during set up?? Overall, great product for the $$. Very happy and would recommend. Helpful info for prospective customers: yard is 100’ x 50’. It is electrical!! Don’t run over your extension cord!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a 5 star. A purchase that I do not regret. Love it. So easy to work with. I did not use the bag as it filled up quickly when i worked on the lawn for the first time, but second time I used it that is after 6 weeks. Lawn looked bare but now after adding soil and seeds and watered it with a soaker, unbelievable. Definitely a 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a surprise!!! Simple and easy to operate, If you use a 12 gauge power cord on a 20 amp circuit you should have no issues. Definitely surprised how much dead grass came up with dethatcher and even more surprised how easily the scarifier cut into the turf and pulled an unbelievable amount of thatch out with no effort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used it as soon as I got the right electrical... Used it as soon as I got the right electrical cord for it! The cord home depot suggested was improper for the unit and would have caused problems! So after spending another 100.00 for a 12 gauge 100ft GCFI enable cord I used it on my large front yard, worked but it will tear it up if not careful!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap feel, don’t expect a long life. Really cheap feel to the handle. Especially the tapping screws into plastic houseing. But, unit does work well. Quality issues expected down the road. But, if you use it 2x per year should get 5 years out of it.
Date published: 2019-10-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a smaller yard. Great for use on smaller yards. Be prepared to empty the bag frequently during your first couple of uses. Scarifier attachment is great for opening up the soil before overseeing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little device... better than raking ! Used it once so far in the spring and worked great. Really made a difference this grass season, grass looks great. Will see how it holds up.
